CHRIS SOULES’ SENTENCING DELAYED

The legal drama continues for Bachelor alum Chris Soules and the family of the man he who died in the fatal car crash he and Soules got into two years ago.

On Tuesday, a judge in a Buchanan County, Iowa court delayed sentencing after defense attorney Robert Montgomery mounted a last-ditch effort to have victim impact statements in the case thrown out.

Because the judge had the statements thrown out, a new pre-sentence investigation report was issued.

In November of 2018, Soules struck a deal with prosecutors. In exchange for pleading guilty to one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, he received a charge of aggravated misdemeanor.

Initially, he pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of a fatal accident after he rear-ended a John Deere tractor, sending it into a ditch. The driver later died from his injuries.

Experts say he could get up to two years in jail. Soules was The Bachelor during season 19 in 2015 of the hit ABC show.
