Rioter pleads not guilty to probation breach
Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio, who avoided jail time for her part in the June 2011 mayhem, is due back in court next week after allegedly breaching her probation on Saturday.
A Stanley Cup rioter who vowed in a blog to make better life decisions has pleaded not guilty to violating probation after avoiding jail time for her role in the mayhem.
Camille Cacnio, who didn’t appear in Vancouver Provincial Court Monday, is accused of breaching a curfew imposed on her following riot sentencing last September.
Jason Tarnow, the lawyer representing the Richmond woman, wouldn’t comment on the circumstances of the alleged violation, but said there is “language in her probation order that permits her to be outside past her curfew.”
The 24-year-old’s trial is March 15.
Cacnio gained notoriety following the Stanley Cup riot, when she posted a blog briefly apologizing for taking part in the June 2011 riot before devoting thousands of words to explain why she didn’t deserve such harsh public backlash.
