Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria look somber as they step out for coffee run in NYC – after he was indicted again for Rust shooting

Must read

Alec Baldwin and wife Hilaria looked somber as they stepped out for coffee in NYC this week –  amid the actor’s latest indictment in connection to the shooting on the set of the Western film Rust in 2021.

Baldwin, 65, and his wife, 40, were in intense conversation as they walked with their dog in tow during the day.

The It’s Complicated star wore a black hoodie and grey jeans, teamed with sneakers as he clutched two drinks.

Hilaria wore a grey top, puffy jacket and jeans for her walk with the star. 

Alec’s indictment over the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was returned last month and charges him with involuntary manslaughter on the grounds of negligent use of a firearm and disregard for others’ safety.

If convicted, Baldwin faces up to 18 months in prison. He has pleaded not guilty.

The new involuntary manslaughter charges have been ‘frustrating’ and ‘very stressful’ for the actor and his wife Hilaria, according to People.

A source said, ‘They had a great Christmas and New Year. Hilaria also just turned 40. This is not how they wanted to start the new year.’

‘It’s stressful for Hilaria. It’s frustrating for them both that Alec is being recharged. They knew there was a possibility there would be a new indictment. The back and forth is hard. It’s very stressful.’

In a statement, Baldwin’s attorneys Alex Spiro and Luke Nikas said: ‘We look forward to our day in court.’

Meanwhile Allred said in a statement: ‘Our clients have always sought the truth about what happened on the day that Halyna Hutchins was tragically shot and killed on October 21, 2021.

‘They continue to seek the truth in our civil lawsuit for them and they also would like there to be accountability in the criminal justice system.

‘The grand jury has decided that there is sufficient evidence to indict Alec Baldwin on the charge of involuntary manslaughter. We are looking forward to the criminal trial which will determine if he should be convicted for the untimely death of Halyna.’

On October 21, 2021, Baldwin was filming a scene inside a church when he pulled the trigger on his Colt .45 revolver and fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

He’s insisted that the gun fired spontaneously, as he struck director Joel Souza in the shoulder before he shot Hutchins.

Hutchins was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Baldwin was interviewed by the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office following her death, as he showed tremendous emotions for his actions.

He was initially charged in January 2023 by First Judicial District Attorney of New Mexico Mary Carmack-Altwies, who launched her own media tour soon after filing charges.

Baldwin’s team interpreted her enthusiasm for the case as a fame-hungry effort to boost her own career.

After hashing it out with his team in the court of public opinion, Carmack-Altwies stepped down from the case and a special prosecutor was appointed to take over.

In April last year, that team opted to drop the charges and Baldwin, who had already settled a wrongful death lawsuit launched by Hutchins’ family, breathed a momentary sigh of relief.

Baldwin has always maintained that he followed gun safety laws, and that the fault lies with the armorer or crew who handed him a gun loaded with a live round.

 Baldwin was due to go to court on August 6.

But last week his trial was cancelled due to a judge reassignment, according to National Post

Under the terms of most recent release, the Amityville, New York native cannot possess firearms or drink alcohol, and is not to have contact with witnesses in the case, except for business reasons related to the release of Rust. 

So far, there’s been no official word on when his trial will be rescheduled.
