Actor Ezra Miller has entered a not guilty plea to the felony burglary charge levelled against them at Bennington Supreme Court in Stamford, Vermont. If found guilty, they could face up to 26 years in prison, and about $2000 in fines.
The star of The Flash has been in the news recently for many reasons; from supposedly terrorizing a community in Hawaii, purpotedly holding a young mother and child hostage, to now being charged with a felony burglary on account of allegedly going into the occupied home of his neighbor Isaac Wilkour and stealing three bottles of alcohol from the pantry. The crime was caught on video surveillance and the felony burglary charge is also accompanied with a petit larceny charge.
Ezra Miller appeared in court virtually on Monday the 17th in the hearing presided over by Judge Kerry Ann McDonald-Cady. In said hearing, Ezra addressed the charges against them through their lawyer Lisa B, Shelkrot for the incident which occured on the 1st of May, 2022. The matter was first presented on the 7th of August by Ezra’s lawyer who also pleaded not guilty on their behalf.
In a statement on Miller’s behalf, Shelkrot said “Ezra Miller this morning pled not guilty to one count of burglary and one count of petit larceny in Vermont Superior Court and accepted the court-imposed conditions of not contacting or entering the home of the inhabitants. Ezra would like to acknowledge the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be a vital presence in their ongoing mental health.”
This plea is the latest incident in the series of ongoing and mental health and legal struggles this past year. After a couple of months of being in the headlines, Miller has apologized for their mistakes and sought help. They were also recently spotted at Warner Bros for The Flash reshoots.
