Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito to walk free tonight

with one comment

Some instant reactions as Knox and Sollecito are found not guilty of murder on appeal regarding the muder of Meredith Kercher.

First of all Rudy Guede is still in jail for the murder.

Secondly I have no idea whether either Knox or Sollecito are guilty or not. No idea whatsoever. However from all the reports the DNA evidence was all extremely unsafe and that is what the judge thought and decided to disregard all the DNA evidence in the case. After he did this he decided along with his fellow judge and the six jury members decided that the conviction was clearly unsafe and acquitted them both of the murder.

My gut instinct is she probably she involved but you have to prove a case beyond reasonable doubt and if all the DNA evidence is unsafe then you are really pushing it to convict someone on solely circumstantial evidence. You really are.

The Italian legal system has probably done the right thing. We’ll see how Amanda Knox deals with this upon her return to the United States and what her future holds. I remember the case of Louise Woodward and she kept her head down and has rebuilt her life successfully out of the public eye. Will Knox follow suit or will she try to cash in on her story?

I fear it might be the latter.

  1. Indeed. She may well have been involved, but when you have enough doubt you cannot find them guilty.

    Interesting that the Italian Supreme Court said Guede was “one of many”. Makes you wonder who else was involved.
