BUCHANAN COUNTY, Iowa (KWWL) – Former “Bachelor” star Chris Soules’ sentencing in connection with a 2017 fatal crash was delayed during a hearing Tuesday.
Soules’ attorney asked for the delay. He asked for a new pre-sentence investigation report because he said the investigator included victim impact statements the judge previously ruled should not be considered.
Prosecutors agreed with the request.
The new sentencing date was not given during court.
Authorities said Soules’ pickup collided with a tractor driven by Kenneth Mosher in April of 2017. Soules called 911, but left the scene before police arrived.
Mosher died from his injuries.
Court documents show that last November, Soules filed a written guilty plea to Leaving the Scene of an Accident Resulting in Serious Injury, which is an aggravated misdemeanor. It’s a lesser charge than Soules was facing when he was cited for Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Accident, a Class D Felony.
