Amanda Knox Found Innocent! To Be Released From Jail!

| Filed under: Legal Matters

And there it is. Four years and one Lifetime movie later, Amanda Knox is a free woman.

Maybe she'll get around to watching that the movie now.

An Italian appeals jury overturned Amanda's murder conviction today, bringing an end to her prison sentence and the freedom to return to her family in Seattle. Her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was also cleared of the murder charges. Amanda retains the defamation charge for when she tried accuse club owner Patrick Lumumba of killing her roommate, Meredith Kercher.

As you can see from the video (above), Amanda cried with jubilation as she was whisked away back to prison to collect her things and finally return to her family and friends back home.

Time to start anew. Enjoy your freedom, Amanda!

    out of all things..you dont have this as "breaking news"?



  2. 2

    thank u God!!! Amanda… we love u welcome home to USA!!!



  3. 3

    Boo! Another psycho running loose. Is no one actually convicted of a crime anymore??



  4. 4

    Oh please, she and her boyfriend changed her stories several times and they are the only ones who could have done it! I still think they're guilty, therse's just no sufficient evidence to prove it… RIP MEREDITH KERCHER



  5. 5

    nice to see you fixed that and made it breaking news.



  6. 6

    Disgusting… The pretty white American girl and the European boy get off eventually for a crime everyone knows they committed, whereas the black African man is left in prison.



  7. 7

    In before some moron relates this to Casey Anthony!

    I believed she was innocent.



  8. 8

    I think that Amanda Knox should give the money of false imprisonment to Meredith's family because they are the real victims. Amanda should just be grateful she was found free from the false charges. Either way we will never know if she did it or not unless they find the real killer.



  9. 9

    it is so good to be good looking and white in this world.



  10. 10

    Hey…..fuckheads, she DIDN'T DO IT! She spent 4 years in prison for those fucking WOPS mistake!



  11. 11

    I am sorry for Meredith's family, but a good day for justice. The have a man in jail for the crime and his DNA.



  12. 12

    ….you guys know that an acquittal and 'innocent' are completely different things right… c'mon perez.



  13. 13

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – Do you mean the black man whose DNA they found inside Meredith and all over her room? That one?



  14. 14

    lets not forget about that poor girl who lost her life Meredith Kercher RIP!



  15. 15

    Oh yes, Jai, the oppressive intergalactic capital of the Jaisasian Empire

    Re: stephnm10 – im guessing your a white trash lover. amanda knox is going to hell. burn in hell amanda knox.



  18. 18

    I feel bad for Meredith's family. I thought this might happen because lets face it she is a pretty white girl so white americans had her back. Casey Anthony and now Amanda Knox. I guess white women can get away with murder now. I do not know if she killed her, but I am sure she is not innocent. She had something to do with it. I wonder if she will be able to live with her guilt.



  19. 19

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – pretty white american girl. hahaha are you kidding me. amand knox is a hideous disgusting piece of white trash. i hate white trash.



  20. 20

    Maybe she and Casey Anthony can be rommates!



  21. 21

    LOL… i love how this is a black/white issue…
    two words;
    OJ Simpson.



  22. 22

    …funny thing is, this one really did it. but what the hell does that matter in America anymore.



  23. 23

    I would love to have a Foursome with her, her sister, and Casey Anthony while Nancy Grace Watches



  24. 24

    Re: WhitePeopleLookSoGrossBut how do you really feel?



  25. 25

    Im assuming that was the sister in the video

  26. yeez says – reply to this


    26

    Was there ever any doubt she would get off?



  27. 27

    Yes because lying makes you murderer…not young and scared, think about it, you are in a foreign country, your best friend has been raped and murdered and you are being interrogated, hmmm I might say some things to get out of there so I could call my parents and ask for advice and I am 44! People lie but forensics does not, yet it was tainted by UNIVERSAL standards…you could really convict someone on faulty forensics? I could never convict someone knowing the forensics was so bad that the only two plausible explanations were the cops were inept or corrupt. I am sorry to hear that you could.



