'Rust' armorer sentenced to 18 months in prison for fatal shooting

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, the "Rust" armorer found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for her role in the fatal shooting of the film's cinematographer, was sentenced to 18 months in prison Monday by a New Mexico district court judge.

A jury had convicted Gutierrez-Reed in March in the 2021 death of Halyna Hutchins - the first trial verdict connected to the incident. She has spent more than a month in a county jail awaiting sentencing, according to the Associated Press.

Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer sentenced Gutierrez-Reed to the maximum 18 months in state prison. Prosecutors had argued in court filings for her to receive the full sentence due to her "recklessness" and "complete and total failure to accept responsibility for her actions," as seen through recorded jail phone conversations.
