She is my baby sister and I love her more than life I will not tolerate any negativity against her. Keep it nice. She isn't the one who killed Sid. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body. And would never hurt another person let alone her sister. So if u have something to say. And if u like where ur teeth are. Then keep it clean. We are all entitled to our opinions and shit but she is is amazing person anyone that's ever met her will tell u that. And if u haven't met her then u shouldn't be sayin nothing. Sorry to rant I've just seen too many people on here defend murderers and belittle my sister's. Thanks

I didn't say anything bad about her, just stated the facts. The fact is she'll be sentenced to between 6 and 30 years in prison with a little over a year and a half time served. Illinois currently has day for day credit so she is looking at spending as little as a year and a half or as much as 13 1/2 years in state prison. She will be housed at Logan Correctional Center in Lincoln Illinois, currently the only prison in Illinois that houses women. This means unfortunately, that she will be housed in a prison where murderers an rapist also reside. Part of her plea deal was that she would cooperate with the state in any other proceedings regarding this case, so Chad Bennett will most likely be re-indited on murder charges.

The one question I have is if she is indeed innocent then why did she take the plea deal (one that could send her to prison for a significant amount of time) rather than take it to trial? If she's innocent than that means the case against her is obviously weak, so why then would she plead guilty? I mean no disrespect, but seeing as you are her brother perhaps you could give a better explanation as to why she plead guilty.

I feel as if we all have our own opinions on regarding each individual involved within this case. However I don't understand why there are multiple threads concerning this topic. Yes it's news, yes people care, but when individuals make threads and then pretty much say, but don't comment negatively. I get quite confused, because we're all human, of coarse someone is going to have a negative comment at one point in time. And I also feel like individuals shouldn't try to learn more about this, then what is announced. Not a single person needs to know and understand why certain individuals took certain deals. That's beside the point. She probably wants it over with, her reasoning is of none of anyone's concern.

I'm not being rude to anyone, I'm just pointing out things that caught my attention while skimming through.

I agree,in my opinion she is the worst of all due to the fact that she unlocked the doors,police report says she even used her own car.then they put her in the water.now at some point they shot sidnee and her sis didnt hear?did she realy not know?of course she did,she got a plea deal so she can play innocent.her sister on fb talking about fish eating her,my god im shocked and disgusted.at least the good lord will be with sidnee now.

Maybe she didn't suspect that her boyfriend and his friends would murder her sister? How is that such a far-fetched theory? No one has lived her life or gone through everything she's gone through, so really only she truly knows what she was thinking at the time
