SCHOHARIE, N.Y. (AP) — The operator of a limousine company has pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and will avoid prison time in a 2018 crash that killed 20 people in upstate New York. Nauman Hussain will be sentenced to five years of probation and 1,000 hours of community service under a plea deal approved Thursday. The former operator of Prestige Limousine was originally also charged with 20 counts each of second-degree manslaughter. The stretch limo crashed after its brakes failed on a hill and it reached speeds of more than 100 mph. Seventeen family members and friends celebrating a birthday were killed. So were the driver and two bystanders.
