Alec Baldwin Receives New Indictment For Involuntary Manslaughter

( – Alec Baldwin finds himself once again in legal crosshairs as prosecutors bring forth renewed charges of involuntary manslaughter. The indictment stems from a grand jury decision in the aftermath of the tragic shooting incident involving cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust” in 2021. Documents obtained by Fox News Digital reveal the charges brought against Baldwin, including involuntary manslaughter, negligent use of a firearm, or, alternatively, involuntary manslaughter without due caution.

Legal representatives for Baldwin, namely Alex Spiro and Luke Nikas, expressed their anticipation for the impending court proceedings. However, as the legal drama unfolds, Fox News Digital reached out to prosecutors for additional comments on this latest development.

Gloria Allred, the lawyer representing the Hutchins family, conveyed their ongoing quest for truth surrounding the circumstances of Halyna Hutchins’ tragic demise on October 21, 2021. Allred emphasized the family’s commitment to seeking accountability not only through a civil lawsuit but also within the realm of the criminal justice system.

The grand jury’s decision to indict Baldwin on involuntary manslaughter charges marks a significant development in the case. The statement released asserts that there is deemed to be sufficient evidence warranting a trial to determine Baldwin’s culpability in the untimely death of Halyna Hutchins. The statement also highlighted Halyna’s familial connections, being the daughter of Olga Solovey and Anatolii Androsovych, the sister of Svetlana Zemko, and a co-worker of Mamie Mitchell.

Notably, this is not the first legal episode for Baldwin in connection to this incident. Originally charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter on January 31, those charges were subsequently dropped in April, citing the emergence of new facts requiring further investigation. Special prosecutors Kari Morrissey and Jason Lewis, who have been spearheading the investigation, revealed their intention to present the case once again to a grand jury. This decision comes almost two years after the tragic incident and is based on the discovery of additional facts pointing to Baldwin’s criminal culpability.

Baldwin has consistently maintained his innocence, asserting that he did not pull the trigger of the gun that led to Hutchins’ death. In an interview with George Stephanopoulos shortly after the fatal incident, Baldwin emphatically stated, “The trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger. No, no, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger. Never.”

However, the complexity of the case deepened with the FBI’s accidental discharge test, which concluded that the gun used in the fatal shooting “could not be made to fire without a pull of the trigger.” This revelation challenges Baldwin’s narrative and adds a layer of intricacy to the legal proceedings.

Recent developments also include the emergence of new footage obtained by NBC News, showing Baldwin firing a prop gun on the film set. In the video, Baldwin can be heard instructing crew members to move out of the gun’s path, expressing concern for their safety. The footage, dated November 16, was reportedly taken some time before the tragic incident on October 21, 2021.

As the legal saga continues, Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria, was spotted exiting their New York City apartment alone hours after news of the new indictment broke. The upcoming criminal trial will undoubtedly be a focal point in determining the legal consequences for Alec Baldwin in connection with the untimely death of Halyna Hutchins.