  28. 28

    WOW! IS THIS A RACE ISSUE?! It disgusts me that people come on here and talk about white trash and black people, etc. How about just the truth, the murderer, who happens to be black had his DNA all over and inside of the victim and the murder weapon. There was no evidence of Amanda or Rafael anywhere, but since they acted "weird" the day of the murder, they must be guilty. HOPE TO GOD YOU PEOPLE NEVER HAVE TO BE A JUROR!!!!!!!!

  29. @v@ says – reply to this


    29

    Guilty or innocent, four years has already been served (in a foreign jail no less), which equals the murder conviction incarceration of many countries after time off for good behavior. That's a very emotional scene. My thoughts are more with the parents of the deceased girl.



  30. 30

    They never had any evidence dumb bitch…

    just because you are accused of something doesn't automatically make you guilty…..go to college and learn something.



  31. 31

    Re: addicted89 – that is not true…the roommate had picked up a guy from the bar and brought him home…….read the newspaper moron.



  32. 32

    I'm glad she's going home because I believe she is innocent. Sad that she had to spend four years in jail, but better late than never.



  33. 33

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – You're pathetic. Leave America now! We don't want you!! Your racist rants will probably not land you a job in the judicial system of any country. Glad to here you are smarter than the Italian judicial system.

  34. aly95 says – reply to this


    34

    Please as an italian girl from Perugia i say that she was clearly guilty, everybody knew her and her psycho boyfriend around here and everybody know they at least had something to do with it…she was the one who told the court that she heard meredith scream while she was being killed…we are in 2011 and there are still differences between blacks and whites…Italian justice officially SUCKS…



  35. 35

    Re: WhitePeopleLookSoGross – Foxy Knoxy is a babe! You are obviously a doofus. The fact that you are a doofus means that no one would ever listen to you nonsensical opinion. Your name screams "I wish I was white". Can't you just get over the ugliness which is obviously inside and out? Accept yourself. The world is beautiful. Try giving it a go! Also, (if you happen to be American) get out of America! We don't want you!!



  36. 36

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – Also, what does being white have to do with being imprisoned in Italy? Italians are not white. I rarely want to reach through my computer screen and strangle the idiot on the otherside, but…….



  37. 37

    Re: josiecat – Smart girl to "know" all this stuff. Does God speak to you in your sleep? Also, you are attempting to relate this to the Casey Anthony trial? I'll never understand the mind of a stupid stupid person. This case has as much to do with the Casey Anthony trial as it does the OJ Simpson trial. Nice comparison!! By chance do you know what a prime number is? Is Florida at the Southwest region of our country, or the Southeast? Can you tell me the difference between "their" and "there"?



  38. 38

    Re: Mikoras – that all you can say to other americans to get out of the country and fight for your team. In my book, you do the crime and you should serve the time as well. Yes, Guede did it but Meredith had 3 knife wounds on her neck. DNA on her bra clasp was of Sollceto(which was ruled as contaminated eveidence) because the police took too long. They found bloody foot prints of Amanda and Sollecitos.This girl changed her story 3 times, blamed an innocent man Patrick Lumumba, hired a Pr firm, faked a break in. Clearly she knows more than she told the police. There was other girls who were allowed to go free. Please go do some reserch on thsi case before you make stupid commnets.



  39. 39

    Good grief you guys are brutal. Have you followed this story at all or just writing crap on this post for the hell of it? Giuliano Mignini the prosecutor is a nut job, he has screwed up many cases in Italy in the past because he believes that everyone charged with a crime is doing so because they belong to a satanic cult! Do some reading before you pop off. He absolutely railroaded this young girl, even denying her a lawyer to be present in the interogations and her only knowing very basic Italian. Where's the hatred for Rudy Guede? My heart goes out to Meredith Kercher and her family.



  40. 40

    bull shit shes g..u..i..l..t..y GUILTY



  41. 41

    I'm so glad. I hope that prosecutor goes to jail and I hope Meredith's family can somehow find peace. Don't take your life for granted Amanda! Do some good.
    RIP Meredith.



