Are you kidding? Are you serious??!! How many sisters and brothers went to school to get a law degree to help Kenny besides Betty? Did any of them pay tuition for Betty's education? Your comments tend to be a bit nonsensical. Some family members did not even believe he was innocent, and you think this woman should have split this money up evenly? Nonsense! She also had children she needed to take care of as well. Still she shared with her family. And how in the world do you think this woman KNEW her brother would have an accident? She didn't. She was NOT trying to get anything for her brother but freedom and an opportunity for him to live a normal life with the love of his family. This woman was not some greedy person! How dare you think so ridiculously about a person who has dedicated her life to another person.

Kenny spent almost 19 years in prison for something ha did NOT do.
Kenny had 8 siblings not just one. Kenny's younger sister worked on this case from the day he was found guilty of a crime he DID NOT
COMMIT. his younger sister was never mentioned in any of the media.
She did this out of love. Later Bettyanne w/ 2 yr degree decided
to become an attorney. With the help of Barry Scheck, Kenny was released from this nightmare. The estate of Kennethy Waters recieved almost 15 million dollars. Bettyanne was suppost to split this with Kenny's Mom,Daughter and all siblings. when the money came in,Bettyanne decided to keep it all except a few thousand here and there. She always stated that she was representing our whole family.I think the judge award such a large amount because so many family members lot 19 yrs without him.
WHY DID BETTYANNE TRY TO KEEP IT ALL?
DOES THIS JUDGE KNOW WHAT SHE DID WITH THE MONEY?
THE JUDGE WILL SOON FIND OUT!!!!!!!!!!
SHE WAS LOOKING OUT FOR HERSELF THE WHOLE TIME, SHE HAD $$$$IN HER EYES

It sounds like to me that there were many greedy, nonsupportive family members who wanted something after Bettyanne did all of the work to get Kenny out.

She didn't keep all the money. And she did do it out of love for him.

At the end of the movie they said Betty Ann still worked at the pub she was part ownership in.. I believe the real Betty A nn loved her brother! They seemed so close if the movie prtrayed it correctly.. I sure hope she at least gave his daughter some of the money..The mother doesn't seem to deserve any!! Life is so full of heartache!! Such sad things can happen to people. Kenneth waters R.I.P. finally!

For all you stupid people out there Betty Anne did deserve the money....she didn't sacrifice 18 yrs of her life for a payout...nobody else had the guts to do what she did...she proved that blood is thicker than water...there are some dumb people out there!!!!
I've gotta say, I agree with you. Of course no one knows all of the details, but it sure seems that everyone else, not only gave up, but litterally turned their backs on, not only Kenny, but Bettyanne. And, from the movies perspective, the even criticized her for doing it. Why would she then turn around and pay them for the criticism?

I think that was a good thing his sister did for him. But that was sad for a innocent man to miss 18 years of his life.They should have lock up that crooked ass cop !

Just saw the movie on LMN. Disgusted at what I was seeing but not surprised.

So the police chief and the female officer framed her yet in the movie epilogue it said they couldn't prosecute the officer? I hope she got sued , gets sued and spends her remaining days if she is still alive in court.

I don't know who is worse in these wrongful conviction cases; the testa lying cops or prosecutors and judges that won't vacate a conviction in face of over whelming obvious evidence of innocence.

It's not really that surprising police take these actions, despicable yes, happens often no but it happens.
This story is so sad, it effected many lives. Lives that could have been lived normally, without the state causing so much pain due to incompetence or criminal intentions.
Though it's sad, I'm glad to know Kenny managed to live a free life after this, in a short space of time.
It's a sad and inspirational story and Betty, what a lady. Everyone deserves a loving family like that.
The other sad part about this story is the true perpetrator hasn't been found and convicted.
It's only my opinion, against my own fears of data protection, that DNA for everyone in society should be recorded

Has everyone here who's made a comment about the money Betty Ann was supposedly "AFTER", realize ALL THE TIME, LOVE , KINDNESS , DEDICATION and HARD, HARD WORK (working , going to school AND raising children) she displayed over those 18 years?!!?!!! NOT to mention ALL that it cost her - her MARRIAGE and time with her precious children??!?
This woman was an 😇 angel! EVERYONE should be so fortunate to have anyone in our lives during such a travesty and heart ache in their lifetime, to show that kind of unconditional love and to have sacrificed so, so much!!!

Incredible....simply incredible AND heart warming to know at least there ARE "angels on Earth" that walk among us. Few, yes, but at least a few.
