The first assistant director of Midnight Rider Hillary Schwartz will be sentenced Tuesday in a likely plea deal.
“Tomorrow morning at 10 o’clock we will dispose of her case,” Brunswick special assistant district attorney John Johnson tells The Hollywood Reporter. He would not confirm that the hearing would involve a plea deal.
Schwartz was the fourth defendant in the criminal case over the death of camera assistant Sarah Jones on the set of the Randall Miller film. She’s charged with involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespass.
The other three defendants — Miller, his producer and wife, Jody Savin, and executive producer Jay Sedrish — faced the same charges. In court Monday in Jesup, Georgia, Miller pled guilty in a deal that included the charges being dropped against Savin. His 10-year sentence comprised two years in jail, a $20,000 fine and 360 community service hours. Sedrish received 10 years’ probation and a $10,000 fine.
Until recently, Miller was part of their case, but hers was separated in February.
Her attorney, Austin Catts, did not immediately respond to THR‘s request for comment.
