“The case will be submitted to the district attorney next week,” said a police official.
Detectives have completed their six-month investigation and are set to present evidence to the prosecution that could lead to a misdemeanour manslaughter charge against Caitlyn. Because there’s “nothing really egregious” in the case, Richard Curry of the Sheriff’s Department said there’s a “50/50” chance that she will be charged, reports variety.com.
A misdemeanour manslaughter charge usually carries a one-year county jail sentence.
Caitlyn was driving down Pacific Coast Highway on February 7 at an unsafe speed when her Escalade hit another vehicle, causing a chain-reaction crash, authorities said. Curry charged that Caitlyn’s violation of the vehicular manslaughter law ultimately led to a death.
If she is charged, her docu-series “I Am Cait” will not be affected, as the first season has wrapped production, with the finale set to air on September 13.
