Actor Alec Baldwin’s lawyer told a New Mexico inquest on Thursday that his client’s fault was removed in the case of the shooting death of a cinematographer on the set of “Rust.” The lawyer pointed out at trial that the actor believed there were no live rounds in his pistol.
On Wednesday, New Mexico’s Office of Occupational Health and Safety released the results of a six – month investigation into the October shootings. The report criticized the makers of the film “Rust” for the “deliberate” security holes that led to the murder of cinematographer Helena Hutchins, and the company was fined $ 137,000, the maximum fine.
In response to the findings, Baldwin’s lawyer said in a statement that his client’s authority over the product was limited to approving script changes and casting, and had no authority over matters under investigation.
“We applaud Mr Baldwin’s release for clarifying his belief that there was no gunfire,” the statement from Baldwin’s Instagram account said. “We’re pleased that the authorities in New Mexico have clarified these important points. Important.”
The product company was not immediately available for comment.
During the Hutchins rehearsal, a bullet from Baldwin’s pistol pierced his body and he was shot in the shoulder by film director Joel Sosa.
