His legal team insisted that because he has maintained regular contact with his supervising probation officer, there should be no issues with him traveling out-of-state.

The court granted his request to travel.

Alcoholic beverages and containers were found at the scene. He was caught on camera purchasing alcohol prior to the crash.

He entered a plea of not guilty on May 16.

Soules is expected to appear in court for the first day of his jury trial on January 18, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
