A Comox man who faced the most counts against him for participating in last year's Stanley Cup riot pleaded guilty to rioting.

A Comox man who faced the most counts against him for participating in last year’s Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver pleaded guilty to rioting, and could face jail time.

Timothy Lau was charged with four counts of mischief to property over $5,000, two counts of mischief, two counts of break and enter and commit indictable office and one count of taking part in a riot.

As Lau pleaded guilty to the most serious charge, his other charges are to be stayed.

According to media reports, Crown argued Lau should be jailed for six to nine months.

Lau is scheduled to make his next appearance Nov. 5 at 2 p.m. in Vancouver provincial court.

He also faces an unrelated breach of a court-imposed condition charge for a previous incident in Ucluelet.
