Poor Alec Baldwin. He just can’t catch a break. He shot and killed his Director of Photography and wounded someone else on his low-budget film set in New Mexico back in 2021. Prosecutors eventually charged him with serious crimes but then charges were dropped. He probably thought he was gonna skate away free as a bird. Eh, maybe not.
New Mexico prosecutors intend to recharge actor Alec Baldwin with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the fatal 2021 “Rust” shooting, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
One source added that Baldwin’s case will be brought before a grand jury in mid-November. There had been recent discussions of a plea deal to a petty misdemeanor that was rescinded over the weekend, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
One of the sources told NBC News that after further investigation, prosecutors no longer believe the gun had been modified and have found new evidence that they believe connects Baldwin to recklessness around safety standards on the set.
Yeah, let’s let the jury decide. It would a delightful cherry on top for this miserable human being to spend a few years in prison. He would definitely go on my special Christmas card list.
