BREAKING NEWS POST
Just seconds ago, American exchange student Amanda Knox was found “NOT GUILTY” of the murder of her Perugia, Italy roommate Meredith Kercher.
However, Knox was found “GUILTY“ of defamation for accusing an innocent man, and sentenced to 3 years in prison and a nominal fine. But citing time served, she is to be released from prison immediately, and allowed to leave Italy.
Knox, convicted in 2007 of the murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, has served 4 years of a 26 year sentence in an Italian prison in Perugia, Italy. However, DNA evidence in her case was ruled by the judge in her appeal as “unreliable.”
Speaking in Italian to the court at the end of her trial, Amanda said: “I want to go home. I want to go back to my life. I don’t want my future taken away from me for something I didn’t do because I am innocent…”
Now, finally, she is able to live those spoken wishes.
