    Sorry, I wasn't sure. You're absolutely right though; she's been painted as a whore by the media, as well as a bratty American bitch.

    The Italian media was especially biased against her and the jury had full access to the sensationalistic reporting because they were never sequestered.

    The Italian justice system is just sloppy.

    It's not over. They're going to appeal. The Italian system may be sloppy and that prosecutor is the biggest scumbag imaginable, but under this sloppy system she still has the option of starting over from scratch. There will be another trial and I have much hope that justice will be served. I'm honestly not convinced that Amanda and Raffaele had nothing to do with Meredith's murder, but I do believe that most of the evidence against them was circumstantial and that there was more than reasonable doubt as to their guilt. They should have been acquitted.

    One can only hope. I think once the details of this trial come to light around the world intense pressure will be put on the Italian justice system to ensure a fair review of the so-called evidence against her and her ex.

    I'm honestly not convinced that Amanda and Raffaele had nothing to do with Meredith's murder...
    Well, what was their motive? The prosecutor's theory is that it was the culmination of a Satanic sex ritual. This theory, by the way, was not the brainchild of the prosecutor, rather, it originated with an occultist blogger who claims to communicate with a dead priest. Not what I'd call a plausible motive.

    ...but I do believe that most of the evidence against them was circumstantial and that there was more than reasonable doubt as to their guilt. They should have been acquitted.
    This wouldn't have even gone to trial in America. The chain of evidence was broken in such an amatauerish fashion as to be laughable.

    The key piece of forensic evidence linking Raffaele to the murder scene (a clasp from the victim's bra) was not collected until SIX WEEKS after the murder.

    Even the DNA [knoxs] on the knife? I appreciate it was apparently destroyed during testing. What about the different stories she confessed its purported they changed a few times. I agree with what alot of people are saying the rigours of the Italian court system lead alot to be desired.

    It wasn't the murder weapon, it was just a random knife.

    Lying isn't necessarily a sign of guilt of murder. There are other reasons someone might lie.

    There were all sorts of problems with the DNA evidence on the knife, moreover, the alleged murder weapon does not match the police composite, which was extrapolated from forensic evidence at the murder scene.

    As to the inconsistencies in her story, they are easily explained by the intense interrogation methods of the Italian police force, who induced her into a false confession, which she later retracted. I would also like to note that false confessions are not as uncommon as people think.

    Not to mention handled by everyone while they were all at the scene instead of going directly into an evidence bag.
