Amanda Knox's murder trials for the murder of Meredith Kercher have seemed unending. With an innocent verdict, then a guilty, and now an appeal of that decision, it seems like we will never know the truth about what happened on that fateful night.
One of Amanda Knox's lawyers, Theodore Simon, explained it this way,
"I got involved after her initial conviction at the end of ’09. On her appellate trial, she was actually found innocent. Thereafter, the prosecution appealed to the country’s Supreme Court and had her innocent verdict reversed. She went back for a new appellate court trial, where she was convicted. And now, it’s back on appeal."
Wow. That sounds like a nightmare. Even this late in the game, new evidence is being brought to light. Take, for instance, the news that Amanda Knox was allegedly entangled with a cocaine ring in Italy. A statement from the prosecuter's reports claims,
“During the course of the investigation into the Meredith Kercher, we have confirmed that a person whose initial is ‘F’ would occasionally supply drugs to Amanda Knox, as well as having a relationship with her supposedly of a sexual nature.”
Whether this information actually has an impact on her trial may not be known until the end of this Amanda Knox fiasco. Whenever that may be.
Conflict over Amanda Knox's guilt or innocence has sparked debates worldwide and has put many people at odds with others on the topic. However, until now, no one really heard too much about inside opinion. That is, until Theodore Simon spoke about the appeal.
"There’s only one thing that is consistent about this particular case: There’s a compelling and profound absence of evidence. It’s a nightmare that should end, and it’s completely and wholly unjust."
What do you think about Amanda Knox? From the information we have so far, do you think she is guilty or innocent?
