Rather than see her brother locked-up for life for the wrong reasons Betty spends the best part of her youth earning a law degree so that she could challenge her brother’s conviction in court. Betty’s efforts are not in vain. Through sheer determination she finally manages to legitimately overturn her brother’s conviction by presenting DNA evidence that proves his innocence. Almost twenty years after his wrongful imprisonment, Kenneth Waters walks out a free man.
