Soules’ Trial Set for November

A trial date has been set for Chris Soules.

The Arlington farmer who starred as the “Bachelor” on reality TV is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident after he rear-ended a tractor last April in Buchanan County.

A judge signed an order Tuesday setting a jury trial for November 7th in Independence. Judge Andrea Dryer set aside four days.

Soules recently failed in his attempt to get the Iowa Supreme Court to dismiss the felony charge, contending Iowa’s law requiring fatal wreck surviving drivers to wait for police is unconstitutional.
