Miley Cyrus's Homeless Pal Is Headed To Prison
Miley Cyrus's statement-making MTV VMA date has been sentenced to six months in jail.
In August this year Miley made headlines when she invited Jesse Helt to accept her Video of the Year Award for "Wrecking Ball". Helt was representing LA's homeless youth and delivered a powerful speech as Miley cried in the audience.
But afterwards it was revealed Helt wasn't quite as innocent as it sounded - in fact there was a warrant out for his arrest. He was wanted for trespassing, criminal mischief and violating the terms of his probation.
Helt was arrested in 2010 on misdemeanour charges. The next year, he failed to meet with his probation officer or complete community service because he’d moved to Los Angeles. He sought modelling work and was homeless from time to time.
In a sad turn of events, it's been suggested that his appearance at the ceremony brought the probation violation to light. It was confirmed today that he was heading to prison for six months.
