According to Variety, Detectives have completed their six-month investigation and are set to present evidence to the prosecution that could lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against the Caitlyn Jenner. Because there’s “nothing really egregious” in the case, Det. Richard Curry of the Sheriff’s Dept. said there’s a “50/50” chance that she will be charged.
A misdemeanor manslaughter charge usually carries a one-year county jail sentence.
Jenner was driving down Pacific Coast Highway on Feb. 7 at an unsafe speed when her Escalade hit another vehicle, causing a chain-reaction crash, authorities said.
“My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident,” Jenner said in a statement a day after the accident. “It is a devastating tragedy, and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
While Caitlyn, if charged, could face a misdemeanor – the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. says it is not recommending that the District Attorney charge Ms. Jenner. TMZ reported, the 161-page Sheriff’s Dept. report concludes Jenner violated the misdemeanor manslaughter law by driving at an unsafe speed. The Sheriff’s Dept. will submit its report to the L.A. County D.A. next Wednesday and prosecutors will then decide whether to file charges.
