South Glens Falls hit & run case appears headed to trial

Wednesday was the deadline for a Moreau man to accept a plea offer related to a fatal hit-and-run, and it looks like John Lincoln-Lynch would rather go to trial.

Lincoln-Lynch is accused of hitting Paul Trombley in South Glens Falls and leaving the scene of the deadly February crash.

The district attorney offered a deal that would have Lincoln-Lynch go to prison for a minimum of one to three years to a maximum of four-and-a-half years.

Judge Jim Murphy gave him until Wednesday at the latest to accept the deal, but Lincoln-Lynch’s appearance has been removed from the court calendar.
