With possible new charges, Baldwin offered Army or jail
You're in the Army now?
Baldwin laughs at a judge who surely must be kidding.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – As a grand jury considers new manslaughter charges against Alec Baldwin for the killing of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, New Mexico Judge Javier Solano announced that he would allow actor and alleged shooter Alec Baldwin the unusual step of choosing a court trial or enlisting in the Army.
"I'm a firm believer that the Army has a great record of taking errant men off the street and transforming them into real men," said the 87-year-old judge. "I remember seeing young punks off to the recruiting station and then onward to Vietnam. They came home much more mature...or, um, in a body bag. Either way, it was good for society."
New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies, the prosecutor who filed the case, was baffled by the decision. "I don't see how this is judicially possible, or even how this choice gives justice to the victim. Anyway, I think he's too old to enlist. And he's so fat. Or skinny. Who can keep up?"
