A legal expert believes that the new War The firing charges against Alec Baldwin have been “dismissed.”
Last week, a grand jury in New Mexico filed new charges of involuntary manslaughter against the 65-year-old actor-producer.
The incident took place when Alec was aiming a gun at cinematographer Halina Hutchins during a rehearsal for the shooting of the film in October 2021 and a bullet was fired, killing her and injuring director Joel Souza.
Recently a lawyer named Nema Rahmani told us weekly“I get a lot of questions about this case because the prosecution really screwed it up.”
Naima, who is not professionally involved in the case, explained: “They charged Alec Baldwin not only with involuntary manslaughter, which carries an 18-month sentence, but also with a five-year firearms enhancement giving Alec at least The minimum punishment could be five years.” If convicted he faces years in New Mexico state prison.
He further explained that the firearms enhancement was “retroactive”, meaning the statute did not exist at the time of Helena’s death, so using the statute to charge the actor was “unconstitutional”.
Alec has been ordered to appear before a judge in New Mexico to enter a plea on February 1.
