PHOTOS! Here again are Facebook photos of Amanda Knox. Facebook for Amanda Knox became a spot where defenders and accusers were split over her innocence during her trial.
Amanda Knox Friday received a 26 year sentence which Meredith Kercher’s brother Lyle told press he though was appropriate. Do you agree?
Lyle told press late Friday U.S. time: “Ultimately we are pleased with the decision. But it was not a moment of celebration. We are here because our sister was brutally murdered.”Meredith’s mother Arline Kercher said she also agreed with the verdict. “You have to go with the evidence”.
A verdict that was announced at 3 pm PST 6 pm EST suddenly blanketed U.S. media within moments with the debate continuing – was Knox’s verdict correct? Was the trial fair?
Among the criticisms of the trial was that the criminal jury heard also the civil damage numbers. Knox was found liable for $7.4 million and $40,000 for the man she accused of the Meredith’s death.
Knox’s family said in a written statement:
“While we always knew this was a possibility, we find it difficult to accept this verdict when we know that she is innocent, and that the prosecution has failed to explain why there is no evidence of Amanda in the room where Meredith was so horribly and tragically murdered”.
Knox 22 and Raffaele Sollecito 24 were a couple. She was from the U.S, an exchange student, he was from a Southern Italian town. Raffaele Sollecito and Amanda Knox still assert their innocence and say they were not involved in the death of Meredith Kercher.
