John Lincoln-Lynch – the man accused in a fatal hit-and-run in South Glens Falls – was arraigned on a new indictment on Friday morning. A judge dismissed the previous indictment against John Lincoln-Lynch because of errors made by prosecutors.

Lincoln-Lynch is accused of hitting and killing Paul Trombley in February 2021, then taking off. Trombley was a well-liked teacher and coach in the Glens Falls-area for decades. He was walking to Stewart’s on Main Street in South Glens Falls last February, when he was hit.

Lincoln-Lynch was offered a plea deal in October by the Saratoga County District Attorney’s Office, but the defense rejected the deal. The plea deal included a minimum prison sentence of one to three years, with a maximum of four and a half years.

The defense claims Lincoln-Lynch had no idea that he’d hit Trombley.
