Amanda Knox Spotted With Ex-Boyfriend in NYC
UPI ^ | June 20, 2013 | Caroline Lee

Posted on 06/21/2013 10:31:09 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Amanda Knox was seen meeting her ex-boyfriend Raffaelle Sollecito in New York on Tuesday.

Knox's mother followed behind the former couple in their rendezvous, but there was no sign of the boyfriend Knox reportedly lives with in Seattle.

The meeting came just after they were ordered to return to Italy for a retrial over the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

The judges in Italy's top court is looking to rule out the possibility that Kercher died during a sex game that went wrong.

The two were seen hugging, and Sollecito put his arm around her, sparking rumors that the two are back together. The move for reexamination in court has led to concerns over whether the two should be in contact.

Knox did not comment on the ruling or whether she planned to attend trial in Italy. Earlier reports said Knox was planning to stay in the U.S. rather than return to Italy to face justice. Sollecito, an Italian, has no choice but to return.

The court overturned the couple's acquittal, releasing Knox after four years of her 26-year prison sentence. The court said releasing Knox and Sollecito was "illogical" and riddled with "deficiencies [and] contradictions."

Yes, we do. If Italian authorities request extradition, the U.S. government would have to move to extradite her. She could challenge the extradition in court. But it’s my understanding she would have to demonstrate the extradition would violate her constitutional rights.

It’s still entirely possible that she didn’t do it and wasn’t more involved than being an accessory.

However, to be willing to continue to see somebody who probably did the killing is showing absolutely no regard for the victim.

I personally could not continue a relationship with such a person.

Shouldn’t that be pretty easy to accomplish? The Italians are going to keep trying until they can get a court to convict her. If the standard is by “constitutional rights,” presumably our constitution, I don’t see how they could extradite her. The Italians can go to hell with their legal system.

He’s probably still under her control. She was the mastermind.

She probably does not think that he committed the murder.

Rudy Guede, who is currently serving time in prison, had his DNA all over the murder scene. When questioned about it, he said that he had a ‘date’ with Kercher but ended up fighting a ‘mysterious Italian’ who attacked her and framed him for it (because he was racist, of course)

I don’t think Amanda or her ex-boyfriend had anything to do with the murder. Rudy Guede’s DNA was all over the crime scene including Meredith Kircher’s body and room. Only his. He’s in jail. Case closed. And Italy is so brilliant Guede gets out in 16 years so he can kill again.

She was in jail too, until she scammed her way out. She will kill again. Or have some guy kill at her orders again.

Did you see the crime scene photos? Why was there no DNA in that bloody room besides Meredith's and Rudy Guede’s?

I didn’t see any crime scene photos, but I have always thought that she was involved. I thought that the US was not going to extradite her though, because she had been exonerated, and it would be considered double jeopardy under US law. The case was a mess, badly prosecuted after being badly investigated. Enough is enough. We will probably never know the truth.

I suspect that the meeting was to discuss the upcoming re-trial and what, if anything that either one could add to help the defense. No big deal.

Having seen her interview a couple months back... it’s pretty clear this was a case of an abusive judicial system assisted by a corrupt manipulative police arm.

This young woman has been seriously harmed as a result of what happened to her.

People have 3 reaction to stress or trauma... fight, flight, or freeze. She froze up and it was misinterpreted by investigators. She really is never going to recover from what has happened to her.

How would it violate double jeopardy. She was convicted, not acquitted. Even in the U.S., if you were convicted and given a new trial, that would not be double jeopardy.

Well, her victim is dead, so she isn’t going to recover even more.

When her conviction was overturned by an Italian court that amounted to an acquittal.

Actually, when brought in for questioning, she did cartwheels at the police station. Not exactly fight, flight or freeze.

Amanda Knox is as much a murderer as George Zimmerman is

She was acquitted of the crime....then subjected to double jeopardy by another court

Anyone trusting the Italian justice system is being foolish. They are clinically Anti American....you should see how they treat custodial American parents when their children are abducted by non-custodial parents and go to Italy

Well any future extradition to Italy for a retrial would violate her fifth amendment right against double jeopardy. In the US, an acquittal can't be reversed, eg. O J Simpson. Why should a US court allow a extradition of someone who has already been acquitted of a crime to be retried?

In the US, if an appellate court sets aside a jury verdict, that's not the same as an acquittal.

How so?

“Earlier reports said Knox was planning to stay in the U.S. rather than return to Italy to face justice. “

Double jeopardy? What justice?

“In the US, if an appellate court sets aside a jury verdict, that’s not the same as an acquittal.”

From the article:

“The court overturned the couple’s acquittal”

This is what our courts will look at, where double jeopardy comes into play.
