He certainly has some, but does he have enough to convince 12 people he should face a minimum of a five year sentence? Because I think not.I mean you're probably right. Personally I think Baldwin has some liability and responsibility,
Baldwin's role as a producer could have some impact, but he wasn't the only producer and the prosecution declined to charge any of the other producers. This suggests the only concrete rationale for Baldwin to be charged is as the individual who shot the bullet.
At that point, there are on-set safety rules, an armourer who supposed to check the weapons and oversee safety, and allegedly an assistant director who checked the gun and declared it safe, etc. All jurors have to do is put themselves in Baldwin's shoes and start thinking of times where they did something relying on other people's checks and assurances, and how fair they would feel it would be if it were them being held primarily responsible for something going wrong. That's going to make them very shy of convicting for a crime with a heavy penalty.
