Sedrish also was charged with criminal trespass in the camera assistant's death

Midnight Rider executive producer and production manager Jay Sedrish has waived his right for an arraignment and asked the court to enter a not guilty plea to criminal charges in the death of camera assistant Sarah Jones.

Sedrish, director Randall Miller and producer Jody Savin were charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass in Jones' death.

Jones was struck and killed by a train in February on the Georgia set of the Gregg Allman biopic.

Sedrish's lawyer, John Ossick, confirmed that Sedrish waived his right for an arraignment and asked the court to enter a not guilty plea by mail.

Miller and Savin pleaded not guilty last month, claiming Jones' death "was not a crime." Sedrish also turned himself in to the police last month.