  42. 42

    Well Foxy Knoxy is free to sit on my face as long there is no knife in the room. This skank will be a multi- millionar in a few years just like moron Sara Palin. Never forget Foxy you are guilty in many peoples eyes



  43. 43

    Dude she is most likely really fucking innocent, all of her shit adds up it's pretty obvious with all the fucked up evidence they couldn't land on her shes innocent, she doesn't have a criminal background and has a good alibi not because shes fucking white you fucking idiots! Rudy Guede on the other hand is completely guilty just read this:

    "But he developed into a troubled youth, skipping school, dabbling in drugs and dropping out of courses in accountancy and hotel management. A keen basketball player, in the evenings and at weekends he mingled with the thousands of students who are each year drawn to Perugia's University for Foreigners. " they go on to say about the night of him being there

    "He has always denied murdering the British student, although he admits that he was in the house on the night of the murder. He claimed that he was flirting with Miss Kercher in her bedroom but had to run to the lavatory, having eaten a spicy kebab. While in the bathroom he heard screaming.

    When he rushed out, he said he was bowled over by a knife-wielding Italian man, who ran off into the night. Guede said he found Miss Kercher bleeding to death in her bedroom.

    In panic, he left the house and a few days later fled to Germany. He was eventually arrested, extradited back to Italy and put on trial. "

    THANK YOU!



  44. 44

    It doesn't even seem like any of you have followed up on this case at all. Do some fucking research before you have a bullshit opinion.



  45. 45

    Re: WhitePeopleLookSoGross – Amanda Knox is going to hell? Who died and made you God?



  46. 46

    Re: Babycakes!!! – yeah, and maybe you can learn to spell hahahah



  47. 47

    Do not fear buddy, I'm not from your country, nor wolud I ever want to be. The rest of the world does not want America though so I completely understand your sentiment.Re: Mikoras



  48. 48

    Italians are not white… So they're green are they? In your ridiculous backwards country where people aren't even required to attend school for a decent number of years they obviously don't teach you much. Or maybe they do, but by the sounds of things you probably dropped out around the age of 14 to have your first little bastard child, am I correct?Re: Mikoras



  49. 49

    Re: aly95 – The experts decimated the evidence against Amanda Knox on appeal. They determined that Knox and Sollecito were not at the crime scene. It's sad if other Italians feel the way that you do, because instead of using your brains and thinking for yourselves, you are being sucked in to the medias character assassination of two innocents!



  50. 50

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – ooohhh nice comeback. ur super sassy. just stfu ur embarrassing urself…



  51. 51

    Re: Mikoras
    Oooh good comeback, I am stupid! Trying to relate my comment to that conlusion is idiotic! Still, what can you expect from someone in denial? Reading your comments, I can only assume you are somewhat of a freak. I do know what a prime number is, in fact I know a lot of things. I am also not as ignorant as you. Now my turn to ask you something, do you know the difference between "here" and "hear?"



  52. 52

    I am so happy for Amanda Knox and her family! Yet I am also very sad for the family of Meredith Kercher. They are as much a victim of the Italian police and prosecutors as Amanda was. The Italian police and courts in this instance were after the easiest target and found one in Amanda and her boyfriend. If she fingered someone else, it may have been a desperation move like "who would have killed Meredith??" because no one was looking anywhere else but at her. As for the initial DNA… well, she LIVED IN THE APARTMENT!! Of course her DNA would be in the place!! This is a great day for justice.



  53. 53

    Re: CaptainSteelToe – your stupid ive skipped class, done drugs and dropped out of college courses and im not a murderer. that casey anthony chick didnt have a criminal record. a lot of criminals dont. just because shes a squeaky clean american kid doesnt mean shes innocent.
    she was released because of how the police handled the evidence, NOT because she didnt do it. if the cops had bagged and recorded the evidence correctly then her ass would be in prison for the next 22 years where she belongs.

    and even if someone believed she was truly innocent they still would be cautious being in a room alone with her. its a FACT that she will forever be branded a murderer, and that poor british student's family has to see the killer walk free. maybe her and casey anthony can be roommates and live happily ever after in hell.



