Alec Baldwin shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of “Rust” in October 2021. He claimed that he pulled back the hammer but didn’t pull the trigger on the Colt .45 revolver.
According to the FBI experts who examined the gun, the gun won’t fire without pulling the trigger. That statement gives him the appearance that he’s hiding something from investigators.
If he had admitted to pulling the trigger, he could have avoided involuntary manslaughter charges. I doubt the jury will find him innocent of the charges. They will have to decide if he gets 18 months in jail and a $5,000 fine, and/or a mandatory five years in prison.
