Watch: Rust armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed sentenced for involuntary manslaughter

Watch live as Rust armourer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed is sentenced for involuntary manslaughter in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Monday, 15 April, after being convicted of manslaughter last month.

The 26-year-old was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter over the 2021 accidental shooting death of Halyna Hutchins, who was killed when a prop gun held by Alec Baldwin fired a live round of ammunition during filming.

The actor will go on trial in July for involuntary manslaughter over the cinematographer’s death.

Gutierrez-Reed, dressed in prison overalls, sobbed as she was given the maximum 18 month-sentence.

Prosecutors sought the maximum penalty for Gutierrez-Reed, maintaining that the jailhouse calls to her mother, boyfriend, and her attorney’s paralegal made clear her “complete and total failure to accept responsibility for her actions,” according to court filings.

During Monday’s hearing the court heard victim impact statements including one from Hutchins’ mother, Olga Solovey, who lives in Kyiv, Ukraine.

The family’s attorney, Gloria Allred, read Solovey’s statement.

“Time does not heal, it simply prolongs my pain and suffering,” Allred said, on behalf of Ms Solovey.

“I have hope that the guilty, those that are responsible for the death of my daughter, will be punished fairly and be sentenced justly. Justice must prevail.”
