In Vermont, Ezra Miller has pleaded not guilty to the felony burglary and small theft charges against him. Monday morning, the 30-year-old actor showed up via video in a Bennington courtroom for an arraignment about an incident in August, when they were accused of stealing alcohol from a man’s home in Stamford.
During the short hearing, Miller’s lawyer pleaded not guilty on their behalf to both a “felony count of burglary into an occupied dwelling” and a “minor charge of petit larceny,” according to the Bennington Banner. The judge set a few basic rules for the person’s release before the trial.
The Flash star can’t bother or bother Isaac B. Winokur, the owner of the house, and Miller can’t go on the property of the house they allegedly broke into while the case is going on. When the judge asked if they understood those conditions, Miller replied, “I do, your honour.”
In a press release from August, the Vermont State Police said they were told that Winokur’s Stamford home had been broken into and “several bottles of alcohol” were taken “while the homeowners were not there.” This happened on May 1 at 5:55 p.m. local time.
Police said they had “probable cause” to charge Miller with “felony burglary into an unoccupied dwelling” after looking at surveillance footage and taking statements.
Miller was found by the police on August 14 at 11:23 p.m., and he was told to go to Vermont Superior Court Bennington Criminal Division for a hearing.
Miller has been in the news more than once this year, including when he was arrested twice in Hawaii. After making a scene at a karaoke bar, the star was charged with disorderly conduct. He pleaded no contest to the charge.
In August, the actor from “Fantastic Beasts” released a statement in which they apologised for their recent bad behaviour and said they were getting help for mental health problems.
“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 in a statement at the time. “I want to apologise to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behaviour. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life.”
