The Buchanan County Sheriff told Us Weekly that Chris has been charged with a Class D felony, which means he could end up with jail time, fines, or probations. However, Chris's lawyers have already stated that they don't think he's guilty, so it's pretty clear they're going to fight this charge.

Here's his legal team's statement to Us

Soules' 911 call, released yesterday, proved that the initial knee-jerk coverage of this accident was incorrect. While initial reports suggested Soules fled the scene, the 911 call confirms that Soules in fact was the one who contacted law enforcement immediately. During the call, he clearly identified himself and explained his role in the terrible accident. Soules attempted to resusitate Mr. Mosher and remained on the scene with him until emergency medical personnel arrived.
