LOS ANGELES, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Reality television personality Caitlyn Jenner says being put in a men's jail would be the worst case scenario if charged with manslaughter over February's fatal accident.

In an interview with Today's Matt Lauer, Jenner opened up about life after transitioning as well as the outcomes of the chain-reaction car accident which left a 69-year-old woman dead.


"I remember it happening. That's about it," she said before mentioning there are still details she can't talk about due to litigation. "A tragedy like this, you'll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can."

Although Jenner had reportedly followed all traffic laws, there is a possibility she will be charged for misdemeanor manslaughter. If convicted, she could face jail time.

"The media wants that picture, don't they?" Jenner joked. "That is the worst case scenario. I don't know. We'll see. The men's county jail. It is an enormous problem that they would put trans-women in a men's county jail."

After the crash in February, Jenner released a statement expressing her condolences to the family of the deceased. "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident," she said.


"It s a devastating tragedy, and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them."
