Skip to comments.Italian prosecutor doubles down, seeks life sentence for Amanda Knox in murder appeal hearing

The second day of closing arguments in the appeals trial of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito concluded with drama: Prosecutors asked that the pair, currently sentenced to 26 and 25 years, respectively, receive life sentences for the murder and sexual assault of British foreign exchange student Meredith Kercher.
They also asked the court to impose an additional sanction of six months in isolation for Amanda and two months for Raffaele.
Earlier on Saturday, prosecutors reviewed the case against Amanda and Raffaele, focusing on a supposed bloody footprint they claim Sollectio made. The evidence is in doubt, however, because the footprint is 7 centimeters (2.75 inches) too large for Sollecito's shoe size.

The position of prosecutor is just another stepping stone in the political career of many corrupt politicians. That’s why innocent people get convicted.
She is so guilty it isn’t funny.
How does one know guilty or not guilty?
Yep. From what I have seen of this case it appears like a shoddy case against her.
So Italy isn’t a modern nation with a real justice system but just another 3rd world craphole. Dare to appeal our verdict? We’ll double your sentence. Criticize our police? Try you for slander. We have no evidence? We’ll make some up.
Cross them off my list of places to visit. Boycott Italy and all Italian-made goods.
AMANDA KNOX: THE NEW MUMIA!

“By now, the only people who believe Amanda Knox and Sollecito are the usual criminal apologists and their friends in the American media.
From Tawana Brawley, Mumia and the Central Park rapists, to the Duke lacrosse players and Karl Rove, liberals are always on the wrong side of a criminal case.
A few times could be a coincidence; every time is evidence of a psychological disorder.”
You must be quite young if that’s the case or you don’t read much.
Knox may be innocent. I don’t know and neither do you, but I did read accounts of her weird behavior at the police station(doing hand stands, etc) and her attempt to frame a bar owner for the murder and her other lies about where she was and what she was doing during the time frame of the murder.
If true, that sort of behavior doesn’t point towards innocence.
Why did the prosecution refuse to test the pillow for DNA?
Why did the defense attorneys not insist on it for the sake of proving whether or not their client (the boyfriend) is innocent? It makes no sense.
You forgot your sarcasm tag.
I think it’s easy to come to the conclusion Knox and Sollecito are innocent from reading most US media accounts. I did. And Amanda’s parents have a great PR machine going. But after reading further (foreign press and court testimony), I have no doubts at all the pair is guilty.
Drug-fueled sex games that end in murder have consequences.
She may be a murderer, but she’s our murderer, right?
I think Amanda Knox may very well be innocent. But she is very sleazy in that she tried to accuse her boss of the murder when her boss had nothing to do with it and did not even know the girl. She was willing to send an innocent man to prison to save her own skin. She is a dirtbag that does not get any sympathy from this corner.
I won’t presume to pretend to know with any certainty whether or not Amanda Knox is innocent or guilty but I believe that if she wasn’t a comely young woman she wouldn’t get a tenth of the interest her case has received to date. Her accusations of an innocent man as the murderer was disturbing and leads me be very skeptical about her claims of innocence. However, because all we know is what the media tells us, I cannot credibly judge her guilt or innocence.
If she were a teacher charged with molesting a male student, it would be easy to determine guilty or not guilty.
You can boycott them if you want, I however will continue to buy my parmigiano reggiano and other Italian delicacies to enjoy. This white trash from America isn’t worth it.
Your opinion is, IMHO, quite possibly, the most foolish one that I have read during my lifetime. Disgusting.
She’s couldn’t be more guilty.
I think she is guilty as sin.
