Ezra Miller is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge of trespassing in a Vermont burglary case, with two other charges against the actor being dropped.
The “Fantastic Beasts” and “The Flash” star has reportedly entered into a plea deal after being accused of stealing several alcoholic beverages from a neighbor’s pantry last May. Miller was charged with theft last August.
According to a police report, authorities discovered the bottles were missing from the homeowners’ residence. After collecting statements and reviewing surveillance footage, police found probable cause to charge Miller with felony theft.
Miller previously pleaded not guilty to the charges, appearing in court in October with their attorney present.
According to NBC News, a clerk at the Vermont Superior Court confirmed that the parties agreed to drop two charges, one of petty larceny and the other of burglary of a vacant home. Miller is expected to plead guilty to trespassing Friday in Bennington County Superior Criminal Court.
Court documents indicate that prosecutors are recommending that Miller face 89 to 90 days in a suspended sentence, in addition to a year of probation and a $500 fine. The maximum sentence was 26 years.
The Vermont charges are just one of a series of controversies and legal issues Miller has faced over the past year. The actor was arrested twice in Hawaii, first for disorderly conduct and harassment and then for second-degree assault. Miller has previously been accused of strangling a woman at a bar in Iceland.
Last August, Miller apologized for their behavior and said they would receive mental health treatment. The actor debuted as Barry Allen aka The Flash in 2017’s “Justice League.” Miller will star in the superhero’s first solo film, which hits theaters on June 23.
