Alec Baldwin Faces Potential Manslaughter Charges, Prosecutors Hint

Published

Clear Facts:

  • Special prosecutors have hinted at the possibility of reintroducing manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin in the “Rust” shooting.
  • A recent forensics report challenges Baldwin’s assertion that he did not pull the trigger, leading to Halyna Hutchins’ death.
  • While Baldwin tries to halt civil cases against him, the broader Rust criminal trial has been postponed to February 2024.

The fatal shooting incident on the set of the movie “Rust” involving Alec Baldwin has taken yet another twist.

As the actor tries to halt civil cases filed against him by the crew members of the indie Western, prosecutors have subtly hinted that Baldwin might still face manslaughter charges.

Special prosecutors Kari Morrissey and Jason Lewis, though initially dropping involuntary manslaughter claims against Baldwin this spring, have retained the option of reintroducing him to the criminal case, should new evidence justify it.

Recent forensics findings, made public last week, seem to challenge Baldwin’s claims.

The actor has consistently stated he did not pull the trigger of the prop gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

However, a detailed forensics report suggests otherwise.

The report, conducted by weapons examiners Lucien Haag and Michael Haag, mentions, “Although Alec Baldwin repeatedly denies pulling the trigger, given the tests, findings and observations reported here, the trigger had to be pulled or depressed sufficiently to release the fully cocked or retracted hammer of the evidence revolver.”

This potentially critical evidence has revitalized discussions on Baldwin’s responsibility in the incident.

Amidst this backdrop, Baldwin and El Dorado Pictures have filed a motion to dismiss a civil case from February, brought forth by Rust crew members Ross Addiego, Doran Curtin, and Reese Price.

They accuse Baldwin and the movie’s producers of “negligent and reckless conduct”.

The New Mexico’s First Judicial District Court will convene on Wednesday to deliberate on these motions.

The broader Rust criminal trial, initially scheduled for the end of this year, has now been postponed to February 21, 2024.

Reasons cited include “scheduling issues” related to witnesses.

It remains to be seen how these developments will influence Baldwin’s legal trajectory.

    Data from all sources indicate Baldwin is totally gun ignorant. The FIRST statement on gun safety issued by the NRA is “Always be sure the gun is pointed in a safe direction.” The SECOND statement is like unto the first, “Always assume the gun is loaded.” Baldwin Failed both edicts. Baldwin should have already been charged with negligent homicide. New Mexico’s AG (or lower level prosecutor} failed to do his/her job.

    He killed one person and injured another. That says he goes to jail. He was NOT being threatened. If he had been, I say fine. But he wasn’t. Anyone using firearms around others should know exactly what type of ammo is in your weapon. Period!!
    Triggers don’t pull themselves!

    So WHO pulled the trigger? Hmmmmm, a good guess would be the serial liar that was holding, pointing the gun. Mr. anti-2A, himself.

    “Your Honor, the evidence will show….”
    That is the PROPER way to approach this situation. The prop/weapon has now been THOROUGHLY examined, tested, and proven – as to EXACTLY what the capabilities of THAT gun genuinely are. Mr. Baldwin, as the person sho was HOLDING IT when it fired, was then AND REMAINS NOW the primary person responsible for what occurred, in his hand(s.) He is the LAST person to touch it, and therefore to EXAMINE it, prior to the shooting of that movie scene. Anyone handling a weapon is the primary one responsible for what occurs through the time of it being handled. Mr. Baldwin’s hatred for people using weapons RESPONSIBLY has apparently brought his mindset to DISMISS any responsibilities of others who may be in contact with a weapon. Such is an extremely naive view to hold; as it is counter to all realistic logic.

    Unlike what was a common excuse in the “Old TV shows and Detective stories”; guns don’t just Go Off. He may not have been aware of his actions but he is responsible for them none-the-less.

    She should go to jail. People need to get educated and quit acting so foolishly. May truth and justice prevail.

    You learn one major thing in dealing with a gun you never under any circumstances aim a gun loaded or unloaded or point it at someone even in the movies and you certainly don’t say what he said just before he pulled that trigger…” is this what you want “..his comment to the dead woman is conveniently left out of most news reports

    In our old Justice System, pre Biden, he was tried and found not guilty. So to bring it back to trial is double jeopardy, you are trying him for the same thing twice. Not Allowed. But in the Biden Justice System there IS NO JUSTICE unless it agrees with the Biden Liberal persuasions, whereby there was no crime to begin with.
    There Is No Justice System, via the Constitution, in this 3rd rate Banana Regime any more because there is No Free State any more. We are now living in the beginning stages of the Communist/Socialist/Dictator Regime with Biden at its head.
