I have been so glued to this case for so many years!!!
Verdict was just read, Amanda is a FREE GIRL!!
Just saw this on FB and had to look it up. Not sure how I haven't heard of this case...so can you briefly fill me in?
I haven't followed it closely enough to know if this is good or bad..
I'm surprised. I haven't really follow it veryclosely.
This article sort of caught me up....http://gma.yahoo.com/amanda-knox-is-innocent.html
She is an American girl that was charged & convicted of killing her British roommate in a drug & sex fueled murder. Knox's Italian boyfriend at the time was also charged & convicted in the murder.
The original case was based on evidence that would have never convicted someone in the States, mostly bad confessions & badly tainted evidence. Then it seemed that the Italian courts where after her & just trying to save face by keeping her there.
She finally got her case reheard & she just got a not-guilty verdict about an hour ago. She will be leaving Italy today....
It has been watched worldwide.
Lesley - thanks...makes sense now. Crazy story.
I've seen the coverage of this story here and there over the years. From what I know, she should be let go... and compensated for being wrongfully imprisoned for 4 years...
Yes, it's been very crazy! Even my husband got wrapped up in this one and that hardly ever happens. I am glad they freed her. From what I saw on the tainted evidence and such it was clear the investigation was botched. I guess we can't really say for sure if she did it or not but the way the case was handled was totally wrong and she deserved to be let go.
