Schimdt pleads guilty in fatal hit-and-run

September 13, 2018

GREENWICH — Andrew Schmidt pleaded guilty Thursday morning to a fatal hit-and-run and run collision that took the life of a Cos Cob man in 2016.

Schmidt, 19, accepted an offer made by a Superior Court judge that would give him one to three years in prison, as well as probation. He was facing a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars for striking Edward Setterberg, 43, on East Putnam Avenue.

Asked in court how he pleaded to a charge of evading responsibilty resulting in death, Schmidt said “guilty” in a barely audible tone.

He is due for sentencing Nov. 28.
