A True-Life Story Of and About Conviction


    Hour 2

    Kenneth and Betty Anne Waters

    BETTY ANNE WATERS rescued her brother from a life of prison after he served nearly twenty years after a wrongful murder and armed robbery conviction. Actor SAM ROCKWELL is portraying Kenneth Waters in the new film, “Conviction,” directed by TONY GOLDWYN. Betty Anne Waters, a high school drop-out at the time of her brother’s incarceration in 1983, promised her brother she would go back to school, get her law degree and help him out of prison. She was successful in 2001, but Kenneth died about six months after his release. WATERS, ROCKWELL and GOLDWYN are coming into the Radio Times studio to discuss this story with Marty.
