More details are coming out about Amanda Knox's time behind bars in an Italian prison.
The American exchange student claims she was subjected to numerous disturbing incidents at the prison in Capanne, Italy.
On one occasion, a male guard entered her cell alone and made sexual remarks to her. And in another incident, she was called in for a late night meeting with a high-ranking official where he did nothing but speak about sex with her.
She was even asked to compose a list of all the sexual partners she had (which ws later leaked to the media and published) and shockingly, was falsely told that she was HIV positive by prison authorities!!
During that time, she wrote in her diary:
"Please oh please, let it not be true. I don't want to die."
Vanity Fair's Judy Bachrach commented on her time in jail, saying:
"I think the Italian courts … practically made sure that Amanda was going to be harassed in prison since they made her sex life so much of a focus of the first trial."
Amanda could sue for the alleged incidents, but she'd have to fly back to Italy and file a suit, meaning she would have to endure yet another trial away from home.
It seems so unlawful that prison officials got away with such crude behavior! She most certainly did not deserve to be treated that way.
