Alec Baldwin and the armorer on the set of “Rust” will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021.

Baldwin and Gutierrez Reed each face two counts of involuntary manslaughter, which each carry a maximum sentence of 18 months in jail. They also will be charged with an enhancement for use of a firearm which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of five years.

“If any one of these three people — Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed or David Halls — had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today,” said Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor appointed by Carmack-Altwies to oversee the case, in a statement. “It’s that simple. The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

The prosecutor’s office opted not to file charges against Sarah Zachry, the propmaster who worked closely with Gutierrez Reed, or Seth Kenney, the weapons supplier. Both have been named as defendants in several civil suits.

 

Ultimately, I believe Baldwin is responsible  because he was the executive producer, and gun safety was effectively his responsibility.  Not just when he had the gun in hand but in hiring and overseeing a propmaster, armorer, and crew that mishandled the gun and live ammo that made this accident possible.

He’s gonna spend a lot of money on his legal defense.

Speaking of, per the civil suit, if counsel needs a firearms expert for the defense of the gun manufacturer, go ahead and send me an email.  My consulting services are available.

  1. If I understand NM law correctly, and IANAL warning is in full effect here, so I likely do not, they have no choice but to file charges. Does not matter. A person ended up dead or grievously wounded when a gun was discharged, and it was not a self defense situation.

    Now, going to trial, totally different situation.
    .
    Still amazed that this happened to a Baldwin brother. Their father was the shooting club coach in my HS. I find it difficult to believe he never taught his sons the four laws.

  2. Until the prison doors slam shut behind that piece of shit, I’m going on the assumption that it is another Dog&Pony show, to cover a libtards ass and make it look good, but nothing done.
