Alec Baldwin Gets Huge Break In "Rust" Shooting Case

Actor Alec Baldwin got a significant legal win in the fatal movie-set shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The district attorney in New Mexico's Sante Fe County has dropped a "gun enhancement" charge against him.

Had Alec been convicted of that charge, it would have meant a minimum sentence of 5 years. He still faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, but it's possible he could avoid jail time altogether even if convicted. The maximum term would be 18 months in prison.

Earlier this month, Alec’s attorneys filed a motion calling the enhancement charge invalid,. They accused prosecutors of trying to charge Alec under a statute that was amended 7 months after the shooting. Since it wasn't in place when the shooting took place, Baldwin's legal team accused prosecutors of committing an "elementary legal error."
