The gun owner who was responsible for the gun that killed Hutchins will also be charged, the New Mexico District Attorney for the First Judicial District said.

If convicted, they face up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.

“After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the cast of Rust,” Carmack-Altweiss said.

“During my mandate, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice,” the prosecutor emphasized.

In October 2021, Baldwin was holding a Colt pistol while rehearsing for the movie Rust in New Mexico when a real bullet was fired from it, hitting Hutchins and killing her. As Baldwin explained, he was told there were no live rounds in the gun and was instructed to point the gun at Hutchins as the camerawoman prepared to shoot the scene.
