Ex-'Bachelor' Chris Soules Strikes Plea Deal in Fatal Car Crash

2015 'Bachelor' star pleads guilty to reduced charge in fatal crash

According to TMZ, Soules entered a guilty plea to one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident... which, even though a man was killed due to Soules' negligence, that's only a misdemeanor!

A farmer who appeared on ABC's "The Bachelor" has pleaded guilty in a fatal crash a year ago near his home in northern Iowa.

He had initially pled not guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and unsuccessfully tried to get the charge dismissed. The person driving the tractor trailer, later identified as 66-year-old farmer Kenneth Mosher, was taken in an ambulance to the hospital, where he died. "The evidence will further show that emergency responders arrived on the scene shortly after Mr. Soules concluded his 911 call".

He appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" after his "Bachelor" season.

"Mr. Soules described the location of the accident and communicated with dispatch for approximately 5 minutes and 45 seconds while help was en route", the court papers read.

"People who have a fender bender are at a crash scene longer than Mr. Soules", Assistant Iowa Attorney General Scott Brown said at the time of the motion.

Harden also alleged that the reality TV veteran had "empty and partially consumed open" alcoholic beverages "located in and around his vehicle".

The motion reasoned that the evidence should be suppressed because Soules tested negative for drugs or alcohol.

The aggravated misdemeanor charge carries a maximum penalty of jail time of no more than two years and/or a fine of not more than $6,250, and a minimum penalty of a fine of $625 along with a suspended jail sentence or a deferred judgment.

Soules' attorney indicated in a court filing earlier this month that he and prosecutors were getting close to reaching a plea agreement.
