If convicted Jenner could face up to a year in county jail. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has completed its investigation into the car crash that Caitlyn Jenner was involved in this February, which left a woman dead. According to the report Jenner was not speeding, but she was still driving at an unsafe speed. Jenner's vehicle rear-ended two cars, pushing Kim Howe's car into oncoming traffic, which resulted in Howe's death.

Entertainment news website, TMZ had previously reported that Jenner would be unlikely to face felony charges, however if she is convicted on the misdemeanor charge she could face up to a year in county jail. Detectives are recommending that the district attorney charge Jenner with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. 

Jessica Steindorff, the other driver involved in the crash was driving with a suspended license, and could also be charged with a crime. Jenner is also being sued by Howe's step-children in a wrongful death lawsuit. They are claiming that Jenner was travelling at unsafe speeds and was negligent when she rear-ended the car, causing the death of their step-mother.
