A last-ditch appeal from Nauman Hussain over the 2018 Schoharie limo crash has been denied. This means the trial will begin as scheduled on May 1.

The ruling comes from the New York State Court of Appeals.

A state appeals court last week denied a motion from Hussain – the operator of the limo company involved in the 2018 crash that killed 20 people in Schoharie.

Hussain sued to restore the original plea deal in the case that would have sentenced him to five years’ probation and no jail time, but it was thrown out by Judge Peter Lynch at sentencing.
