Following New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies’ charging Alec Baldwin with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the death of DP Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust, the Oscar nominated actor has spoken out.
“This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win,” said Alec Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas of Quinn Emanuel.
