Hannah Gutierrez-Reed

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was guilty of two counts of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, 42, on the New Mexico set of the film set of the movie 'Rust' during a rehearsal on October 21, 2021. She was also charged with tampering with evidence in that she did transfer narcotics to another person with the intent to prevent the apprehension, prosecution or conviction of herself. Director Joel Souza was also injured in the incident. Six live rounds were ultimately discovered, some in a box of supposed dummy ammunition brought on set by Gutierrez, in the gun belt worn by actor Jensen Ackles and the bandolier worn by Alec Baldwin. Prosecutors plan to use cell phone data, witness testimony and Gutierrez's police interview to show how the defendant's illegal drug and alcohol use contributed to her negligence and recklessness while working on the film set. However, no drug or sobriety tests were conducted in the immediate aftermath of the fatal shooting. 'Rust' safety coordinator and assistant director David Halls pleaded no contest to a charge of unsafe handling of a firearm and received a suspended sentence of six months probation. Actor Alec Baldwin has pleaded not guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge and faces up to 18 months in prison if convicted.
