Alec Baldwin Lawsuit Lawyers' Acrimonious Emails Are Revealed
Prosecutors and the legal team defending Alec Baldwin are engaged in heated discussions as the criminal case against the actor heats up.
This past week, a request for a remark regarding the motion was not quickly answered by the DA's office.
Baldwin was originally charged with two counts of involuntary homicide in Hutchins' murder by district attorney Mary Carmack Altwies on January 31.
The last remaining alternative standard, which now demands proof of negligence, is forbidden in New Mexico and entails a $5,000 fine and a maximum jail term of 18 months.
“The prosecution’s priority is securing justice, not securing billable hours for big-city attorneys,”
Two days later, on a Sunday, special prosecutor Andrea Reeb sent an email to Baldwin's lawyers in which she criticized them for not following protocol and stated that the prosecution was "a bit perplexed on your move on the firearm increase."
In addition, according to Baldwin's Feb. 20 petition, the prosecution "amplified the error" in January national television interviews, including a Jan. 21 Fox News interview, in which they claimed the actor would be sentenced to a minimum of five years in jail if found guilty.
Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer for the movie, was also accused in the incident and appeared before Marlowe Sommer on Friday for her initial hearing.
Gutierrez-Reed was given terms of release awaiting prosecution after failing to make a plea during the hearing.
The "Rust" directors have revealed that they intend to wrap up shooting at the Yellowstone Film Ranch in Montana and start production this spring.
