Caitlyn Jenner Will Not Be Charged for The Fatal Car Crash
Caitlyn Jenner will not face charges for the fatal accident she caused nearly a year ago.The Los Angeles District Attorney has decided not to charge Caitlyn Jenner following the fatal crash that left one woman dead, arguing that the office will not be able to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Jenner was at fault. According to TMZ, which obtained a copy of the District Attorney's recommendation, the office felt that despite her speed may have been unsafe for the road conditions, her conduct was not "unreasonable". From TMZ:
While driving on PCH and towing a dune buggy, suspect rear ended victim’s vehicle causing the victim’s vehicle to veer into opposing traffic where victim’s car was hit by a second vehicle, resulting in her death. Suspect was traveling at a speed slightly below posted speed limit and minimally slower than victim. At 4.2 seconds before impact, victim engaged her brakes and started to slow. Suspect disengaged gas pedal and his car began to slow. Suspect engaged brakes within 1.9 to 1.5 seconds before impact. Crime requires violation of misdemeanor or infraction. Only possible violation is VC 22350, a violation of the basic speed law. Crime also requires ordinary negligence. Based on facts, cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that suspect’s conduct was unreasonable.The explanation fails to take into account Los Angeles Sheriff's department argument that Jenner should be charged with vehicular manslaughter, a misdemeanor charge that would have put Caitlyn Jenner behind bars for up to one year in prison and/or a monetary fine. But, Caitlyn Jenner is still facing several civil law suits stemming from the accident.
