Rulison Update on Schoharie Limousine Verdict
On May 17, Nauman Hussain, the operator of the limousine company that killed 20 people in a crash in Schoharie County in 2018, was convicted on 20 counts of second-degree manslaughter. He faces up to 10 years in prison when sentenced later this month. Earlier the judge had rejected a deal negotiated by Susan Mallory, the Schoharie District Attorney, where Hussain would have avoided jail time by pleading to criminally negligent homicide. The jury took only a few hours to reach the verdict. Larry Rulison, who has covered the case for the Times Union, provides an update to Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine, including possible charges against Mavis Discount Tire for falsified records on brake repairs it failed to do.
