Amanda Knox Found Guilty of Murder After Retrial, Sentenced to 28 Years

Amanda Knox Found Guilty of Murder After Retrial, Sentenced to 28 Years

Amanda Knox, an American who was thrust into the spotlight after going through a trial for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher in November 2007, was just found guilty of the crime once again in a retrial.

Back in 2007, Meredith was found partially naked in her own blood in the home she shared with Amanda, 26, in Perugia, Italy. Amanda‘s ex boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was also accused of murder, CNN reports.

Back in 2011, Amanda, who had served four years in prison in Italy, won appeals and had her convictions overturned.

Amanda, who has been found guilty for 28.5 years, and Raffaele, who was sentenced for 25 years, would have to return to Italy to serve their sentences.

United States law states that a citizen cannot be tried twice on the same charge, and legal experts say it’s unlikely she will be extradited because of it.

    @Ucas: Shut up, you’re an idiot. The Italian justice system is a joke…everyone laughs at their incompetence…they’re just trying to save face. The evidence showed that she couldn’t have done it. Do your homework.

    Sad story, no matter from which side you look at it. But, she is no celeb, she’s no actress or singer. She doesn’t belong on this site.

    I think she and her former boyfriend are guilty also. But she will probably never serve a day in jail because she is a cute american.

    I think the country that released her knew that she wouldn’t be coming back if there was a re-trial. This way they get to appease the locals ( and the family of the victim) and be done with it. I don’t think anyone has had all the evidence ( outside of those directly involved) to make a decision as to whether she was guilty or not. Tabloids and newspaper aren’t a reliable source for the details of something like this occurring in another country. They only know what they can eke out. Her family, although they had a difficult journey, their child is still alive and now living free.

    I think she is innocent and was very sheltered when she went to Italy. However, she did make lots of mistakes and I can understand why people don’t like her but it was due to the way she came across. She was a bit weird but not a cold blooded murderer.
    Its clear that Rudy guy killed MK.
    I feel really bad for her ex boyfriend who is in Italy now and is probably being taken to jail right now.

    another psycopath who cant tell a the truth to save her life..she tells you want she thinks you want to hear..

    As someone who has lived internationally as a student, I do not see myself comprising the truth if a roommate is murdered, even if I hate that roommate, murder is serious and lying and pointing fingers elsewhere only makes you look GUILTY

    Also remember Natalie in Aruba..and I was suprised her friends let her go off with a stranger in Aruba..been in Costa Rica in a similar situation and my friends would not let anyone of us wonder off. They all came to the rescue when I was a approached by a peruvian drug lord…yep he offered us ALL accomodation and we refused and they made sure I went back with them to the hotel

    Do not travel with people who will leave you in the lurch and do not room with evil little girls….

    Legal experts know nothing. She will be sent back to Italy. Or the next time an Italian Mafia member runs off to hide in Italy the Italian government will give the middle finger to the United States and not send them back.

    @Duh:

    SO because a justice system countinues to seek the truth, its a JOKE?
    Even if you think its a joke, what about OJ, Zimmerman, countless black men falsely imprisoned for looking sideways at a white woman, is this the kind of justice system you want the rest of the world to uphold?

    Now what about simply requesting honesty of Amanda Knox so Merediths family can have some peace.?

    A girl WAS BRUTALLY MURDERED and all you can think of is how bad an entire justice system OLDER than that of the US is a joke?

    miapocca Says:

    @JMO:
    SHELTERED…did you not read anything about her lifestyle..try some of the local udub ..Washington blogs…certainly an innocent does not hand her panties for any male dog to chase or engage in smoking and sniffing any substance to make her high..

    INNOCENT and SHELTERED by your definition is truly amazing…

    miapocca Says:

    You know , it might be that Rudi gave up the entire story as did sollecito, because he ex stayed in italy..he had rich parents, he could have run off to south american etc

    She will answer to a higher power…where are OJ, ZIMMERMAN and VAN DER SLOOT…

    @13 Says:

    You are confusing two issues. If you think Amanda is innocent that does not mean you don’t care that Meredith was murdered.

    Yeah Says:

    @Guest: Please…to find someone guilty after they’ve already been acquitted? What a bunch of morons.

    Mary Says:

    @Yeah:
    I agree. I feel for Meredith, Amanda, Raffael and their families.

    OMG Says:

    @miapocca: Yes, we know she was brutally murdered, but that doesn’t mean she did it…duh. I thought she was guilty in the beginning, until they presented all of the evidence. There were things that they accused her of, that would have been physically impossible. What does that have to do with Simpson & Zimmerman? Their version of double jeopardy is a JOKE. The victim’s family is out for blood, not justice. Alot of it has to do with the fact that she’s American.

    I’m surprised they found her guilty, they don’t have the murder weapon to connect it to her.

    @miapocca: I’ve been to Italy, and it is the joke of Europe, if not the world. It has nothing to do with how OLD it is. Where did you go to school, anyway? The whole country is inefficient, broken down and incompetent.

    Actually I am not, because the media and those ready to take a shot at the italian justice system their best to forget that Merediths DIED and if AK is not guilty she did not HELP in the investigation either but lied to make the investigation more difficult……..

    What happens in the media when a “white blonde american kid” disappears. they put several family photos of their adorable angel to pull at your heart strings..

    Does Meredith deserve any less, and why did Amanda Knox have to lie as she did continuously without any care for the family……she should be thankful Meredith mother is not Beth Halloway Twitty..or know that women will have a shot gun in her face

    She is quite obviously a psycho.

    @Muindo:

    And I am sure the American justice system is the best…talk to a BLACK MAN in ALABAMA..i am sure they will prefer the Italian justice system anyday to the that of the American system…

    I have been to america too and even lived for years and I will not stop for the police in a secluded dark spot….
