Helt pleaded guilty to the charges of criminal mischief and criminal trespass (both misdemeanors). He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, probation and drug treatment.
An arrest warrant was issued for Helt in November 2011 after he violated his probation by “repeatedly failing” to check in with his probation officer.
Helt didn’t appear to hide the fact that he had a criminal record — he made the mugshot from his May 2011 arrest his profile image on Facebook in November 2013.
Helt also posted about his recreational marijuana use, despite the fact that Oregon’s conditions for probation mandate sobriety.
Cyrus tweeted her support for Helt soon after news of his outstanding warrant was released.
