Alec Baldwin May Face An Extra Five Years In Prison Due To A New Law In Rust Shooting Case

0 22

On October 21, 2021, on the set of the movie Rust at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico, cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot from a live round that ended up in a prop gun being used by lead actor Alec Baldwin. The investigation into Hutchins’ death concluded last month, and on January 31, Baldwin and Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed were officially charged with two counts of manslaughter. Now word’s come in that Baldwin may face an extra five years in prison due to a new law that’s been passed as this shooting case progresses.

In addition to the involuntary manslaughter charge against him, Alec Baldwin is now facing a “firearm enhancement” charge from New Mexico prosecutors, which carries with it a five-year penalty for “discharge of a firearm in the course of a felony,” as reported by Variety. However, the enhancement didn’t become incorporated into New Mexico law until May 2022, seven months after Halyna Hutchins was killed. As such, it’s unclear if a judge will allow this to be applied to Baldwin during the forthcoming trial.
