On January 31, 2023, New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies filed a statement of probable cause for involuntary manslaughter in the October 21, 2021 shooting death of Halyna Hutchins on the set of low-budget western movie “Rust.”
My own legal analysis of that event, beginning the day following the shooting, had 13 months prior to the probable cause statement concluded that a charge of involuntary manslaughter was overwhelmingly warranted by the facts and law in this case–so, it’s nice to see the New Mexico legal system begin to catch up. (You can find my aggregated coverage of Alec Baldwin’s shooting of Hutchins here: https://lawofselfdefense.com/baldwin)
In today’s live show I’ll provide a brief overview of my own legal analysis of the tragic death of Hutchins, and then read through the statement of probable cause, with commentary (naturally).
