Amanda Knox is preparing for her last ditch effort at an appeal in Italy's highest appeals court. She will try to overturn her conviction of murdering her roommate Meredith Kercher. That is enough for anyone to be anxious about, but now it seems she has a few other problems to deal with.
It was revealed recently that Amanda Knox allegedly had a sexual relationship with a cocaine dealer who allegedly repeatedly sold drugs to a man named Luciano who allegedly stabbed his brother 16 times with a kitchen knife. This allegedly occurred a year before Meredith Kercher was murdered. Amanda Knox's alleged connections to the cocaine dealer, who investigators refer to as "F", weren't mentioned in her murder trial.
This "F" was reportedly a psychology student from Rome. It is said that he met Amanda Knox on a train from Milan to Florence and shared a joint with her. The two then developed a relationship that investigators deemed to be of a "supposedly sexual nature". His phone number was found in her phone and records showed that the two were in contact often.
It was assumed that "F" also sold drugs to Amanda Knox.
However, it seems that this new information may not have any effect on Amanda Knox.
Giuliano Mignini, the magistrate in charge of the investigation into Meredith Kercher's murder, said Wednesday that he considered the new revelations irrelevant to Amanda Knox's case.
He said of Amanda Knox's case, "We have three sentences, one of which is definite and we are at the final stages of the process – this will not change anything."
Mignini added that new evidence wouldn't even be admitted into Amanda Knox's appeal hearing.
Basically, when it comes to the conviction of Amanda Knox, this new information really doesn't matter when the facts are examined that relate to the murder of Meredith Kercher.
"We ran down many leads and at the end we were left with three people who left traces in the house." Mignini said.
The appeal that Amanda Knox has made for her innocence will be over soon. Only time will tell if she will face punishment or freedom.
