A Stanley Cup rioter who stole a pair of pants from Black & Lee as a “souvenir” of the chaos in downtown Vancouver has been accused of breaking her court-ordered curfew.
Richmond resident Camille Cacnio was reportedly arrested at a traffic stop on Jan. 5, 2013, less than four months after being ordered not to leave home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. as a condition of her sentence.
Cacnio was charged with breach of probation order, a count her lawyer Jason Tarnow pleaded not-guilty to on her behalf Monday in Vancouver provincial court.
Tarnow said his defence will centre around “lawful excuse,” noting that Cacnio’s conditions state that she can legally break curfew for a medical emergency or with written permission from a probation officer.
Cacnio became one of the most high-profile riot suspects due to an entry she posted on her blog admitting to stealing the pants and explaining that it was “purely fun for me.”
She pleaded guilty to participating in a riot and break and enter last year, and was sentenced in September to two years of parole. She was also ordered to perform 150 hours of community service.
Cacnio is scheduled to appear in court again on March 15.
