Ezra Miller pleads guilty to unlawful trespassing in Vermont

Actor will be subject to a $500 fine and a year of probation for breaking into a neighbor’s home and stealing liquor

The actor Ezra Miller has pleaded guilty to unlawful trespassing in Vermont after being charged with stealing liquor from a neighbor’s home in May.

Miller, who appeared in several Justice League films and stars in the upcoming feature The Flash, agreed that by entering the plea and abiding by the conditions, they would avoid a three-month jail sentence and be subject instead to a $500 fine and a court fee, a year of probation and conditions including continued mental health treatment.

During a plea deal accepted on Friday, a Vermont judge accepted Miller’s admission of the unlawful trespassing charge, a misdemeanor, the entertainment news site Deadline reported.

Other charges associated with the incident would be dismissed without prejudice, but a burglary charge could be re-filed if Miller violated the terms of their probation, the court heard.

Miller can also count time spent in treatment towards the probation period, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Miller was originally charged with three counts of burglary, trespassing and petit larceny for the May incident after they broke into the pantry of their neighbor, Isaac Winokur, and stole several bottles of liquor.

During the nearly 30-minute hearing in Bennington, Miller answered superior court judge Kerry Ann McDonald-Cady’s questions but declined to make a statement.

However, after the hearing Miller’s attorney, Lisa Shelkrot, sent a statement on the actor’s behalf.

“Ezra would like to thank the court and the community for their trust and patience throughout this process, and would once again 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,” the statement said.

The May incident is one of several arrests involving the 30-year-old actor.

The actor has been accused of choking a woman in Iceland and arrested twice in Hawaii, once for disorderly contact and harassment and again for second-degree assault, reported Variety.

Miller also has several protective orders filed against them by parents accusing the actor of inappropriate conduct involving children, reported Insider.
