In this Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 photo, Andrea Waple stands by the Flint River near her home outside of Columbiaville, Mich. Her older sister, Barbara Hernandez, has been in prison for over two decades after she was sentenced to life without parole. "Barbara always tried to take care of me even though she didn't know how," Waple says. "We'd get into trouble about who knows what and because my mom was mad, she'd come home from work and hit us with a belt. It got to the point where we're pretending to be crying to make her stop."
