Alec Baldwin Manslaughter Trial Date Set Amid New Evidence



Clear Facts

  • A New Mexico judge has scheduled the Alec Baldwin manslaughter trial for July 9, 2022, with the trial set to begin on July 10.
  • Baldwin, who pleaded not guilty in January, was indicted by a grand jury after a new analysis of the revolver he was using during the filming of the movie Rust.
  • Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the weapons supervisor and armorer on the set of Rust, has also been charged with involuntary manslaughter and one charge of tampering with evidence.

Nearly three years after the tragic incident on the set of the movie Rust, a date has been set for the Alec Baldwin manslaughter trial. The jury selection is scheduled for July 9 of this year, with the trial commencing the following day, according to a scheduling order by a New Mexico judge.

“The proceedings are expected to last eight days,” as reported by the New York Post.

Baldwin, who was the lead actor and a co-producer on the film, entered a not guilty plea in January. This plea came the day before his scheduled arraignment.

A grand jury indicted Baldwin after prosecutors received a new analysis of the revolver he was using during filming. This renewed a charge that prosecutors had originally filed and then dismissed in April 2023.

On October 21, 2021, while filming the western movie Rust, Baldwin shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during a rehearsal. Baldwin maintains that the revolver he had been given by the Assistant Director suddenly fired when he pulled back the hammer.

He emphatically stated that he did not pull the trigger.

However, an analysis of the firearm by the FBI concluded that “the trigger had to be pulled or depressed sufficiently to release the fully cocked or retracted hammer of the evidence revolver.”

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the weapons supervisor and armorer on the set of Rust at the time of the incident, has also been charged. She faces charges of involuntary manslaughter and one charge of tampering with evidence.

“Before Baldwin’s case progresses, the movie’s weapons supervisor is being tried on charges of involuntary manslaughter and tampering with evidence in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on Oct. 21, 2021, on a movie ranch outside Santa Fe,” Breitbart News reported.


Gutierrez-Reed has pleaded not guilty to the charges. She argues that she is not directly to blame for Hutchins’ death. In court filings, lead defense counsel Jason Bowles has pointed to findings by workplace safety regulators of broad problems that extended beyond the armorer’s control.

“Prosecutors plan to present evidence that Gutierrez-Reed unwittingly brought live ammunition onto a film set where it was expressly prohibited. They say the armorer missed multiple opportunities to ensure safety, eventually loading a live round into the gun that killed Hutchins.”

Clear Thoughts (op-ed)

The upcoming Alec Baldwin manslaughter trial is a stark reminder of the double standards that exist in Hollywood. With the trial set to begin on July 10th, it’s clear that the liberal elites will once again be put under the microscope.

But will justice truly be served?

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer on the set of Rust, also faces charges related to Hutchins’ tragic death. It’s important that we hold all individuals accountable for their actions, regardless of their political leanings or celebrity status.

As the trial approaches, we must not forget the victim, Halyna Hutchins, and the responsibility that those in positions of power have to ensure the safety of their colleagues. Hollywood’s negligence should never be excused or downplayed.

The outcome of this trial will send a message to the entertainment industry and beyond. Will we allow the liberal elite to continue evading responsibility, or will we demand justice for the innocent lives lost due to their carelessness? The choice is ours.
