Ezra Miller Found Not Complicious of Disorderly Conduct

Ezra Miller pleads not guilty to burglary charges in Vermont case

Rutland, Vt. — On Thursday, September 19, the Rutland resident was found guilty of disorderly conduct by a jury in Rutland District Court. They found Ezra Miller guilty on two counts of entering without permission into a dwelling, or dwelling in a building, contrary to Vermont’s burglary statute. The statute states, “A person is guilty of burglary if he enters a building or occupied structure with intent to commit a crime or a forcible entry into another’s dwelling with intent to commit a crime.” According to the Vermont Attorney General’s Office the prosecutor argued that the statute should be considered similar to the Illinois burglary statute where the “intent to commit a crime” is a lesser included crime with “the intent to commit larceny or a felony punishable by more than one year’s imprisonment.” The verdict sheet shows each juror wrote his or her initials on the verdict form, which says, in part, “We the jury find accused not guilty of second degree burglary of dwelling.” The verdict sheet also shows the charge of burglary and the charge of disorderly conduct were both first degree charges. It does not show whether the jury convicted Miller of first or second degree. Miller is scheduled for sentencing on October 13, 2016. Miller’s attorney James Campbell could not be reached for comment. Miller was charged with a felony at the time of his arrest last summer. According to a police affidavit, Miller allegedly broke into a friend’s apartment on May 30th, 2015. The affidavit does not indicate if Miller lived in the apartment at the time or had permission to be on the premises. Miller told police he walked into the apartment where he was sitting on the couch trying to get to the kitchen to get a drink of water. Once Miller got to the kitchen the kitchen door is said to have locked behind him, he forced it open. He broke into the apartment and came out holding a kitchen knife
