Ezra Miller Pleads Not Guilty to Felony Burglary Charge, Faces Up to 26 Years in Prison

Must read

The Flash star Ezra Miller has pleaded not guilty to felony burglary charges, and if they are convicted, they face a maximum prison sentence of 26 years and over $2,000 in fines.

As reported by Deadline, Miller was charged in Vermont and appeared remotely on October 17 for a session in the criminal division of the Green Mountain State's Superior Court. The charges stem from an incident that occurred on August 7 in Vermont where Miller allegedly stole three bottles of liquor from the pantry of a private home.

According to Miller's representative, the home was of Miller's childhood friend, and the actor believed they were able to enter the home to obtain some rice wine as they were cooking with their mother. The rep also said Miller "did not realize the friend didn't want to be friends anymore."

At court on Monday, Miller was told to stay away from the owner of the home as well as another Vermont resident. The next hearing for this case will be on January 13, 2023.

“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,” said Miller's attorney Lisa B. Shelkrot.

This was just one example of Miller's recent legal troubles, and it joins incidents in Hawaii, Massachusetts, and North Dakota. These allegations include manipulating, intimidating, and endangering people, disorderly conduct, throwing a chair at a woman, grabbing a woman by the throat, grooming minors, and more.

There were reports that DC wasn't likely to keep Miller the Flash role in future DC films, but another report claims they have been back on set for The Flash reshoots following an apology for their recent behavior.

“Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” said Miller. “I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

One last report says a sequel to The Flash has already had its script written, and while that doesn't necessarily mean Miller will be back again, DC is busy planning the beloved character's future.

The Flash is set to be released in theaters on June 23, 2023.
