“Chris is freaking out over his trial and can’t sleep at night,” an insider from Bachelor nation tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He has no idea how a jury will react to the facts of his case. He is looking at up to 5 years in prison and he doesn’t think he can do that kind of time, he feels like it would ruin his life.”
“Chris has been stressing out over the entire situation and can’t stop thinking about that terrible evening and all the things he should have done differently,” the source continued. “He is praying that he is not found guilty, cause he can’t stand the idea of being locked away from his life and family for years.”
The incident in question occurred when Chris rear-ended a 66-year-old tractor driver named Kenneth Mosher, who died at a hospital following the crash, due to his injuries. Chris called 911 to report the incident, but left the scene. He was arrested at his home the following morning.
