Months after The Flash star Ezra Miller initially pleaded not guilty to a felony burglary charge in Vermont, the actor is now set to reach a new plea deal that will allow them to avoid spending time in jail according to a new report from VT Digger.
Ahead of their hearing this Friday in Bennington County Superior criminal court, the actor filed a document where they are now set to plead guilty to a single charge of unlawful trespass. As a result, they will receive a sentence of 89 to 90 days in jail, all suspended and will be placed on probation for a year along with a $500 fine.
According to a police affidavit filed in the case, Miller told the authorities that they were in the home to take cooking ingredients to their mother, who also lived nearby.
The actor claimed that the homeowner was a family friend who should have known what was going on since their mother asked for permission ahead of time. However, the homeowner denied providing permission for Miller to enter the residence according to their statement to the police.
Under the new plea deal that Miller filed, the two charges of a felony count of burglary into an occupied dwelling and a minor charge of petit larceny will now be dropped.
After multiple reports surfaced regarding his legal issues and allegations of his behavior, Miller released a statement back in August where they issued an apology and promised that they are going to seek mental health treatment.
"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," they said. I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life."
It is unknown yet whether this new development on Miller's recent legal issue will affect his status on the promotional campaign for The Flash, which is set to begin soon as they are going to release the first trailer during Super Bowl.
The Flash is slated for release in theaters on June 16. You can check more details about it here.
