Attorney says Baldwin “needs to start thinking like a potential defendant instead of just somebody who made a tragic mistake”

New questions are emerging in Alec Baldwin’s movie set shooting tragedy that took the life of Director of Photography Halyna Hutchins.

Authorities launched an investigation into the incident and Baldwin has said he is cooperating “fully.”

“He needs to start thinking like a potential defendant instead of just somebody who made a tragic mistake,” Attorney Andrew Stoltman warned while discussing Baldwin with Fox News. “There are crimes that cover this sort of situation depending on his level of culpability.”

“There are literally about a hundred different issues that would need to be resolved, but there is something called negligent homicide,” Stoltmann continued “I’m certainly not saying he’s going to be charged, but what I am saying is anytime somebody shoots another human being – even on accident, even in self-defense – the police and eventually prosecutors look very, very carefully at what happened.”

Stoltman added “further decisions with respect to any criminal liability would be made at another time” after the investigation Baldwin is cooperating with has concluded.
