NEW HAMPTON, Iowa (AP) -- A young woman has been given up to 10 years in prison for vehicular homicide. She admitted running into and killing a man who was walking his dog in northeast Iowa last fall.
Eighteen-year-old Trisha Schneider was sentenced on Tuesday. Schneider had pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide after making a deal with prosecutors. They dropped charges of leaving the scene of a fatal accident and involuntary manslaughter.
As part of the plea agreement, the court can reconsider Schneider's incarceration.
Authorities say Schneider, of Fredericksburg, struck 56-year-old Scott Henry and his dog near their home in Fredericksburg on Nov. 8.
Authorities say Schneider fled after Henry's wife arrived and found his body. Schneider didn't have a valid license and wasn't wearing her prescription glasses at the time of the accident.
