Maple Ridge rioter pleads guilty
A Maple Ridge man has pleaded guilty to rampaging through the streets of downtown Vancouver during last year's Stanley Cup riot.
Connor Blair Epp, 20, entered a plea to one count of participating in a riot on Monday in Vancouver provincial court.
A charge of mischief he faces will likely be stayed.
A total of 91 people have been criminally charged in connection with the June 15 rampage that erupted after the Vancouver Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals to the Boston Bruins last year.
Onlookers shot video and photos and posted them on social media, fueling what has become a massive crowd-sourced police investigation.
Besides Epp, four other men from Maple Ridge face similar charges.
They include: Michael David Anderson, 21, Jeff Post, 20, Andrew Glenn Cuthbert, 20 and Jordan Houde, 18.
Epp had also been charged with one count of mischief, a charge that was dropped, likely in exchange for a guilty plea, as is a common practice.
He will be sentenced on Aug. 10.
