    Rudy Guede got his sentenced reduced from 30 to 16 years on appeal.

    BBC News - Kercher killer Rudy Guede has sentence reduced

    A man jailed for 30 years for killing UK student Meredith Kercher has had his sentence almost halved on appeal.
    Rudy Guede, 23, will now serve 16 years for killing the Leeds University student from Surrey, who was found with her throat slit in Perugia in 2007.
    Small-time drug dealer Guede fled to Germany but was arrested on a train and extradited to Italy to stand trial.
    Amanda Knox, 22, and her former lover Raffaele Sollecito, 25, were jailed for Miss Kercher's murder last month.

    Holy Crap. There is no question that this guy was involved in Kercher's death. His criminal background is appalling. Yet he will serve only 16 years? What a blow to Kercher's family. Jesus. Italy has no morals.

    haven't you been listening to Obama? we must become more like Europe, guess all those that died in the Revolutionary war was for naught

    /sarcasm

    Can not believe a life is only worth 16 years over there. *crosses Italy off future travel plans*

    I crossed off ever going to Aruba after the Natalee Holoway case. There's no respect there for human life. I may have to do the same thing to Italy. Ewwwwwww.

    We better see a similar ruling for Amanda Knox.

    Maybe I should cross off the old US of A off my list too then. After an innocent man who is very dear to someone I love was sent to prison for a crime he did not commit, his name will probably be on the sex offenders list for a few more years AFTER he gets out and his young life is pretty much destroyed along with that of his wife. All for the "crime" of mistakenly downloading kiddie porn on Lime Wire when all he wanted was regular porn. Possession alone was enough to send him to jail for 10 years, even if he never meant to possess any of that stuff.

    Please clean up your own backyard before you go pointing fingers elsewhere. You're jailing innocents too and letting real criminals off for good behavior every day.

    This is very disappointing, although it might bode well for Amanda.

    That's exactly what I thought when I read it.

    Not to mention the whole OJ fiasco. Everything about that trial was a joke.
