Schoharie crash prosecutors ask permission to hand 'potentially exculpatory' grand jury materials to defense
September 26, 2019 05:53 PM
A few months shy of the trial in the deadly Schoharie limo crash, new documents reveal the prosecution is asking the court permission to hand over grand jury materials to the defense team representing Nauman Hussain.
The reason? They believe those materials are "potentially exculpatory."
Exculpatory evidence is evidence favorable to the defendant in a criminal trial.
Hussain is the operator of the limo company involved in the crash that killed 20 people nearly a year ago. He's pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide charges.
Meanwhile, NewsChannel 13 is still waiting on new safety guidelines from the NTSB geared toward protecting passengers. Those are expected in the coming weeks.