  54. 54

    Re: kappuhcheenoh – that is exactly what happened in florida yet people are buying into the media bias when it comes from america but when the media bias is from italy it must be wrong? get a fucking life.



  55. 55

    Re: netgear – or a goodlooking asian woman…white, east asian, same snobbiness, same thing…



  56. 56

    Re: Mikoras – i always try and explain to people that italians are not the standard "white"….and i do not understand why people don't get it…theyre damn ethnic for crying out loud…i mean jeez, cubans like perez hilton are whiter than italians!!!



  57. 57

    Re: Remi81 – dude, I'm 100% Italian and I'm whiter than most Americans….Are you thinking about Snooki the Chilean girl?



  58. 58

    Remi81, I suggest you take a trip to Italy. They are as white as any other European people. Leonardo Di Caprio, Mena Suvari, Kristin Cavallari, Hayden Pannetierre, Gwen Stefani. Shall I keep going? If you think Italians look like the people on the Jersey Shore then your mistaken. The people on the Jersey Shore TAN endlessly, and some aren’t even Italian (Like Snookie), a matter of fact the whitest one Vinny is the most Italian! Educate yourself.



  59. 59

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – You do realize that this trial was in Italy …



  60. 60

    ofcourse everyone feels for Meredith's family. she was an innocent girl murdered by Rudy Gudee. You seriously should not comment when you do not know the FACTS of the case!!!!!!!!!! Just because wshe is a as you said " a pretty white gir" she was released. So was Rafelle… He is not a pretty white girl. Read the facts before you make an ignorant and racist statement. There was no DNA evedance to convict them in the first place. Rudy Gudee's dna is all over the room and inside the victim. I think before you make a statement on a subject you should read up on the facts first.



  61. 61

    Re: d20beckham – You're comparing apples and oranges. The Florida case involved an dead child and the child's mother, with no other suspects. The case in Italy has a third man, with plenty of DNA evidence linking him to the scene and the victim. Maybe you should get a life, and read a little about these cases before you comment.



  62. 62

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – you should be sterilized



  63. 63

    you mean the african american who is guilty and dna evidence is inside the victim and all over the room. seriously



  64. 64

    omg thank you… seriously!!!!! but he was innocent



  65. 65

    as an American Italian girl who is paying attention to the trail… lets see how you would deal in an 16 interrogation in a foriegn country where you barely speak the language and are given sopposed "senerios" could this happen or maybe this… try listioning to the facts and not what your police and media are showing you



  66. 66

    thank you



  67. 67

    Re: yay! Deutsche – Wow, you're as humane as the Italian court system xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo



  68. 68

    Re: Kaseygirl – Yes… Listion to the facts from the trial. Well said, well said.



  69. 69

    Re: kappuhcheenoh – yeah dead kid, sexually assaulted dead gorl. i dont see a difference. murder is murder. and in both cases the murderer went free. only difference is the countries they took place in. i did read about BOTH cases. in florida she went free because the prosecution couldnt prove their case. in italy she went free because the prosecution didnt bag the evidence correctly. if they would have used plastic bags instead of paper then knox would be rotting in jail where she DESERVES to be.



  70. 70

    Re: Mikoras – you gotta be a fuckin idiot to have an opinion about this an not know shit. Im gonna set things straight. 1) Its clear she did it, whether or not she had her bf involved an that other black guy isnt even the fuckin issue. That broad is guilty thats why she spent time in jail. 2) shes the biggest mutt on tv. Im embarrased it had to be some1 so ugly from my country to commit these crimes. Anyone who thinks this pig is hot must be fuckin unreal. 3) to this mikoras character, you fuckin tough guy if i ever catch your ass an connect your real name to this one, your mouth is gonna get you fuckin popped. if some of the boys i know heard the shit you typeing here, maaan. an quit telling people to leave america. what kinda name iks mikoras anyway, sounds like your the fuckin immigrant an should deport your ownb ass outta MY country bitch



  71. 71

    i'm a criminal law student at a very prestigious college - the evidence clearly points more to her innocence than guilt, and all of you teenagers arguing about it should do a little bit more reading.



