Statement on Judge's Decision in Schoharie Limo Crash Case

“I’m pleased with the Judge’s decision today to reject the plea deal that was inappropriately offered to the defendant in the Schoharie limousine crash. It was incomprehensible that a person responsible for the deadliest transportation disaster in over a decade should be offered a deal that included no time in prison. With this decision, it’s my hope that the limousine operator will now be held fully accountable, justice will be served for all of the victims’ families, and that all levels of government will continue to work together to ensure a tragedy like this never happens again.”
