Italy Overturns Amanda Knox Acquittal, Will Retry the Case; I wish they would try to make me go back for it!

I believe in justice and I hate railroading. In this country you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Most of us don’t know the story behind the Amanda Knox story. We know bits and pieces but this story didn’t affect our every day lives so if I miss out on something forgive me but you probably don’t know either LOL.

So you want me to come back to Italy for a trial that I got acquitted for, that I told you I didn’t do it in the first place. I got two words for the courts of Italy – “Make Me.”  Seriously make me show back up so that you can railroad me for more jail time.

From FOX – Italy’s highest criminal court on Tuesday overturned Amanda Knox’s acquittal in the slaying of her British roommate and ordered a new trial, prolonging a case that has become a cause celebre in the United States.

Prosecutors alleged Kercher was the victim of a drug-fueled sex game gone awry. Knox and Sollecito denied wrongdoing and said they weren’t even in the apartment that night, although they acknowledged they had smoked marijuana and their memories were clouded.

An Ivory Coast man, Rudy Guede, was convicted of the slaying in a separate proceeding and is serving a 16-year sentence. Knox and Sollecito were also initially convicted of the murder and given long prison sentences, but were then acquitted on appeal and released in 2011.

After nearly four years behind bars in Italy, Knox returned to her hometown of Seattle after the 2011 acquittal and Sollecito resumed his computer science studies, following the degree he earned while studying in prison.

Italy’s judicial system allows for two levels of appeals, and prosecutors can appeal acquittals.

This is ridiculous that this country wants to punish this young lady after being found guilty and acquitted and then they want to exact revenge by putting her back on trial.

Make me come back!
