A former Pennsylvania State Police Cpl. pleaded guilty Tuesday to recklessly endangering another person resulting in the Oct. 1, 2014, accidental shooting death of 26-year-old state trooper David Kedra.
Richard Schroeter, 43, of Royersford, entered into an open guilty plea May 19 in front of Judge Garrett Page to five counts of recklessly endangering another person. Each count is a second degree misdemeanor and carries a maximum sentence of one to two years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
There were five counts of recklessly endangering another person because at the time of the accidental shooting, there were five troopers, including Kedra, in the room.

The Kedra family has been critical of the way the district attorney’s office has handled the case previously saying that District Attorney Risa Ferman should have charged Schroeter with the more serious charge of involuntary manslaughter, a charge that calls for more time spent in prison than recklessly endangering another person.
