E!- More than a year since his April 2017 arrest, Chris Soules has entered a new plea in his fatal car crash case. The former Bachelor, dubbed “Prince Farming” during his reality TV days, entered a written guilty plea to leaving the scene of a personal injury accident on Tuesday, Nov. 13, E! News has confirmed. He will be sentenced on Jan. 8, 2019 and faces up to two years in prison. The plea comes 19 months after he was arrested following a car crash in his native Iowa. At the time, the Iowa State Patrol confirmed to E! News that Soules was driving a pickup truck that rear-ended 66-year-old Kenneth Mosher’s tractor trailer. According to authorities, the 37-year-old reality star left the scene prior to law enforcement’s arrival and was later arrested 15 miles away at his Arlington home in the early morning. Mosher was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Soules appeared in court the following morning, where he was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal car accident. He was released after his mother, Linda, posted $10,000 bail on his behalf.
Wait what? He only faces up to two years in prison? That seems pretty low if you ask me. Two years or two hundred years? The article says just two years. I don’t get it. The charges seem very focused on the part where Prince Farming left the scene of the crash and not the part where he rear-ended a guy and killed him. Like yeah he left the scene of the crash and that was the wrong thing to do but the really wrong thing was him crashing into a 66-year-old guy on a tractor trailer who later died from his injuries. I’m not a lawyer but that’s a little thing we like to call manslaughter but they simply can’t stop talking about how he left the scene of the crash. YEAH THE SCENE WHERE HE KILLED A GUY. There wouldn’t be the lesser charge to plead guilty to if the whole killing a guy thing didn’t happen. I guess him pleading guilty to the lesser charge makes it all go away? Again, I don’t get it. The family of the guy Chris Soules killed have to be pissed, right? Have to be. I’m pissed and I didn’t even know the guy. Bizarre to say the least.
