Ezra Miller, star of the movie ‘Flash,’ pleaded guilty in Vermont Superior Court on Friday to misdemeanor unlawful trespass. The charge was added by the State of Vermont in December. According to the plea deal obtained by NEWS10, it changes Miller’s original plea of not guilty to felony burglary and misdemeanor petit larceny; both of those charges were dropped as part of this plea deal. Miller was accused of breaking into a long-time friend’s home and stealing several bottles of alcohol in May of last year.
Court documents obtained by NEWS10 said that the homeowners identified Miller with security camera footage and told police they went into the home without permission. Miller was sentenced to a suspended sentence of 89 to 90 days, meaning they will not serve jail time. Additionally, they were ordered to pay a $500 fine and will serve one year of probation.
Attorneys for the State of Vermont stated that this plea deal will allow Ezra Miller to continue their career and ongoing mental health treatment. Miller agreed to 41 conditions as part of the plea deal, including no drinking during probation and random testing for drugs and alcohol, as well as an agreement to continue seeking mental health treatment.
Miller’s attorney released a statement on their behalf, thanking the court and community for their trust and patience throughout the process, and acknowledging the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be a vital presence in their ongoing mental health.
