Ezra Miller has reached a plea agreement in connection with their much-publicized Vermont case.
Per a report from Deadline, Miller—who was confirmed last October to have pleaded not guilty to burglary in the case—will now instead plead guilty to trespassing. In August, Miller was confirmed via their attorney to have accepted the court’s conditions of the original not guilty plea, including that they not make contact with the homeowners.
In an initial statement on the case, police in Vermont said that Miller had been charged with felony burglary after allegedly stealing “several bottles of alcohol” from a residence while the owners were not home.
While the maximum sentence in the case prior to the burglary count being dropped in the plea deal was reported to be as much as 26 years behind bars, the less serious guilty plea on the trespassing count (as seen in Dec. 30-dated court documents here via Deadline) carries with it a $500 fine and a $192 surcharge. Additionally, a one-year period of probation is mentioned in the docs, as is a total suspended sentence of 89-90 days.
Per online court listings, a hearing on the matter was slated for Friday. When reached for comment by Complex, attorney Lisa Shelkrot shared the following statement on Miller’s behalf:
“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.”
In August, Miller—whose Flash movie is set to be released in June—shared a statement in which they announced they were starting “ongoing treatment” following what they described as a period of “intense crisis” in terms of their mental health.
“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,” Miller said at the time. “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.”
