Alec Baldwin Pleads Not Guilty To Fatal ‘Rust’ Shooting: Court Hearing Axed

Actor Alec Baldwin pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges in a New York court on Monday.

The charges stem from a fatal shooting that occurred on the set of his latest movie, “Rust”. Baldwin is accused of shooting the victim, identified as Huxley Hutchins, during a scene.

Baldwin’s lawyers argued that the shooting was accidental, and that the actor had no intention of killing Hutchins. The judge accepted the plea, setting conditions for Baldwin’s release that included abstaining from alcohol and giving up his firearms.

The first hearing in the criminal case was axed due to the ongoing pandemic. However, a new hearing date has been set for July 28th.

In the meantime, Baldwin is not allowed to leave the state without permission from the court. He is also required to wear an ankle monitor at all times.

The case has been closely followed by the media, and the public is eager to see how it plays out. Baldwin is a beloved actor with a long career, and the outcome of this case could have serious implications for his future.
