According to Fox News opinion writer Gregg Jarrett, actor Alec Baldwin could be charged with negligent manslaughter after he shot and killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico film set of “Rust.”
The comments from Jarrett came during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“He could be charged with criminally negligent homicide involuntary manslaughter which is grossly negligent and reckless conduct,” Jarrett asserted. The failure to exercise due care to protect the crew.”
“But even if someone says, ‘this is a cold gun. It’s safe’,” Hannity chimed in, playing the devils advocate.
“That doesn’t matter because as Brian points out the safety protocols were violated here,” Jarret said.
