VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - A former beauty queen whose crowning as Miss Congeniality made her one of the highest-profile suspects in Vancouver's Stanley Cup riot has pleaded guilty.
Sophie Laboissonniere, who was 20 at the time of the June 2011 riot, was not in court this week, 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.
