Ezra Miller pleads not guilty to burglary charges in Vermont | Criminal law

‘The Flash’ actor Ezra Miller pleaded not guilty on Monday to burglary charges in connection with an alleged home invasion in Vermont in which they are accused of stealing alcohol, according to the official Bennington Criminal Court Operations, Wendy Dickie.

Miller, who is non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them, appeared virtually in court with their attorney, Lisa Shelkrot. They face a felony charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling and a misdemeanor charge of petty larceny, Dickie said.

CNN reached out to Shelkrot for comment on the matter.

Miller is accused of trespassing at a neighbor’s home in Stamford, Vermont on May 1 and stealing liquor bottles while the neighbor was not home, a police affidavit says .

The actor is next due in court on January 13, according to court documents.

Miller stars in an upcoming movie “The Flash,” which is a DC Films production. DC Films is owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, which is also the parent company of CNN.

Monday’s arraignment comes after Miller announced he was seeking mental health treatment in August.

“Having recently gone through a period of intense crisis, I now understand that I suffer from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment,” Miller said in a statement at the time. “I want to apologize to anyone I have alarmed and upset about my past behavior.”

The actor added, “I am committed to doing the work necessary to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”

Miller’s statement followed a series of legal issues.

In March, Miller was arrested in Hilo, Hawaii, and charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after an incident at a bar, according to the Hawaii County Police Department.

Miller posted $500 bail and was released, according to local police.

On April 19, the actor did not contest and was fined $500 for the disorderly conduct charge, according to a court filing, and the harassment charge was dismissed.

Earlier in the day, Miller was arrested for second-degree assault following an incident at a private residence in the Puna District near the town of Pāhoa, according to the Hawaii Police Department. No charges have been laid in relation to this incident.
