More than two years after Chris Soules rear-ended a tractor, causing the crash that killed an Iowa man, he will be sentenced in a rural Iowa courtroom.

Judge Andrea Dryer is expected to hand down the sentence in rural Buchanan County, about a year after Soules avoided a trial by pleading guilty to the reduced charge of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Soules, the star of the 19th season of ABC's "The Bachelor," was originally charged with leaving the scene of a deadly accident, a felony that carries a sentence of up to five years in prison.
