The judge in the Schoharie limousine case has set a trial date of May 1, 2023 for Nauman Hussain, the operator of the limo company involved.

Hussain’s manslaughter trial was scheduled to start on Oct. 31. However, as we reported Tuesday, Judge Peter Lynch postponed the trial from that date.

Hussain is facing 20 counts of manslaughter – one for each of the 20 people who died in the October 2018 crash in Schoharie.

The judge rejected the plea agreement in the case on Aug. 31. The deal would’ve sentenced Hussain to five years of probation. He withdrew his guilty plea as a result, sending the case to trial.
