"Rust" armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed reportedly having 'tough time' behind bars

Last week, "Rust" armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter for her role in handing actor Alec Baldwin the gun that contained live rounds, which resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

Gutierrez-Reed was remanded into custody prior to her upcoming sentencing date, and according to Yahoo Entertainment, she's having a "hard time" behind bars.

The "Rust" armorer faces up to 18 months in prison for the crime, but she has yet to be sentenced.

Currently, she's behind bars at a New Mexico detention center while she awaits her sentencing trial.

What's going on?

According to her attorney, Jason Bowles, Gutierrez-Reed isn't having fun while held at the Santa Fe County Adult Detention Facility.

She's reportedly having a tough time and has yet to be visited by her family, though it was noted that a visit is currently being arranged.

Yahoo Entertainment noted:

Her loved ones are said to be devastated by the guilty verdict, although she was acquitted on a charge of tampering with evidence. Prosecutors presented a witness who testified that Hannah Gutierrez-Reed handed her a bag of white powder on the day Halyna Hutchins was killed.

It was noted that the witness, a self-described recovering addict, reportedly discarded the bag of white powder at the hotel where the crew was staying. The substance was never found.

Gutierrez-Reed ultimately escaped the charge of tampering with evidence.

Family reacts

The family of the deceased cinematographer was happy with the charges against the armorer.

"Halyna’s parents and her sister have always wanted everyone who is responsible for Halyna’s death to be held accountable," family attorneys attorneys Gloria Allred and John Carpenter said.

They added, "Today was the first trial and conviction in the criminal justice process. We are satisfied that the jury, based on the evidence, found Hannah Gutierrez-Reed guilty beyond a reasonable doubt for her part in the taking of Halyna’s life."

Actor Alec Baldwin's trial is set to begin in July. Only time will tell where that ends up.
