With his July 19th trial date, fast approaching, Chris Soules can rest assured on one thing, he won’t be facing any charges related to drinking or drugs. His toxicology report is clean.
Since that fateful April 24th accident, stories and speculation have been rampant that Soules fled the scene of the accident that took the life of Iowa farmer 66-year old Kenneth Mosher because he had been drinking. All evidence certainly pointed that this may have been the case. There were beer containers, both open and unopened, in the truck he was driving and on the ground in the area of the accident where Soules rear-ended a tractor driven by Mosher. But, according to documents filed by Soules’ team of lawyers, the blood and urine sample given for testing have come back totally clean in.
“A report issued by the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation’s (DCI) Criminalistics Laboratory, Mr. Soules specimens were negative for drugs and alcohol. The DCI conducted thorough toxicology texting on two separate samples — his urine and blood — and conclusively determined no detectable amounts of alcohol or drugs were in either specimen.”
This means that Chris won’t have to face any additional charges of operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI) or any other alcohol-related charges. But, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t drinking, that just means that he didn’t have any alcohol in his system. Chris had fled the scene, refusing to come out of his home for several hours until law enforcement showed up with a warrant.
But instead of celebrating this ‘victory’ Soules’ lawyers want everyone to stop calling Kenneth Mosher the “victim”. The submitted documents stating, “Mr. Soules, like all other accused persons in the State of Iowa, is presumed innocent. . . The State has not charged Mr. Soules with any crime asserting he is criminally responsible for the death of the decedent. Thus, it is wholly improper for the state or any witness to refer to the decendent as a ‘victim’ since such a reference inaccurately characterizes the events relevant to the instant charge.”
Wow! Just, Wow!
