After a Decade of Guilt, a Woman is Cleared in the Death of her Boyfriend and General Motors Admits Guilt

On November 15, 2004, Candice Anderson lost her boyfriend in a car crash caused by a defective ignition switch in her General Motors- (GM-) made Saturn Ion, but it would be years until the 21-year-old would know the cause of the tragic accident.

For a decade, Anderson wrestled with guilt over the loss of her boyfriend, Gene Mikale Erickson, believing she had caused his death. She was behind the wheel when the vehicle suddenly lost control and crashed into a tree. Anderson suffered severe injuries, including a lacerated liver, but her physical injuries seemed the least of her problems. She was charged with criminally negligent homicide, which she pleaded guilty to in October 2007. Anderson’s parents liquidated their 401(k) to pay for a lawyer for their daughter. Though Anderson managed to avoid jail, she spent five years on probation, paid more than $10,000 in fines and restitution and struggled to find work, according to The New York Times (Times).

Appeals Court Upholds Verdict After Allegations of Jury Confusion and Gossip Outside of the Jury Room

A New Jersey appeals court has upheld the verdict of an Ocean City jury despite a possible jury misunderstanding and accusations that one juror called the plaintiff in the personal injury case a liar during discussions outside of the jury room.

The plaintiff in the case sued the driver of a vehicle who allegedly rear-ended her vehicle in 2010 causing the plaintiff to sustain whiplash injuries to her neck. After learning that the jury might not have understood what evidence it was allowed to consider, and that a juror purportedly called her a liar, the plaintiff requested either post-verdict questioning of the jurors or a new trial, but the judge in the case threw out her requests, according to the Law Journal.
