Ezra Miller pleaded guilty to misdemeanor unlawful trespass Friday following a plea deal stemming from an incident where the actor was accused of stealing bottles of alcohol from a neighboring home in Vermont.
Miller was previously being charged with both burglary into an occupied home and petit larceny, and faced a maximum of 25 years in prison and a $1,000 maximum fine if convicted of the felony. However, as part of the plea deal, those charges were dropped and replaced by a new charge of misdemeanor unlawful trepass.
Prosecutors requested that Miller face 89 to 90 days in a suspended sentence, according to court documents, as well as a $500 fine and one-year probation, which was ultimately the sentence handed down by the judge. However, the judge mandated other guidelines that Miller must follow, including no drinking during probation, random drug testing, as a continuation of his mental health treatment.
“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,” Miller’s attorney said in a statement Friday.
Miller was arrested twice last year in Hawaii, including for disorderly conduct and harassment at a karaoke bar. His farm also drew the attention of Vermont’s child services over concerns for the safety of a young mother and her three children, who were housed at the residence.
Last summer, two temporary restraining orders were issued from the parents of 18-year-old Native American activist Tokata Iron Eyes and an unnamed 12-year-old child in Massachusetts. Both instances stemmed from alleged inappropriate behavior.
This story was updated Jan. 13 with Miller’s guilty plea.
