GM hides defect and allows woman to go to jail
Texas judge cleared Candice Anderson of her negligent homicide plea after her Saturn Ion crashed in 2004, killing her fiancée Michael Erickson. CBS reports that prosecutors charged her with manslaughter due to “a trace amount of anti-anxiety medication in her system.” CBS reports that Texas prosecutors are considering bringing criminal charges against GM, which was aware of the defect before the accident.
The New York Times notes that he had previously asked GM CEO Mary Barra and GM’s top lawyer, Michael P. Millikin to ask Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) to pardon Anderson, though both declined.
