Prisoner pleads guilty after HMP Birmingham riot
A prisoner has admitted his part in a major riot at HMP Birmingham that caused an estimated £3m in damage.
Nathan Weston, 22, pleaded guilty to prison mutiny at Birmingham Crown Court earlier.
He will be sentenced after the trial of seven other men who have been charged over the major disorder on 16 December, which involved up to 500 inmates.
They have been charged with taking part in a prison mutiny intending to overthrow lawful authority at the jail.
John Burton, 39, Robert Smith, 33, Luke Mansell, 23, and Ross Wilkinson, also 23, all appeared in court to deny the charge.
Grant Samed, 30, did not enter a plea to the charge.
Ross Queen, 30, and Carl Brookes, 32, are both accused of prison mutiny and unauthorised taking of a photograph in jail.
A trial date was fixed for 11 September.
