Chris Soules' lawyers say that Kenneth Mosher's death did NOT come as a result of Soules' charged offense. (Leaving the scene of a crash resulting in serious injury)
WATCH LIVE: http://bit.ly/2WUI3VH



Yes, he did something wrong: he left the scene of an accident.  However, it seems as if his actions did not cause the death or there would have been other charges.  Having worked insurance claims for many years I will tell you that people do things that don't make any sense following an accident: things that they regret later and things they shouldn't have done. People feel no injury but later find they were walking around on a broken leg.  
Sooooo...it is hard to say why he reacted the way he did. Someone died: someone he knew, he was likely upset, maybe even in shock, at the time and reacted in a way he may regret. ( I can't read minds) He will now pay the price for that.

The oldest trick in the book. First they give him a plea bargain that enables him to be charged with a lesser charge. Then, they rightfully claim the lesser charge does not meet the requirements for the actual crime. Of course the plead down charge didn’t cause his death, Duh!?!

It’s ok. The family can’t get the victim back so, they got the next best thing. They probably didn’t want to see Chris do jail time anyway. I sure didn’t. I would just want my life to have a higher price tag than $2.5M, even at his age. All IMO.

@Chgohighlife IDK seriously. I guess what my life is worth depends on how I live it, how I treat others and hopefully give the best to each— others and myself. You can’t take money with you, so it’s worthless to the one who’s passed on and generally cold cmfort, IMO to the survivors.


My doctor asked me: "Does anyone in your family suffer from mental illness?" My answer:"No they all enjoy it immensely."
No good deed goes unpunished.

@Kashathediva
You misunderstood what I was saying. Actuarial science assigns the value of a life based on completely different criteria than you’re citing so those factors, all of them - are irrelevant as it relates to compensation which already assumes that money will be used to resolve the claim. That’s why the family/survivors sued, for money - cold comfort or not - and the amount is related to his age and earning potential, (among other factors) only measurable tangibles. IMO Successful strategic elimination of victim statements from the record and sentencing delays contributed to exclusion of all the warm and fuzzies so, they are essentially non-factors in the outcome. Chris’s lawyers were highly skilled and clearly successful, IMO. Having watched all the arguments, I thought they would be.

I hope Chris does use this as a learning experience and grows from this horrible event. Interesting that Andi is still in contact with him.

I know it has been a hard road for him. It's a shame that he does not have a partner that he could lean on during this time of tragedy. Wish the best for him.

Chris is an example of how far your star can fall. I only hope he chooses to live his life with authenticity and, if he does, I think he'll find a companion right in Iowa!

I'm sorry to say this, and might be alone in this, but I find this interview in really bad taste. It imho seems like Chris doesn't want to let go of lime light, and live quiet life. He wants imho a redemption tour, give interviews, and gather good PR. Imho just really in bad taste, given that the other driver did die, and Chris had decided to leave the scene. Jmho.

His season has given us some of the most annoying, always-on-our-tv-screens contestants ever.

I just watched it and don’t have any trouble with Chris being able to tell his side of it. I really do believe that this has impacted his life and hopefully will help him to make better decisions. I also don’t have a problem with him getting an attorney right away. I would tell my sons the same thing, innocent or not.

@albean99 IA there were so many rumours at the time, it was a mess.

This I'm sure has affected him for life. I can see where he left because he was scared and needed to feel safe at home.

I did not read about or hear the part of the 911 call where he is counting his chest compressions. I was surprised to hear that.

ETA: or confirmation that there were no lights on the tractor, and that wasn't his truck, therefore the beer cans could have been anyone's.
