On Thursday, February 1, American actor Alec Baldwin will appear in court on charges of involuntary manslaughter following his unintentional shooting death of a camerawoman on a movie set.

Although he will only appear digitally, the 65-year-old actor is expected to be formally charged on February 1 in the First Judicial District Court of New Mexico.

The movie actor, whose real name is Alexander Rae Baldwin, was charged on January 19 after a grand jury decided to prosecute him.

On the set of his disastrous Western picture Rust, Baldwin shot and killed cameraman Halyna Hutchins with a pretend gun loaded with live rounds.

He was indicted by the grand jury for the October 21, 2021, shooting incident’s irresponsible use of a firearm and disrespect for other people’s safety.

If found guilty, he could serve up to 18 months in prison; however, the earlier accusations, brought by prosecutors in New Mexico, were dropped in April of last year.
