Miley Cryus' VMA Date Turns Self In


When Miley Cyrus let a young homeless man accept her award for Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards, she made headlines. This time, she was doing something kind but unfortunately that led to Oregon police releasing a warrant for the man’s arrest.
Jesse Helt, 22, pled guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass after getting caught breaking into the home of an Oregon man who he believed sold him bad pot. He was then sentenced to 30 days of jail and probation. The arrest warrant was issued after Helt violated his probation.
He moved to Los Angeles to try and build a modeling career but wound up living on the streets when he met Miley Cyrus at a youth homeless center in Hollywood. The group, called My Friends’ Place, has been helping and inspiring homeless youth to build self-sufficient lives for over 20 years. Helt accepted the award for Video of The Year on the behalf of the thousands of homeless youth in Hollywood.
“I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost, and scared for their lives right now,” Helt said. “I know this because I am one of these people.”
Helt turned himself in on Thursday night and then posted bail. According to a statement by Trevor Neilson, the president of G2 Investment Group and co-founder of Global Philanthropy Group, Cyrus will be paying for Helt’s court costs as well as helping him get his life together throughout the process.
Warm fuzzies everywhere.
