The Flash Star Ezra Miller Pleads Guilty to Trespassing Charge, Avoiding Jail Time

Must read

Update 01/13/2023: The Flash star Ezra Miller has pleaded guilty to unlawful trespassing in a plea deal that sees them avoid jail time.

As reported by News10 ABC (and spotted by Variety), Miller will instead pay a $500 fine and faces one year of probation with 41 conditions including no drinking, random drug tests, and a continuation of their mental health treatment.

The trespassing charge is a significant reduction from the initial charges Miller faced that included several more serious felony burglary charges, the conviction of which would see them face up to 25 years in prison.

Update 01/13/2023 12:06 pm PT: Ezra Miller's attorney Lisa Shelkrot has provided a statement on behalf of the actor following the plea in court. The full statement can be read below.

“Ezra Miller pled guilty this morning to a misdemeanor unlawful trespass in Vermont Superior Court and accepted the conditions imposed by the court. 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.”


Original Story 01/12/2023: DC and The Flash star Ezra Miller is reportedly expected to plead guilty to an unlawful trespassing charge in the Vermont burglary case.

Miller was accused of stealing three bottles of alcohol from someone's home but, as reported by NBC, the other two charges of burglary and a petit larceny charge will be dropped following negotiations by the two parties.

Miller is expected to plead guilty on January 13, with court documents showing that prosecutors propose they face 89 to 90 days in a suspended sentence, one year's probation, and a $500 fine.

The actor pleaded not guilty to the more serious felony burglary charges in October, conviction of which would see Miller face a maximum prison sentence of 25 years.

The Vermont incident is just one of several recent cases of legal trouble Miller has found themselves in, joining other examples in Hawaii, Massachusetts, and North Dakota.

Miller apologised for their behaviour in August last year, however, saying they were suffering from "complex mental health issues" and had begun treatment. "I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life," they said at the time.

The Flash film was put in jeopardy as a result of the legal trouble but DC now appears to be moving forward with Miller in the role.
