Chris Soules has scored yet another victory in his fatal hit-and-run case. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that the former Bachelor star’s trial has been delayed yet again.
In court papers obtained from Buchanan County Court, Soules’ January 11 pretrial conference and July 19 trial have both been continued.
“By later order the trial and pretrial dates will be reset,” the court papers state.
As Radar reported in June, Soules requested the court hearings be postponed.
“Mr. Soules respectfully requests that this Court enter an Order continuing the pretrial conference and trial by at least 90 days and extending the deadlines for discovery, notice of defenses, and pretrial motions by at least 60 days,” the papers read.
Soules’ team claimed at the time that the parties are “still actively engaged in exchanging discovery materials.” While the State has provided materials requested by Soules on May 16, several items are still forthcoming.
The former ABC star was arrested on April 24 when he rear-ended the tractor of Kenneth Mosher, 66. Mosher was thrown into a ditch and died at a nearby hospital.
Alcoholic beverages and containers were found at the scene. Soules was also caught on camera purchasing alcoholic beverages prior to the crash.
He entered a plea of not guilty on May 16.
