Caitlyn Jenner could be charged with Vehicular Manslaughter for the accident that killed Kimberly Howe. The family of Howe is seeking a civil award in the accident already but the criminal charge could be much worse.
“Jenner’s case is going to go to the district attorney next week to see if it is worthy of a misdemeanor violation for involuntary manslaughter,” Det. Richard Curry said.
Bruce Jenner (the accident was prior to Bruce becoming Caitlyn) was driving a black Cadillac SUV on February 7 that was the third vehicle involved in a multiple rear-end collision on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, police have said. Kimberly Howe, 69, was driving her Lexus when Jenner’s SUV hit her car from behind, sending it into oncoming traffic where it was hit by another SUV.
The charge would be a very serious one that could include a prison sentence if She is proven guilty. Transgender inmates are typically put in with their original sex, meaning Caitlyn would be in a male prison. Transgender inmates are more common than most People think especially in California.
