The actor is currently facing multiple charges, but has since denied any responsibility for the incident. Just a few days ago, the star accused of negligently killing camerawoman Halyna Hutchins celebrated his first major victory in court.

The public prosecutor wanted to retrospectively apply the relevant law, which only came into force after the fatal accident in October 2021. After the objection of Baldwin’s lawyers, however, this plan failed.
