This does not seem so bad for Betty as in her 2015 memoir, Telling On Myself she wrote, “I am basically happy here. I’m safe and there’s kind of freedom in that.”

Deputy District Attorney Richard Sachs argued at Betty’s parole hearing in 2017: “Betty Broderick is an unrepentant woman.

“She has no remorse and zero insight into the killings. She just says ‘they drove me to do this.'”

In an interview with Oprah, Betty’s youngest son Rhett said: “She’s a nice lady. Everyone here would like her. If they spoke with her on any topic other than my dad. Keeping her in prison isn’t really helping her. She’s not a danger to society – the only two people she was a danger to are dead.”
