Caitlyn Jenner Will Not Be Charged With Vehicular Manslaughter
Los Angeles County District Attorney has decided NOT to charge Caitlyn Jenner with vehicular manslaughter or any other crime in connection with the fatal car crash this past summer.
The D.A. has rejected the case, saying she was not speeding, she hit the brakes though belatedly, and her conduct was not “unreasonable” based on all the facts.
Jenner was driving inattentively when she slammed into a Lexus, sending the car into oncoming traffic where it struck a Hummer. The Lexus driver died at the scene.
The accident was put under a microscope … the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. investigated the accident for almost 6 months before submitting a 161-page report to the D.A. The case was reviewed not by the D.A.’s Van Nuys satellite office — which would normally handle such cases — but by the Major Crimes Unit at D.A. headquarters in downtown L.A.
Cait’s attorney had this to say about the tragic accident after getting his client off:
Jenner’s lawyer, Blair Berk, tells TMZ, ‘We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing.” Berk adds, “We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would not be appropriate.”
Looks like Caitlyn won’t be joining the OITNB cast.
