Okay folks, here’s the latest official news were getting on Alec Baldwin.

For the 5th time, he’s made another move to dismiss his involuntary manslaughter charge.

It was on Monday that he filed to have the charges dropped.

This comes after Baldwin’s legal team kept pushing their arguments from last Friday’s virtual hearing.

He’ll have to wait until June 28 to get a ruling from Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer on that.

It seems this is one case that isn’t going away, no matter how hard Alec and his team try.

Truth will eventually come out about what happened on set.

Truth about if Halyna Hutchins was killed on purpose or if this an accident.

And if she was really working on a documentary about trafficking.

Fox News reports:

Alec Baldwin attempted to dismiss his involuntary manslaughter charge in a new motion filed Monday, according to documents obtained by Fox News Digital.

The Emmy Award-winning actor filed his fifth bid to have the charges dropped while his legal team continued arguments from Friday’s virtual hearing where Baldwin was denied one of two requests to end the “Rust” star’s involuntary manslaughter case.

Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer refused to issue a ruling until at least Friday, June 28, regarding Baldwin’s request that charges should be dismissed due to destruction of evidence.

Baldwin did not appear in the virtual hearings but was spotted in the Hamptons over the weekend. The “30 Rock” actor previously filed court paperwork waiving all his future pre-trial appearances.

Baldwin’s legal team requested an order dismissing the indictment with prejudice in an expedited motion for relief. They argued that the state violated discovery obligations by not immediately disclosing “critical evidence” deemed favorable to Baldwin’s defense, that “fundamentally reshapes the way Baldwin would have prepared for trial.”

“The State’s strategy — trial by ambush — is grossly prejudicial and abhorred by courts,” documents stated. “The reason for that is obvious: Baldwin has had to divert substantial time and resources just to pursue the growing list of undisclosed discovery that continues to emerge from hiding — not to mention the time it takes to review more than 150,000 pages of documents and countless hours of audio recordings and videos that have been dumped on Baldwin just weeks before trial. Moreover, most of the State’s late disclosures were made after the dispositive motion and witness deadline. This alone demonstrates how seriously Baldwin has been prejudiced by the State’s misconduct.”

His team continued, “Baldwin deserves to be treated just like any other criminal defendant, and both federal and state law point in one direction: dismissal.”

Sommer denied Baldwin’s request for dismissal during a hearing Friday. Baldwin’s legal team argued the prosecution failed to show that the “Boss Baby” actor even committed a crime. His lawyers pointed out that the prosecution admitted the “prospect of live ammunition” being present on the “Rust” set was “incomprehensible.”

Sommer rejected the argument after an hours-long hearing.

Hannah Gutierrez Reed was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in March after a jury found that the “Rust” armorer was responsible for the gun that discharged a live bullet on the Western film set that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Gutierrez Reed was also found not guilty of evidence tampering, a charge she received in 2023 after investigators accused her of passing off a bag of cocaine on the day of the fatal set shooting.

Some have said that the reason Halyna Hutchins was shot because of the documentary she was working on…
