Soules Receives Two-Year Suspended Sentence for Fatal Crash

Arlington farmer and former “Bachelor” star Chris Soules agreed to a two-year suspended sentence on Friday.

Soules had pled guilty to leaving the scene of a crash in April 2017.

He was driving his pickup truck in the 1000 block of W-45 north of Aurora when he rear-ended a tractor driven by 66-year old Kenneth Mosher of Aurora. The tractor rolled into the ditch. Soules called 911 and performed CPR on Mosher at the scene, but left before law enforcement arrived.

Mosher was taken to a local hospital, where he died. Soules was arrested at his Arlington home a few hours later.

Court documents show that in addition to the two-year suspended sentence, Soules will also be fined 625 dollars.
