Update 01/13/2023: The Flash star Ezra Miller has pleaded guilty to illegal home invasion in a plea deal that allows them to avoid jail time.
As reported by News10ABC (and seen by Variety), Miller will pay a $500 fine and faces one year of probation with 41 conditions including no drinking, random drug testing and continued mental health treatment.
The trespassing charge is a significant reduction from the initial charges Miller faced, which included several more serious charges of burglary, which on conviction could face up to 25 years in prison.
Original story 01/12/2023: DC and The Flash star Ezra Miller is reportedly expected to plead guilty to one count of illegal trespassing in the Vermont burglary case.
Miller was charged with stealing three bottles of alcohol from someone’s home but, as reported by NBCthe other two counts of burglary and one count of petty theft will be dropped after negotiations between the two parties.
Miller is expected to plead guilty on January 13, with court documents showing prosecutors propose they face 89 to 90 days of probation, one year of probation and a $500 fine.
The actor pleaded not guilty to the more serious burglary charges in October, the 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 himself in, joining other examples in Hawaii, Massachusetts and North Dakota.
However, Miller apologized for their behavior in August last year, saying they were suffering from “complex mental health issues” and had started treatment. “I want to apologize to everyone I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the work necessary to return to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life,” they said at the time.
The Flash movie was put in jeopardy as a result of the legal issue, but DC now seems to be moving forward with Miller in the role.
