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.

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.

Amanda Knox Freed After Jury Overturns Murder Conviction

Amanda Knox breaks down in tears after a jury overturns her murder conviction on Monday (October 3) in Perugia, Italy.

The 24-year-old from Seattle, Wash., and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, won their appeal after they were initially sentenced to 26 years and 25 years in jail, respectively, for the 2007 stabbing of Amanda‘s roommate Meredith Kercher.

Earlier in the day, Amanda told the appellate court jury of eight Italians that she “did not do the things they said I did. I did not kill, rape or steal. I was not there.”

Amanda and Raffaele spent nearly four years in prison but both maintained their innocence in the brutal murder of the 21-year-old British student.

“We’re thankful Amanda‘s nightmare is over. We’re grateful for the support we have received from all over the world,” her sister, Deanna, read in a statement after the verdict was read.
