Caitlyn Jenner, the star of the E! reality show “I Am Cait,” may be charged with manslaughter. “Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives will present evidence next week to prosecutors that could lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner in a deadly chain-reaction crash earlier this year on Pacific Coast Highway,” the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Times adds: “Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed Feb. 7 when her Escalade hit Kim Howe’s car, ultimately leading to the deadly crash, said Det. Richard Curry of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.”
Curry noted that Jenner was not exceeding the speed limit, but indicated that Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed given the road conditions at the time.
“The evidence will be presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office next week,” the Times notes. “Prosecutors will review the case and decide whether to formally charge Jenner. Typically, a single misdemeanor manslaughter charge could carry a sentence of a year in jail.”
