Latest: Soules set to appear in November

Posted: Updated:
BUCHANAN COUNTY (KWWL) -

It's been a year since Bachelor reality-TV star Chris Soules was first arrested for leaving the scene of a deadly crash.

Since that time, Soules' attorneys have been working to get the charge against him dropped.

He admits he rear-ended a tractor, killing driver Kenny Mosher, last year.

However, his legal team argues he did what he was supposed to following that crash.

Chris Soules did waive his right to a trial within a year, and he's set to appear later this year.

He's been in and out of court following the arrest for leaving that fatal crash that left Kenny Mosher, 66, of Aurora dead.

Even though he called 911, identified himself, and offered help, prosecutors argue he should have stayed or at least come back.

In September, we tried asking Soules and his attorneys for details about that fatal crash, but they didn't comment.

According to Iowa law, a driver involved in a crash needs to provide their name, address, registration and help if treatment is needed.

The law also indicates all surviving drivers must remain at the scene, unless they're reporting it to authorities, or they must let authorities know where they're located.

This coming November, Chris Soules' attorneys are set to argue his case during a four-day trial.

It's set for Nov. 7 in Buchanan County.
