Amanda Knox’s Trip to Italy
Amanda Marie Knox’s first trip to Italy was with her family when she was 15 when she visited Rome, Pisa, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast. She was captivated by the beautiful country with amazing scenic views and worked in part-time jobs to fund an academic year in Italy to study linguistics after reading Frances Mayes’ book ‘Under the Tuscan Sun.’ Her step-father was continuously concerned about her plans to study in Italy, believing she was very young to go on her own. Amanda Knox met her friend and roommate who was also linguistics exchange pupil Meredith Kercher from the United Kingdom for the first time in September 2007 in Perugia, Italy, when they leased a four bedroom flat with two other native women. To make ends meet, Knox took a part-time job at a pub.
Amanda Knox False Conviction
Knox and Sollecito were found not guilty in November 2010 by a court that listened to their plea, because no DNA of Meredith Kercher was found on the supposed murder weapon that was found in Sollecito’s kitchen. Other inconsistencies in the case led to both being acquitted and set free. Knox was convicted of falsely impeaching her then employer. Amanda was sentenced to three years in prison, which Knox had served already. Knox returned to Seattle, Washington, after the verdict, to finish her studies.
Amanda Knox Found Guilty
After the grave incident in Italy, Amanda Marie came back to the United States to finish her studies, but the Italian judicial system again ordered a retrial, which found her guilty of the monstrous crime once more. The case was lastly over when the Italian Supreme Court ruled that she was not guilty of murder. Despite the fact that she never went back to that horrible place in Italy after her first acquittal, Amanda’s family was forced to bear the financial burden of the repeated trials, which left them bankrupt. Amanda Marie has written a best-selling memoir about her experiences, titled ‘Waiting to be Heard: A Memoir,’ which has sparked the creation of numerous national and international level documentaries, books, and the American true crime movie titled ‘Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy” which became insanely popular.
