Alec Baldwin has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter charges following the fatal shooting on the set of his movie ‘Rust’, court records show. Baldwin pleaded Thursday and waived his first court appearance, which was scheduled for Friday.
District Judge Mary Sommer agreed to waive the hearing and set several conditions for Baldwin’s release, including barring the actor from handling firearms and drinking alcohol.
Baldwin is also prohibited from discussing the shooting and any possible testimony with potential witnesses. The only interaction he is allowed to have with potential witnesses is “in connection with the completion of the movie ‘Rust,'” Sommer wrote, and other related activities such as promotion.
