THR reports the director and producers of the now defunct Midnight Rider bio pic, has turned themselves in to Wayne County police following charges of involuntary manslaughter in the death of camera woman Sarah Jones.
I've written about the tragic death of Sarah Jones as well as the lawsuits that followed. But on July 3rd a grand jury chose to indite three crew members further sealing the fate of the Greg Alman movie. From the article:
"Both [Director Randy] Miller and [Producer Jody] Savin have since made bail and were released, a spokesperson for the Wayne County jail tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Executive producer Jay Sedrish was also charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing.
Involuntary manslaughter carries a potential sentence of 10 years in prison under Georgia law. Criminal trespass is a misdemeanor and carries a potential sentence of 12 months. Miller and Savin own the production company behind the film, Unclaimed Freight."
