Amanda Knox: “Trial Error”

Amanda Knox: “Trial Error”

Pic-03262013-001Amanda Knox might be looking at another trial case that could be set in the very near future.

Knox ,25, was in what most called a “Shocking and twisted” murder case, in which Knox was branded a murderer for the death of her roommate Meredith Kercher.

Knox was acquitted of the charges in the previous trial, but now an Italian Court is saying different because they are pushing for a new trial date and have decided that Knox should be imprisoned again until her case is proves that she is innocent of the charges.   

Knox lives in Seattle, she returned to her home state after she was released from the Capanne prison in Italy back in 2011.

Her case was thrown out because of how the prosecution of the case was handled, so basically the case was “botched” from the beginning.

But if the curt is so inclined they could just ignore the prosecution’s appeal for a new trial, but the Supreme Court is standing firm on the fact that Knox should not have been parted nor set free.

And in some cases presented, the high court usually deals with deciding on what course of actions to take on the same day that arguments of the case is heard.

But in Knox’s case, it is more complicated and complex which will push it for further proceedings.

Another one of Meredith Kercher’s roommates, that was also accused of her murder Francesco Sollecito (Knox’s Boyfriend) had released a statement saying.. “We have waited so many years, one night is not going to make a  difference,” he said that standing outside of the courthouse.

Both Knox and Sollecito were convicted of the murder crime against Kercher, but because of their testimonials in which the two were supposedly high on marijuana the night of Kercher’s murder were she was found in a pool of her own blood in her bedroom.

She had shared an apartment with both Knox and Sollecito at the time that had taken place. 

And after Knox and Sollecito are now both students in college, Sollecito continued he pursue of Computer Science and Knox is presently a student at University of Washington.

Rudy Guede, an Ivory Coast Drifter was convicted of the slaying in a separate preceding and is serving a 16-year sentence.

So now the prosecutors are trying to overturn the acquittals for both Sollecito and Knox in a re-trial attempt.

Even though the Italian law states that it cannot compel Knox to be order back to Italy. And even so if she was back on trial there and her case retried, and if she is found in contempt of court there would not be any additional penalties that she would face.

As of now, Knox is anxiously waiting to see what lies in store for her next. And no doubt she has a lot to think about as she wonders what the High Court’s decision will be decided on what direction to take on her case.

One thought on “Amanda Knox: “Trial Error”

  1. The evidence against Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito is overwhelming. They gave completely different accounts of where they were, who they were with and what they were doing on the night of the murder. Neither Knox nor Sollecito have credible alibis despite three attempts each. All the other people who were questioned had one credible alibi that could be verified. Innocent people don’t give multiple conflicting alibis and lie repeatedly to the police.

    The DNA didn’t miraculously deposit itself in the most incriminating of places.

    An abundant amount of Raffaele Sollecito’s DNA was found on Meredith’s bra clasp. His DNA was identified by two separate DNA tests. Of the 17 loci tested in the sample, Sollecito’s profile matched 17 out of 17. Professor Novelli pointed out there’s more likelihood of meteorite striking the courtroom in Perguia than there is of the bra clasp being contaminated by dust.

    According to Sollecito’s forensic expert, Professor Vinci, and Luciano Garofano, Knox’s DNA was on Meredith’s bra.

    Amanda Knox’s DNA was found on the handle of the double DNA knife and a number of independent forensic experts – Dr. Patrizia Stefanoni, Dr. Renato Biondo, Professor Francesca Torricelli and Professor Giuseppe Novelli – categorically stated that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade. Sollecito knew that Meredith’s DNA was on the blade which is why he lied about accidentally pricking her hand whilst cooking.

    According to the prosecution’s experts, there were five instances of Knox’s DNA or blood mixed with Meredith’s blood in three different locations in the cottage. Even Amanda Knox’s lawyers conceded that her blood had mingled with Meredith’s blood. In other words, Meredith and Amanda Knox were both bleeding at the same time.

    Knox tracked Meredith’s blood into the bathroom, the hallway, her room and Filomena’s room, where the break-in was staged. Knox’s DNA and Meredith’s blood was found mixed together in Filomena’s room, in a bare bloody footprint in the hallway and in three places in the bathroom.

    Rudy Guede’s bloody footprints led straight out of Meredith’s room and out of the house. This means that he didn’t stage the break-in in Filomena’s room or go into the blood-spattered bathroom after Meredith had been stabbed.

    The bloody footprint on the blue bathmat in the bathroom matched the precise characteristics of Sollecito’s foot, but couldn’t possibly belong to Guede. Knox’s and Sollecito’s bare bloody footprints were revealed by luminol in the hallway.

    It’s not a coincidence that the three people – Knox, Sollecito and Guede – who kept telling the police a pack of lies are all implicated by the DNA and forensic evidence.

    Amanda Knox voluntarily admitted that she was involved in Meredith’s murder in her handwritten note to the police on 6 November 2007. After she was informed that Sollecito was no longer providing her with an alibi, she stated on at least four separate occasions that she was at the cottage when Meredith was killed. At the trial, Sollecito refused to corroborate Knox’s alibi that she was at his apartment.

    Knox accused an innocent man, Diya Lumumba, of murdering Meredith despite the fact she knew he was completely innocent. She didn’t recant her false and malicious allegation against Lumumba the whole time he was in prison. She admitted that it was her fault that Lumumba was in prison in an intercepted conversation with her mother on 10 November 2007.
