STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who pleaded guilty to his role in a fatal hit-and-run has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Andrew Schmidt apologized for his role in the 2016 death of 43-year-old Edward Setterberg during sentencing in a Stamford courtroom Tuesday morning. The Greenwich Time reports that Schmidt accepted an offer to plead guilty in September in exchange for a prison term of one to three years.

Schmidt has been free on bond since his arrest when he was 17. Authorities say Schmidt was speeding down a road when he struck Setterberg who was out for an evening walk. Police say Schmidt then fled the scene.

The sentence was imposed immediately and Schmidt left the court in handcuffs.
