Iowa — A farmer who appeared on ABC's The Bachelor has pleaded guilty in a fatal crash last year near his home in northern Iowa.

In an agreement with prosecutors announced Tuesday, 36-year-old Chris Soules pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of leaving the scene of a serious injury accident. The misdemeanor charge carries a penalty of up to two years in prison. Soules' attorney says he could also get a deferred judgment and no jail time when he's sentenced in January.

Soules had been charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash, a felony that carries up to five years behind bars.

Soule was arrested after he rear-ended a tractor in April 2017, killing 66-year-old Kenny Mosher. Soules called 911 and waited for first responders, but left before police arrived.
