Back in February, Caitlyn Jenner was involved in a car accident that claimed the life of 69-year-old Kim Howe.

Initially, it looked as though Caitlyn would be cleared of criminal charges, and the consequences of her allegedly negligent driving would be limited to a civil suit from Howe’s stepchildren.

Now, however, TMZ is reporting that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has concluded its investigation and determined that Jenner violated the law on the day of the accident. 

The department’s 161-page report will now be passed along to the district attorney, who will determine whether or not Jenner should face vehicular manslaughter charges.

If she is convicted, Caitlyn could spend up to one year behind bars.

According to the report, Caitlyn was traveling under the speed limit, but was still driving too fast for road conditions.

Witnesses say traffic in front of Caitlyn had slowed to a crawl and she should have "either been going zero or just barely rolling."

Instead, the Sheriff’s Department says Caitlyn slammed on her brakes at the last minute and "set off a chain of events" that resulted in the fatal crash.

Insiders have claimed that Jenner has avoided questioning, but reps for the reality star say she has fully cooperated in the investigation.
