Judge Gives Rust Armorer 18 Months in Prison

Tough stuff.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the armorer on the set of "Rust" who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter after cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was shot on set and died, was sentenced to the maximum penalty of 18 months in prison on Monday.

Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer gave the maximum sentence as Gutierrez-Reed did not "take accountability in her allocution," did not apologize for what she did and is not remorseful for her role, adding: "Your attorney had to tell the court you were remorseful."

An allocution is a detailed admission of every act the defendant committed. It's more than a plea, it's a narrative confessing guilt step-by-step. Sometimes it's required as part of a plea. Guuterrez-Reed was found guilty by a jury, though. I think New Mexico allows a defendant to make an allocution post-verdict to take responsibility for the crime, and get a reduced sentence if the judge approves.

The judge did not approve.


Gutierrez-Reed was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in March following a trial that revolved around whether she neglected safety protocols with live ammunition loaded into the prop gun.

The state prosecutors said before Monday's sentencing Gutierrez-Reed "continues to refuse to accept responsibility for her role in the death of Halyna Hutchins" and instead has placed blame on witnesses, jurors, the set medic and more.


At the start of the sentencing, prosecutor Kari Morrissey claimed Gutierrez-Reed's jail phone calls showed her real character. NBC News reported that in calls with her mother, boyfriend and the paralegal for her attorney, Gutierrez-Reed said jurors were "idiots" and "a**holes" and complained about how long it took them to deliberate.

Sentencing the armorer to 18 months in jail makes it very hard for the state to give Alec Baldwin a sweetheart deal and sentence him to a month of community service on MSNBC. After all, he's the guy who actually fired the fatal bullet, and he is just as negligent as Guitterez-Reed.

But I trust The Regime to find a way to say "no intent."
