Alec Baldwin charged with involuntary manslaughter!
More than a year after the tragic accident that claimed the life of DP Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust on October 21, 2021, the prosecutor in charge of the case in the state of New Mexico has made his decision and accuses the actor Alec Baldwin of involuntary manslaughter.

The incident occurred while the actor was rehearsing a scene with a gun during the filming of Rust on the site of Bonanza Creek Ranch located in New Mexico.

Since the incident, Baldwin claimed that he was not responsible for the director’s death. Instead, he accused Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the person in charge of the weapons and ammunition on the set at the time, of being solely responsible for the tragedy.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is also accused of manslaughter in the same case. David Halls, Rust’s assistant director, has decided to plead guilty to negligent use of a deadly weapon.

Recall that in October, Halyna Hutchins’ husband reached a settlement in his wrongful death lawsuit against Baldwin and the Rust producers. At the same time, Baldwin announced the resumption of filming of Rust for January 2023.

For the time being, Alec Baldwin remains free pending trial.
