Hollywood actor and obnoxious radical leftist Alec Baldwin is now no longer facing a potential five-year prison sentence after prosecutors in New Mexico decided to downgrade the charges against him last Friday. Unbelievable. It really is true. If you are rich and famous you can practically get away with anything. This man deserves that full five years in jail for his negligence which cost a woman her life.
“Court documents show Alec Baldwin and Rust armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed will only be charged with involuntary manslaughter without a firearm enhancement charge. The enhancement carried a maximum five-year prison sentence, according to multiple reports,” Breitbart News reported.

“Attorneys for both Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed had argued the firearm enhancement was based on a New Mexico law that only went into effect after the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021,” the report continued. “As a result, the Santa Fe District Attorney downgraded the charges against them.”
“In order to avoid further litigious distractions by Mr. Baldwin and his attorneys, the District Attorney and the special prosecutor have removed the firearm enhancement to the involuntary manslaughter charges in the death of Halyna Hutchins on the Rust film set,” Heather Brewer, spokesperson for the New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney, remarked in a statement that was obtained by multiple news outlets.
“The prosecution’s priority is securing justice, not securing billable hours for big-city attorneys,” Brewer continued.
Baldwin is still looking at a potential jail sentence of 18 months in prison if he is found guilty on charges of involuntary manslaughter. This is a righteous charge if you ask me. Baldwin should have checked the gun he was messing around with on set to ensure it was not loaded. He also should not have been pointing it at anyone or in the general vicinity where people were standing or congregating.
This man is a professional actor. How to handle a firearm on set should be second nature to him at this point in his career. And the armorer who was on set should have also been properly training those working with guns on set. There are so many things that could have been done that would have saved this woman’s life. It makes the heart sick to know that her husband and children are deprived of a person they loved more than life itself.
What made the situation even worse was how Baldwin attempted to paint himself up as a victim as time passed after the incident. He downplayed his role in pulling the trigger. He then tried to garner sympathy by talking about how much the incident haunts him. Well, it should haunt him. It’s his fault a woman is dead. His actions led directly to another human being’s end. That should sit with him for eternity. Especially because it could have been prevented.
“As Breitbart News reported, Baldwin’s attorneys recently filed a motion to remove special prosecutor Andrea Reeb, a Republican, from his case,” Breitbart News’ report concluded.
Hutchins’ family deserves some sort of justice and closure for what happened. Let’s hope they actually get it.
