Amanda Knox on Murder Charge: I'll Never Willingly Go Back to Italy, It's Not Fair

Amanda Knox sits down for an interview with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America on Friday (January 31) in New York City.

The 26-year-old was just convicted to 28 years in Italian prison for the murder of her former roommate Meredith Kercher back in 2007 in a new retrial. Amanda had already served four years, but the decision was overturned in 2011.

“I couldn’t believe what I was hearing,” Amanda said on the show. “I did not expect this to happen. I really expected so much more from the Italian justice system. They found me innocent once before.”

“I will never go willingly back to the place where … I’m going to fight this to the very end. It’s not right, and it’s not fair,” Amanda added.

In order for Amanda to be jailed for the crime, she would have to be extradited to Italy. Legal experts say that it is not likely this will happen, however, because United States law states that a citizen cannot be tried twice on the same charge.
