Sheriff’s investigators in Los Angeles plan to push for Caitlyn Jenner to be charged with manslaughter. Kim Howe, 69, lost her life last February in a car accident, which the transgender star was the cause of.
In my opinion, I think no matter how popular you are or how much money you have, you aren’t above the law. In a perfect world that is how it would be, but Jenner will never see one day of the inside of any jail. Too much celebrity and fame to be put behind bars. She/he might be charged, and even convicted, but never go to jail.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida says investigators found that Jenner was driving “unsafe for the prevailing road conditions” because her SUV rear-ended a Lexus, pushing it into oncoming traffic.
The fatal crash occurred months before Caitlyn Jenner’s transition. She was formerly known as Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and Kim Kardashian’s stepfather.
Jenner was hauling an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind her Cadillac Escalade on Feb. 7 when she steered to avoid cars slowing for a traffic light in front of her on Pacific Coast Highway.
Jenner’s SUV rear-ended two cars, pushing a Lexus into oncoming traffic.
The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when her car was struck head-on by a Hummer.
The case will be presented to prosecutors for final review next week, Nishida said. The district attorney’s office will determine what charges Jenner ultimately faces.
If convicted of such a charge, Jenner could face up to one year in county jail.
Jenner’s attorney Blair Berk to declined comment.
When you’re behind the wheel, especially one with a heavy trailer, and you’re not safely driving and paying attention at a short distance, it’s totally your fault when you kill someone.
Take away all the glamor and T.V. shows for just a minute, and pretend Jenner is a everyday civilian. The public would be outraged that someone killed another person because of driving too fast and not paying attention. Everyone would be pushing for longer than a year in jail, BUT it is “Call Me Cait”, so let’s show this brave “hero” some love and give her a break.
First of all, this is no hero by any standards, and if anything, Jenner should be made an example out of. Showing no one is above the law and treated equal. Hopefully the “Call Me Cait” show is taken off the air and he/she goes to jail.
