The 27-year-old was previously convicted to 28 years in Italian prison for the murder of her former roommate Meredith Kercher back in 2007.
“I am tremendously relieved and grateful for the decision of the Supreme Court of Italy,” Amanda said in a statement. “The knowledge of my innocence has given me strength in the darkest times of this ordeal.”
She continued, saying: “And throughout this ordeal, I have received invaluable support from family, friends, and strangers. To them, I say: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your kindness has sustained me. I only wish that I could thank each and every one of you in person.”

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.

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.
