Hard to believe but after all the wild shit Ezra Miller has been accused of over the past two years, including but not limited to assault, harassment, grooming children, supplying a child with alcohol and LSD, brainwashing said child, disorderly conduct, sexual abuse, terrible performance art, improperly stored weapons, starting a cult, burglary, larceny and countless crimes against fashion, the only penalty Ezra has faced so far has been having to pay a $500 fine (plus $30 in court costs) after they pleaded “no contest” to the assault charge they picked up in Hawaii. But Deadline reports that Ezra can add a “not guilty” plea to their impressive criminal resume.
Ezra made the plea remotely as they appeared in Vermont Superior Court this morning to respond to charges of burglary and larceny after they were accused of breaking into a neighbor’s house and stealing alcohol. As part of the plea, Ezra is banned from contacting, harassing, or abusing the homeowner as well as the second Vermont resident. According to The Vermont Digger, at the time of the incident, Ezra told police they were just popping over “to pick up cooking ingredients, including vinegar and cooking wine, for Miller’s mother who also lived nearby,” but video surveillance suggests that the recipe was for Mama Miller’s Criminally Strong Long Island Tea. Deadline reports:
Allowed to appear remotely early Monday for the session in the criminal division of the Green Mountain State’s Superior Court, Miller was told to stay away from the neighbor whose home he entered earlier this year. Along with neighbor Isaac Winokur, Miller was also prohibited from interacting with another Vermont resident, Aiden Early, as conditions of their release (Read the conditions of release here).
Miller faces a maximum of 26 years behind bars as well as over $2,000 in fines if found guilty of the charges stemming from the spring incident which entailed stealing three bottles of liquor –gin, vodka and rum — from Winokur’s pantry. The next hearing in the case is set for January 13, 2023 and scheduled to last about three hours.
In a jovial and chipper mood Monday morning, the casually dressed actor will have to return to court per Superior Court Judge Kerry A. McDonald-Cady, virtually or in-person, at an determined future date for more proceedings in this matter. “Ezra would like to acknowledge the love and support they have received from their family and friends, who continue to be a vital presence in their ongoing mental health,” said in part a statement soon after today’s hearing from attorney Lisa B. Shelkrot.
These crimes might seem like small potatoes compared to the rest, but if Ezra ends up being convicted and sentenced to the max, Warner Bros. is going to be screwed. That would mean that Ezra will be in their 50s the next time they’re available to do any more reshoots for The Flash. I mean, we obviously don’t know what the technology will be like in the year 2048, but I imagine it will still cost quite a pretty penny to CGI out Ezra’s wrinkles and post-prison teeth. But gosh darn it, they’ll do it; because, as WB has proven, time and time again, their loyalty to Ezra knows no bounds.
