Charges against Alec Baldwin dropped?

| April 21, 2023

The special prosecutors assigned to the involuntary manslaughter charge case involving Alec Baldwin are expected to file to have the charges dismissed without prejudice. Alec Baldwin’s lawyers are happy about the decision and wish for a proper investigation to be conducted.

From the Post Millennial:

Sources told Deadline that special prosecutors Kari Morrissey and Jason Lewis, who were recently appointed to the case, are expected to file paperwork soon to dismiss the charges without prejudice. This means that while the charges are dropped for now, the case could be reopened in the future as the investigation continues.

Baldwin’s legal team, Luke Nikas and Alex Spiro, are pleased with the decision and are encouraging a proper investigation into the circumstances of the tragic accident. The Santa Fe’s District Attorney’s office declined to comment on the situation.

“We are pleased with the decision to dismiss the case against Alec Baldwin and we encourage a proper investigation into the facts and circumstances of this tragic accident,” said Baldwin attorneys.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, Baldwin’s co-defendant and ex-Rust armorer, still faces charges, keeping the investigation open and giving prosecutors the power to subpoena going forward.

The Post Millennial has the balance of the story here.

Profit that liberals can murder people on camera and get away with it, literally.


If he were a Republican, he’d be in prison for bad language already.


Here he is in 2014 throwing himself a pity party and saying how he’s quitting show business because he got caught using homophobic slurs. If he made good on that he wouldn’t be where he is now.

Prosecutorial incompetence is a phrase being bandied about on this. I read a mention of the hammer being replaced on the revolver in question – whether done prior to, or after, forensic testing is important. I suspect that if after, the prosecutors may feel the evidence may be tainted before the defense can properly analyze it on their own. Who knows…

Many here predicted Baldwin would walk eventually. Another fine example of having the best justice system money can buy, I guess.


Buy if you are the right political persuasion that is.


“Many here predicted Baldwin would walk eventually.”

I do believe that the King of Battle, THE King of First was the very FIRST to say this mofo would walk. This was one time I really wanted to be wrong. Shoulda knowed I wouldn’t be. *sigh*

I just pray that the wrongful death suit that should be filed will break the POS financially.


He will suddenly be so poor and penniles. The insurance company is going to be the one paying out.

Well, King, you also had ol’ Poe explaining back then why Baldwin would never be prosecuted–Santa Fe is overrun with woke, wealthy, coastal libs, especially from the arts and entertainment industries.

New Mexico is another one of those states where political control resides in the Dem-controlled cities and rural conservatives have no voice.

They can hold out the possibility of charges being refiled, but they won’t–this injustice will die a quiet death in some late Friday afternoon news release when it has been all but forgotten by the public.


Truth. Imagine being from an area as red as Farmington (like me) and realizing that Santa Fe and Taos were filled with stank-ass hippies that were too weird for CA.


I heard it was the trigger that was replaced. It wouldn’t make any difference either way. The subject revolver was laboriously tested at the FBI firearms lab, and it functioned normally. This is merely an excuse for dropping the charges. I also heard that the charges against the armorer. Bottom line, Baldwin had to have pulled or held the trigger back with hammer at full cock, or the pistol could not have fired.

Glad you mentioned this rgr769 with your knowledge of cowboy action shooting wheel guns. Was mentioned on the radio earlier but I couldn’t get every thing in. I forgot about the FBI testing the gun and of course many of us thought he would get away with it.


I heard they are dropping the charges against that incompetent armorer, as well, when she was likely the person who loaded the repo SAA.

Was the gun in storage after the FBI tested it and found it functual as rgr 769 mentioned on his below comment.???


Since it is evidence, it has to be in a sealed evidence box since the FBI returned it to New Mexico.


Guns don’t kill people, Alec Baldwin does.

Both Baldwin and his wife are as usless as a dried up creek on a hot summer day…

I wonder whom and how much he paid off to get this turn of events…

“….without prejudice…”
Well, there is that, but I doubt if any charges will ever be re-filed.


There is one Judge whom Alec Baldwin cannot escape.
I wouldn’t cry if he had a Court appearance before said Judge tomorrow.


It certainly wouldn’t be a loss to society.


I would simply love to drop-kick the dog shit out of his hideous corpse. Argh, and that is the way Satan works, deceiving us into thinking about any of us can actually change the character of evil.

The Lord will deal with all things. It will suck to have been alec, sean penn and just about the entirety of the characterization of “entertainment” in the course of my lifetime.

FWIW, I do not think that the cretin ever intended to kill that camera operator. It’s just easy to hate him. Damn the Devil for taunting us, all.


Not surprised in the least.

Saddened and angry to the extreme.

Anyone want to bet that the DA got a substantial donation to his / her re election campaign??

So, who the eff is Hannah Gutierrez-Reed?
Is this a female equity hire with hyphenated last name that checks all the boxes and have zero experience with firearms?

pookysgirl, WC wife

IIRC, she was someone with very little prop gun experience that Baldwin (also a producer, which is why he should get more blame than just being the actor who fired the gun) hired as a way to save money rather than hiring an experienced armorer.


She got the job because her daddy is a longtime Hollyweird armorer and she was low bidder.

Gutierrez Reed, according to affidavits filed by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, had loaded the weapons that day, but she told sheriff’s detectives that she didn’t realize that actual bullets were contained in a new box of ammunition that arrived on set that day.

Gutierrez Reed told sheriff’s detectives that although she checked Baldwin’s gun that day before the unscheduled rehearsal, she “didn’t really check it too much,” because the weapon had been locked in a safe during a lunch break.

She also complained to deputies that she was stretched too thin performing her props role and was unaware that a rehearsal was taking place.

Santa Fe County authorities have not said where the live bullets came from. Law enforcement officials previously have said their investigation is focusing on the actions of Gutierrez Reed, Halls and Baldwin.

The Oct. 14 exchange with Pickle, who was the producers’ point person in charge of the day-to-day production, underscores how the young women in the props department, with limited experience, were struggling to keep up with the pace of the film’s production.


Well, the no talent sack of foul excrement is 65 years old so here’s hoping he doesn’t offend us with his presence too much longer. As brother Don Shipley used to say, He should brush his teeth with a pistol.
