A U.S. citizen convicted of taking part in Toronto’s G20 riots back in 2010 has been sentenced to seven months in prison.

Richard Dean Morano, of Lackawaxen, Pa., one of the so-called "black bloc" protesters, was sentenced in a Toronto court Monday.

Morano was charged with 14 counts including mischief, endangering life, assaulting a police officer with a weapon and six counts of mischief over $5,000 during the G20 protests on June 26, 2010.

Police alleged that Morano smashed a police car window with a rock while an officer was inside and broke multiple windows at various stores, coffee shops and a bank.
