Prosecutors blamed Gutierrez-Reed for unwittingly bringing live ammunition onto the set of Rust where it was expressly prohibited and for failing to follow basic gun safety protocols. After a two-week trial, the jury deliberated for about three hours in reaching its verdict.

An involuntary manslaughter trial for actor Alec Baldwin’s alleged role in the shooting will begin in July.
