A New Mexico judge is scheduled to rule on whether Hollywood star Alec Baldwin is off the hook for an involuntary manslaughter charge filed against him in January.

The “30 Rock” actor’s motion to dismiss is set to be heard on Friday, Breitbart reported.

Baldwin was implicated in the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins in October 2021.

The incident happened while filming the Western “Rust” as Baldwin was holding a gun that was not supposed to hold live rounds.

Breaking the first rule of gun safety, Baldwin pointed the firearm at another human being and pulled the trigger, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.

The 66-year-old was co-producing the film and starred in the leading role.

Baldwin has maintained his innocence and pleaded not guilty.

Attorneys for Baldwin filed the motion to dismiss, citing prosecutors’ alleged misconduct during the grand jury proceedings.
