The operator of Prestige Limo, the company at the center of that deadly Schoharie crash last October, has entered a not guilty plea to a total of 40 criminal charges against him, and is free on bond.
Nauman Hussain was indicted this week on 20 counts of criminally negligent homicide and 20 counts of manslaughter.
After the arraignment, attorney Lee Kindlon took issue with those who say Hussain is a flight risk because his father is in another country, and may seek to move the trial to another location.
The courtroom was packed with family members of those who died in the crash.
The judge ordered Hussain to wear a GPS tracking device and to meet with his probation officer every week.Hussain also cannot leave New York State.
