Now he is facing a much tougher challenge.

GM crash survivor exonerated 

Candice Anderson spent years believing that she was responsible for her boyfriend’s death. He was killed when her car crashed into a tree back in 2004. Ms. Anderson ended up pleading guilty to criminal negligent homicide, making her a convicted felon. This year, GM recalled her car along with millions of other vehicles for an ignition switch defect. It came out that GM had known about the defect when Ms. Anderson was pleading guilty, but didn’t tell her. Now a Texas court overturned her conviction and her record was cleared. Poppy Harlow has the update.

GM CEO addresses deadly crash that left the survivor in serious legal trouble

For ten years, Candice Anderson believed she killed her boyfriend when she crashed her car into a tree. She did not deny that she had taken an unprescribed Xanax pill the night before, but maintains she was not intoxicated. People in her town called her a murderer and she pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide. This year, GM recalled  her car for a defective ignition switch – one of millions of GM cars recalled for the defect. Regulators count her boyfriend's death among those caused by the defective switches. To this day, in the eyes of the law, Candice still has that felony on her record. Poppy Harlow first brought you Candice's story on AC360. She just sat down with GM CEO Mary Barra and asked if she believes Candice should be pardoned?

For a decade, she thought the crash that killed her boyfriend was her fault. Now regulators say a faulty GM ignition switch may be to blame.

So far, hundreds of people have put in death and injury claims against G-M.

Today the lawyer hired to manage the company’s compensation fund tied more deaths to the defect and said he expects the number to rise.

One of the 19 people killed was Mikale Erickson. His girlfriend, Candice Anderson, was behind the wheel when they crashed in 2004. Mikale died and Candice was seriously injured. The police report says neither was wearing a seat belt and the car's airbags did not deploy.

It was found that Candice had taken unprescribed Xanax the night before the crash, and she was prosecuted for homicide. She later pleaded guilty to felony negligent homicide and was sentenced to five years probation and fined.

'They give you a chance at your legacy.  And they're the thing that carries on beyond you and really does give you a chance to go.  You get to be young by proxy and experience their things and see the joy that they have when you really do connect with them.  There's something that's ageless – that's the good part."
