Janet said no, but she still didn’t know about the hidden cameras. “We have pictures of you putting cyanide in lunch food.” Janet didn’t respond, she wasn’t really scared of what’s going to happen. I mean she had problems that have came back. Mr. Morales has looked at Janet’s history records, which were really bad. Janet finally confessed that it was her. She will be sentenced 20 years to life
