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?
