Yes, the person who purchased the car from you can go after you to try to get his money back because you sold him a car that didn't have clear title. He can come at you civilly (and then you, in turn would have a cause of action against the person who sold you the car) and he could also try to come at you criminally for fraud, arguing that you knew or should have known that the title wasn't clear.
When I say he can proceed against you criminally, that doesn't mean he would have a winning case. It seems to me that you had every reason to rely on the documents that you had, especially when they went through the state without a hitch.
You should talk to a local lawyer -- someone in general practice who handles both criminal
and civil litigation so that you can get some idea on how to protect yourself on both fronts. While it might be a good idea to file a police report
against the woman who sold you a car to go on record somewhere as having been misled about the car and not having found out until it was too late, you shouldn't do that until you've run it by a lawyer
