Midnight Rider Director Randall Miller Released From Jail After Serving Half of His Sentence

Miller was granted early release on Wednesday following just over a year behind bars in Wayne County, Georgia, Variety reports. The director reportedly took a plea deal last year, which required he plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing in connection with the on-set death of camera assistant Sarah Jones, 27, and injury of eight others. Although the deal originally mandated Miller spend two years in custody, a judge adjusted the sentence »

Midnight Rider director Randall Miller is being released from a Georgia jail on Wednesday after completing just over half of a two-year plea bargain for his role in the death of 27-year-old camera operator Sarah Jones. A judge found that a pre-existing deal, known as a “two for one,” between Miller’s lawyers and the District Attorney’s office was binding. Miller plead guilty to criminal trespassing and involuntary manslaughter last year and began serving his sentence that March. His attorneys tried to have Miller released over the holidays last December and once more earlier this month.

Bar None: Van Groeningen Returns to Musical Inclinations for Vibrant Sibling Portrait

Belgian auteur Felix Van Groeningen, the front runner of the Belgian New Wave, returns with his fifth feature, Belgica, a portrait of two estranged brothers reuniting to open a successful night club, an experience forcing them to reexamine both their shortcomings and sometimes toxic enabling of each other’s worst tendencies. The film follows a career high for Van Groeningen, who scored an international breakout with 2013’s The Broken Circle Breakdown, another musically inclined drama which netted him an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Language Film. Though his latest still includes unpredictable emotional highs and lows within a familiar set of family and friends, his latest is more sobering by comparison. With a killer soundtrack this is a well-proportioned character piece for its two leads, requiring a bit of patience for the film’s rather lofty running time »

‘Midnight Rider’ Filmmaker Denied Early Release From Jail

20 January 2016 5:23 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A judge in Wayne County, Ga., has denied “Midnight Rider” director Randall Miller’s effort to modify his sentence and get released from jail early.

Miller was sentenced in March to two years in Wayne County Jail after pleading guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass stemming from the Feb. 20, 2014, train accident on the set of “Midnight Rider.” Camera assistant Sarah Jones was killed and eight others were injured.

Through his attorneys, Miller had sought early release, citing declining health and good behavior while serving his sentence. His motion was opposed by prosecutors and Jones’ family.

Miller may still be eligible for release after serving one year of his sentence. His attorneys have said that all parties reached a plea agreement with the understanding that the sheriff of Wayne County could apply a “good time credit.”

Deadline first reported the news of Judge Anthony Harrison’s decision.
