VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - A former beauty queen who was one of the highest-profile suspects in the Vancouver Stanley Cup riots has pleaded guilty.
Sophie Laboissonniere, who was 20 during the June 2011 riots after the Canucks lost in the National Hockey League finals, was not in court when her lawyer entered the plea Monday on her behalf.
She was among the first suspects charged. Reports quickly identified her as the winner of Miss Congeniality at a Vancouver beauty pageant.
Laboissonniere was charged with one count of participating in a riot and one count of breaking and entering. David Baker, her lawyer, says she pleaded guilty to the riot charge, while the break-and-enter charge will be dropped. Details of her actions during the riot will come out at a sentencing hearing later this year.
