    Default EX-'BACHELOR' CHRIS SOULES STRIKES PLEA DEAL In Fatal Car Crash Case



    Former 'Bachelor' Chris Soules just copped an incredibly sweet plea in his fatal car crash, and it means he's no longer facing a felony ... but he could still end up doing time.
    Soules entered a guilty plea Tuesday in Iowa's Buchanan County to one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident ... an aggravated misdemeanor.
    He had initially pled not guilty to a felony charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and unsuccessfully tried to get the charge dismissed.


    According to prosecutors, Soules rear-ended a John Deere tractor and sent it and its driver flying into a ditch. He stuck around until EMTs arrived, but left before cops got there. He insisted he did everything he could to help the other driver, who eventually died.
    According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Soules attorney testified his client suffered a concussion during the accident, but still called 911 and administered CPR before paramedics got there.


    He was later arrested at his house, but allegedly refused to come out at first. Cops say they found alcoholic beverages in his car that were either empty or partially consumed. Prosecutors argued Chris failed to provide a proper explanation for the booze.
    In docs, Soules' lawyer says all on-scene witnesses agreed there was no indication Soules had been drinking.
    He'll be sentenced in January and, because he pled guilty to aggravated misdemeanor, he could get up to 2 years in jail.

    Is this true? I thought you had to stay unless you were in some sort of peril.

    At least he'll hopefully get a little jail time. Maybe not enough, but some.

    Default Ex-'Bachelor' Chris Soules Accepts D.A.'s Plea Deal in Fatal Car Crash


    Former 'Bachelor' Chris Soules is on board with a 2-year in prison sentence, but he's getting a pass on doing time behind bars.

    Soules' attorney filed docs accepting the D.A.'s proposed sentence for his conditional guilty plea to leaving the scene of an accident resulting in serious injury. The D.A. recommended he get a 2-year suspended sentence, and Soules is officially accepting the deal.


    The judge still has to sign off on the deal, but assuming it's approved ... Soules would effectively be on some form of probation under the supervision of Iowa's Dept. of Correctional Services for the 2 years.


    As we reported ... Soules entered his plea in November. The crime is an aggravated misdemeanor.

    Prosecutors say Soules slammed his pickup truck into a John Deere tractor in April 2017, sending the tractor and its driver flying into a ditch. Chris remained at the scene until EMTs arrived, but he bounced before cops showed up. He insisted he did everything in his power to help the driver, who eventually died.

    Soules' attorney argued his client suffered a concussion during the crash and claimed Chris dialed 911 and administered CPR before paramedics arrived.


    You'll recall ... Soules was arrested at his house after initially refusing to come out. Prosecutors say he bought booze before the fatal accident.

    However, according to docs, Soules' lawyer says all witnesses at the scene agreed there was no indication he'd been drinking.

    Soules appeared on season 19 of "The Bachelor" in 2015.

    So he kills a man in a vehicular manslaughter accident and get probation?

    I hope that the late victim’s family sues his arse for everything he’s got in this lifetime and the next, not that it will bring back their loved one.
