This was announced by the authority on Thursday after more than a year of investigations. Specifically, Baldwin is accused of negligent homicide after the death of camerawoman Halyna Hutchins. Armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is also on trial for the crime.
“After extensively studying the evidence and the law in the state of New Mexico, I have concluded that there is sufficient evidence to charge Alec Baldwin and another crew member of the film ‘Rust’,” said Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies above the law.” In New Mexico, involuntary manslaughter carries a penalty of up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
Gun loaded with real bullet instead of prop bullet
Baldwin accidentally shot and killed 42-year-old cinematographer Hutchins with a prop gun while filming the western Rust in October 2021. Director Joel Souza was hit in the shoulder by the projectile and injured in the incident. The revolver had been loaded with a real bullet instead of a prop one. In 2022, Baldwin, as the lead actor and producer of the Western, finally reached an out-of-court settlement in a civil suit with the widower of the dead Hutchins. “We all believe that Halyna’s death was a terrible accident,” the widower said at the time.
