Thursday marks four years since 20 people were killed in a limo crash in Schoharie.

The horrific crash captured the attention of the entire country and it still haunts people here in the Capital Region.

There are people who feel justice has still not been served since the crash.

Meanwhile, Nauman Hussain, the operator of the limo company involved, and the only person to face criminal charges stemming from the crash, is preparing to go to trial.

NewsChannel 13 sat down with Hussain’s attorney, Lee Kindlon, to talk about how they’re preparing.

“In a lot of ways, physically, intellectually, legally, you have to take all that stuff off the shelf and open it back up. It opened up a lot of painful memories for a lot of people, I know. Preparing for what’s going to be a really difficult, probably month-long trial is pretty awful,” Kindlon said.

Kindlon also says his team is looking into whether the judge had the authority to reject the previous plea deal – which did not include jail time – as well as if there’s a change of venue motion that could be filed.

NewsChannel 13 reached out to the Schoharie County District Attorney for comment, we have yet to hear back.
