The director of a movie about musician Gregg Allman has pleaded guilty in a train crash that killed a camera assistant and injured six film workers.
Director Randall Miller pleaded guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing as part of a plea deal.
Under the deal, he will spend two years in the county jail and another eight on probation, and pay a $20,000 fine.
Also, prosecutors agreed to drop charges against his wife and business partner, Jody Savin.
It wasn’t clear what would happen to charges against a third defendant, executive producer Jay Sedrish. He previously pleaded not guilty, as Miller and Savin had. He faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted.
In the crash a year ago, a freight train traveling 55 mph plowed into the director’s crew on a Georgia railroad bridge.
