Alec Baldwin’s conviction in the ‘Rust’ shooting was a ‘horrendous miscarriage of justice,’ his lawyer says.

Alec Baldwin’s lawyer criticized the New Mexico district attorney’s decision to charge the star with involuntary manslaughter for the fatal shooting of ‘Rust’ in 2021, calling it “a terrible failure of the trial.”

In a statement to Insider, attorney Luke Nikas of Quinn Emanuel said: “Mr. Baldwin has no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on it.” the movie set.”

Nikas added, “We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Santa Fe attorneys made the announcement Thursday Baldwin will face criminal charges for shooting Halyna Hutchins in 2021 on the set of the movie “Rust”.

The armorer of the film, Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, who was responsible for the weapons on the set of the film, is also expected to be charged with two counts of intentional homicide on the gun. The assistant director of the flick, Dave Halls, has signed a plea deal for the charge of reckless use of a dangerous weapon.
