A judge has issued an absolute discharge for a 24-year old man who was charged with vandalism at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal during the student strike in February of 2012.
François Vivier Gagnon was among a gang of about 150-striking students who stormed the school and then tried to barricade themselves inside.
Police eventually cleared the school and made 30 arrests.
The judge's decision to give Vivier Gagnon an absolute discharge means he will not have a criminal record, but he has also been ordered to pay $650 in compensation for the damage caused.
Vivier Gagnon is a sociology student at UQAM.
His troubles with the law are far from over though.
He has has been charged with two other people of setting off smoke bombs in the Metro in May of 2012, and that case is still pending.
