Alec Baldwin faces charges again related to the accidental shooting during the filming of the western “Rust.”

At the age of 65, Alec Baldwin finds himself once again in the midst of a legal battle that could result in his imprisonment. The actor pleaded not guilty to new charges of involuntary manslaughter (negligent use of a firearm), stemming from the tragic shooting incident in 2021 on the set of the film “Rust.”

Baldwin, who was handling a prop gun on the “Rust” movie set, became the center of a fatal incident that claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, and director Joel Souza was injured. The incident sparked a widespread debate on safety protocols in film production and could potentially lead to Baldwin spending up to 18 months in prison if convicted.

The actor maintains that he was unaware the gun contained a live bullet and also claims he did not pull the trigger. Alec Baldwin was previously charged with involuntary manslaughter in January 2023, but the charges were dropped in April of the same year.
