If convicted, Ezra Miller faces up to 26 years behind bars, along with $2,000 in fines. The Flash star was charged with burglary into an occupied home and petit larceny back in August.

For now, Ezra Miller has been ordered to stay away from the neighbor whose home they entered along with another resident of Vermont. Prior to the incident, Miller had been friends with the homeowner for about 18 years.
Ezra Miller is seeking treatment for mental health issues
Earlier this year, Ezra Miller released a statement adressing the troubling allegations made against them. “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. 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,” Miller said at the time.
Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.
In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
