Family Sins a True Story?

Is the movie Family Sins inspired by a true story or is it just a fictional story?
I ask this question because my mom told me the movie was based on a true story but sometimes she says that and it's not true. So Is family sins inspired or based on a real life story?

Yes it is.

“Family Sins” is a true story on the family of Brenda Geck. The movie stars Kirstie Alley, Will Patton and Deanna Milligan. Geck lived a lie in her community. Geck was a model citizen on the outside. Geck had a husband and children. Geck showed she tried to share her blessings by sharing her home to foster children.

Geck worked as a real estate agent. On Sunday, Geck and her family went to
church and projected a good image with her charity work. The Mayor and police even praised Geck for her contribution to the local society.

Marie Devereaux, the foster child, and her mother, lived with Brenda Geck and her
family. One day, Marie Devereaux escaped from the Geck household and went to see the assistant attorney general, Philip Rothman.

Devereaux told Rothman the truth about Brenda Geck behind closed doors. Devereaux accused Geck of robbery, rape, arson, insurance fraud and kidnapping. Rothman started investigations to gather evidence against Brenda Geck.

Rothman soon discovered how Geck controlled her children and those under her by using threats. Rothmans was surprised how Geck fooled everyone with her larger than life public image.

It totally is. It actually says it before the movie starts, if you didn't see it just pause it a look it for yourself.
Definitely a true story.
