Ezra Miller Pleaded Not Guilty to Theft Charges: Ezra Miller, star of The Flash, has entered a plea of not guilty to felony burglary charges. If found guilty, he could receive a maximum term of 26 years in prison and more than $2,000 in fines.
According to Deadline, Miller was charged in Vermont and appeared virtually before the criminal division of the Superior Court of the Green Mountain State on October 17. The accusations originate from an event that happened in Vermont on August 7 where Miller is accused of stealing three bottles of alcohol from a home’s pantry.
The house belonged to Miller’s boyhood friend, and the actor thought they got in because they were cooking with their mother and wanted some rice wine, according to Miller’s representative. Miller “did not comprehend the friend didn’t want to be friends anymore,” the spokesman added.
Miller was warned to avoid the home’s owner and another Vermont resident in court on Monday. The case’s subsequent hearing is scheduled for January 13, 2023. According to Miller’s attorney Lisa B. Shelkrot, “Ezra would like to recognize the love and support they have gotten from their family and friends, who continue to be a critical presence in their ongoing mental health.”
Miller has recently encountered legal issues, and this incident joins those in North Dakota, Massachusetts, and Hawaii. These accusations include grooming children, hurling a chair at a woman, grabbing a woman by the throat, and manipulating, intimidating, and endangering individuals.
There were rumors that DC wasn’t going to give Miller the Flash part in upcoming DC movies, but according to a different story, they have returned to the set for The Flash reshoots after making amends for their recent actions.
After going through a recent period of extreme distress, Miller remarked, “I now realize that I am dealing with serious mental health difficulties and have started receiving continuing treatment.” “I want to apologize to everyone that my previous actions may have shocked or disturbed me. I’m determined to put in the effort required to return to a stage of my life that is safe, secure, and productive.”

One further rumor claims that a sequel to The Flash has already had its script prepared. While this doesn’t guarantee Miller will return, it does indicate that DC is busily preparing for the future of the much-loved character.
