The appeal after the overturned convictions. I hope this can all be brought to a close now.

Now saying 1900 uk time for the verdict

Samwidge Thu 30-Jan-14 20:59:30

I'm confused - have they been found guilty?

Samwidge Thu 30-Jan-14 21:00:42

Apologies, Sky News has just confirmed the guilty verdict - 28.5 yrs for her, 25 for him.

purplebaubles Thu 30-Jan-14 21:04:51

So what happens now then? Does she go to jail or not?

How the fuck have they been found guilty with no fucking evidence? angry

Oh I get it, it's because Amanda Knox had the temerity to be good looking and not ashamed of that. Fucking ridiculous.

Unfortunately I'm not surprised but really cannot see that that is the correct verdict based on the evidence.

Also I just can't get my head around a system where you can be found not guilty, released. Tried again and found guilty. All with no new evidence being discovered.

I have tried to comment on another thread, but have been blocked.

I understand that they must be some legal restrictions so that we are unable to comment...

Hope you never are in the Italian justice system......

I don't understand it. confused

I agree doctor if anyone has been in any doubt about why feminism is still relevant just needs to look at the media reporting of this case. Most people on the street would have no idea who Raffaelle Sollecito is but Amanda Knox (or Foxy Knoxy angry) is instantly recognizable. Every report seems to juxtapose Amanda and Meredith like a real life representation of the Madonna/ Whore complex .

Frozenatchristmas Thu 30-Jan-14 21:15:44

I don't understand it either.

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:17:39

Fucking hell!

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:18:56

Whiter I was going to post about how, as there are no juicy photos to be had this seems to have avoided the papers recently.

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:19:36

I am so upset and angry!

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:20:31

There is NO fucking evidence. Just hearsay and propaganda and fucking DM type reporting.

Sparklingbrook Thu 30-Jan-14 21:20:47

I will be interested to hear what Meredith's family think of this.

Theknacktoflying Thu 30-Jan-14 21:22:28

Found guilty, but acquitted because DNA samples compromised. Retried and then found guilty?

Makes very little sense ...

DrankSangriaInThePark Thu 30-Jan-14 21:23:33

Purple, no, they will not go to jail.

There will be the 3rd stage trial. If that comes out with the same verdict then, in theory, they will.

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:24:10

It drags it out EVEN longer as they have one more chance, if I understand it correctly.

PortofinoRevisited Thu 30-Jan-14 21:25:48

Sparkling, I feel more than anything for Meredith's family. I don't think they are been best served here.
