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.

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.
