    This true to an extent CJ. It is my understanding she would have to limit her travels to countries not having extradition treaties with Italy.

    She would be apprehended by local police on the basis of an Interpol Red Notice or, were she silly enough to set foot in the EU, subject to a European Arrest Warrant.

    I don't have the answer, but I think any country that is part of Interpol would also be involved since as a convicted felon, Ms. Knox may have an arrest warrant issued through Interpol for her capture. I don't know what would happen if she travelled to a country that did not have an extradition treaty with Italy but was a party to Interpol and she was arrested.

    Actually, if I was an American and lived in America, I'd have no trouble spending the rest of my life in your great country - As a Canadian, I'd have no trouble living out my life in Canada as well. The US is so varied and vast that it should meet anyone in her position's need for vacation and travel options.

    That's American law. Would you expect another country to extradict someone who's facing capital punishment in the US?

    I mentioned Roman Polanski earlier, but what I forgot was the much more current name in the extradition circus news - Edward Snowden.

    I do not think most Americans remember her but vaguely.

    I too followed the case pretty closely and can say I have serious doubts about her and the boyfriend. They acted very strangely after the murder and had inconsistent stories.
    That is a Tell but given they had come upon a murder scene they were probably still in shock.

    Along with the evidence that was not tainted by incompetence.. like that the whole scene looked staged as a burglary.. and you can only conclude that either they did it or were heavily involved in the murder.
    Or maybe a third party did the murder and then set it up to look like a "scene looked staged as a burglary".

    As for the trial being a sham trial and the Italian court system being inept and corrupt.. funny coming from the Americans.. who piss up and down on the law depending on how much money you have or where you are from.
    I know that money can buy better lawyers and the State should provide dedicated lawyers to the defense of the accused and sometimes people of status get deference because judges like to go into those circles but they are exceptions when they occur.

    Amanda got consular help.. pity the US does not give that to people visiting the US..
    The visitors own consular service of their home country shold be the one providing that.

    Well I Amanda Knox wont be leaving the US for the rest of her life.. because step outside and an international arrest warrant will bring her back to Italy to serve her time.
    She should be able to go to countries that do not have a extradition treaty with Italy; but until the conviction is overturned again, yeah she is limited.

    Double jeopardy doesn't apply in Italy, nor in many jurisdictions. I'm sure she won't be extradited, and will spend the rest of her life within the US. Still, who says crime doesn't pay? I hear Harper Collins are going to pay her $4 million for her account of the murder and trial.
