(Newser) – Caitlyn Jenner won't be going to a men's prison as she feared she might. The Los Angeles district attorney has concluded there isn't enough evidence to charge her with a crime in the February car accident that resulted in the death of a 70-year-old woman. "We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would be inappropriate," Jenner's attorney tells People. According to court papers, authorities determined that Jenner was driving below the speed limit and "minimally slower" than victim Kimberly Howe when Jenner rear-ended Howe, pushing her into oncoming traffic. Howe had braked after the Prius ahead of her stopped suddenly. Authorities determined they could not "prove beyond a reasonable doubt" that Jenner's "conduct was unreasonable." Click for more.