  72. 72

    Re: zillakilla420 – this is the dumbest post i've read in awhile. you sound like a real winner, buddy.



  73. 73

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – in america, people are REQUIRED to attend school for at least 12 years. the amount of people who attend college per year in today's society is also very high (40.3%), and only behind 5 other countries. In fact, USA requires the most schooling out of any other country… just an FYI - maybe you should look stuff up first.



  74. 74

    Re: brunetshavmorfun – i love how people throw words out like prestigious college, an yet they have no college name to mention. where are you getting your facts bud. over 40 percent of the people in this country go to college? is that some kinda joke. pick up a news paper idiot. Your also really trying to sell that people in this country are required to go to school longer then anywhere else in the world? ok STOP, open a new tab. google; SCHOOLING IN JAPAN OR CHINA or anywhere else for that matter on that side of the world. They ALL require the same amount of schooling you dumbass. I think now its starting to make sense why you didnt mention what college your in lol. Unfortunately, for you, i hink your credability went out the window, i sure feel bad for the person who your gonna sucker in as a client in the future



  75. 75

    Re: zillakilla420 – look, i still won't name my college. I know where I go and I'm proud of it, regardless of what "zillakilla" thinks about me. Before u throw around words like "dumbass" maybe u should learn how to spell "credibility," and while you're at it, learn the difference between "your" and "you're.' In America, citizens are required to attend school until age 16 and after that can only drop out with parental permission. Other countries have similar ages, yet do not need permission to drop. and yes, OVER 40% of citizens go to college. I looked it up. Twice. But thanks.



  76. 76

    Re: brunetshavmorfun – Well that's certainly not true seeing as compulsory education in the UK is required up until age 16, with the age most likely being increased to 18 in the near future. Now I'm sure, if you go to such a prestigious university you'll be able to work out a there's a four year difference in there.



  77. 77

    Re: brunetshavmorfun – Read your post wrong but even then, that's still the same amount of time required in both countries.
    Hope you're having fun at your community college baby xxxxxxx



  78. 78

    Re: WhyCantILeaveComments – hey, at least you admit that americans are just as educated as other countries… more, in fact, because parental permission is a requirement to drop before age 18, which is not a stipulation in other countries. i will be sure to enjoy my remaining years at my four year, award winning, division 1 university. thanks!



  79. 79

    Re: brunetshavmorfun – lmao, i bet this brunette has lots of fun at her very prestigious, four year, award winning, division 1 community college. Its clear you aint learning. yea i said "aint" go ahead, make some cracck about that. or maybe do an in depth check on my reply for spelling errors or grammer corrections and punctuation faults. I would think some1 who goes to such a prestigious school studying to be a great lawyer someday, would have better things to do. Fact is i dont believe a word your saying, an i don't think any of these "teenagers" do either. Teenagers that you've chosen to argue with.. I guess that kinda makes your whole opinion useless?



  80. 80

    Re: zillakilla420 – Your grammatical mistakes stick out to me like a sore thumb, due to my great education…no in depth analysis required. I am, however, confused by your logic… Because youre teenagers, my opinion doesn't matter? Makes total sense, dude. You should focus more on your own free time (which I strongly advise you to spend studying - you need the practice) than on what I do with mine.



  81. 81

    Re: brunetshavmorfun – What, lol, your still caught up on this? Ok, you wanna talk about grammer. Well, first of all you should have a space after your (…), the word (no) should have a capital, you never start sentances with the word (because), instead of brackets you should have used a comma,that is not the proper place for a dash and the word (dude) is slang. Haha i thought you said this stuff sticks out like a sore thumb. Listen sweetie, this whole time you've just been making your community college look bad. I hope you can understand the logic in what im about to say next, JUST LET IT GO.



  82. 82

    Re: zillakilla420 – HAHAHAHAHAH half of your corrections are completely incorrect! Besides, excuse me if I don't take grammAr advice from someone who can't even spell the word correctly. Just a question: Who are u to tell me to "let it go" when you are responding to each of my comments?
