Amanda Knox NOT GUILTY of murder (VIDEO)

Amanda Knox found not guilty by Italian court.

The murder of Meredith Kercher occurred in Perugia, Italy, on 1 November 2007. Kercher, aged 21 at the time of her death, was a British university exchange student from Coulsdon,, South London. She shared an upstairs flat with three other young women. She wassexually assaulted and stabbed. Property belonging to her was also stolen.

Rudy Guede, a resident of Perugia, was convicted on 28 October 2008 of the sexual assault and murder of Kercher. His fast-track conviction was upheld, and he is now serving a reduced sentence of 16 years. Raffaele Sollecito, an Italian student, and Amanda Knox, an American student and a flatmate of Kercher, were convicted of sexual assault and murder in a separate trial on 4 December 2009. They were given sentences of 25 and 26 years respectively. Knox and Sollecito have appealed. Their appeal commenced in December 2010 and is scheduled to end in late 2011.

In Italy the prosecution can appeal this verdict, so it is assumed Knox will leave the country as soon as possible.

    Italian justice–an oxymoron. Good for Amanda. Don’t get arrested in Italy.

      I graduated high school in Naples and I can assure our readers you are right. Don’t get arrested in Italy.

    Great news! Did this happen today(Oct. 3)? A long article in Rolling Stone describes her background, as well as the Italian judicial process. I hope she gets on the next plane west, before the prosecution files its appeal.

      She best do that quickly, although I understand she and her family are spending the night in a hotel before boarding a flight the hell out of there.
