“A Conversation With Betty Anne Waters” draws local media attention
April 12, 2011
Over the weekend OCU LAW played host to special guest Betty Anne Waters, the woman whose search for justice inspired the film Conviction starring Hilary Swank and Sam Rockwell. Waters was a guest at Saturday night’s black-tie fundraiser “A Night for the Innocent,” which was presented by Chesapeake Energy Corp.
Waters also spoke at the law school on Sunday. In a forum open to the public, she told the story of her brother Kenneth Waters, who was convicted in Massachusetts of murder. Waters pursued a B.A. and earned a law degree in order to free her brother, who was released in 2001. Local ABC affiliate KOCO attended the event and interviewed Waters.
