Fredericksburg teen sentenced to not more than 10 years for pedestrian's death

Posted:
CHICKASAW COUNTY (KWWL) -

A Fredericksburg teen will spend no more than ten years behind bars for vehicular homicide.

Eighteen-year-old Trisha Schneider pleaded guilty to the charge of hitting and killing 58-year-old Scott Henry while he was walking his dog November 2011. She offered an apology to a packed court room

"I would like to say that I'm so sorry for all the pain I've caused," Schneider said in court.

Officials said Schneider didn't have a driver's license and she drove away from the crash. The judge said she would have received a lessor sentence if she had stopped and offered help after the crash.
