DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – A judge in Van Zandt County has reversed a guilty plea and manslaughter conviction for a woman who was the victim of one of General Motor’s faulty ignition switches.

Candice Anderson pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge to avoid prison time. She got five years probation and was tabbed a felon for the 2004 wreck near Canton, Texas that killed her fiance.

According to court records, Anderson had neither drugs or alcohol in her system, but she did have a trace of an anti anxiety medicine.

Now prosecutors and the judge agree, the fatal accident wasn’t really Anderson’s fault, rather the blame for the wreck lies with a faulty ignition switch in her 2004 Saturn Ion.

This morning, presented with new evidence and the concurrence by prosecutors, a judge set Anderson’s conviction aside and found her not guilty.

Anderson’s attorney Matthew Arnold says she can now put her life back together.

“She’s still pretty upset that GM let her ‘hang out there’ and let her go through probation when they essentially knew it was their fault” said Arnold.

Anderson still has a pending lawsuit against General Motors.
