Will Amanda Knox be exonerated?

March 25, 2015 was the day Amanda Knox supporters and people all over the world were waiting for, the day Amanda Knox was to learn if her murder conviction was going to be upheld, or if exoneration could clear her name once and for all. To the surprise of many, the Italian high court announced that they would not be making a decision due to the excessive amount of media that was covering the hearing, and that the decision would be read on Friday since the court had to move to hearing to another room.

How did we get to this point?

Amanda Knox, a beautiful Seattle coed has been the center of attention since her arrest in November of 2007; in connection to the brutal murder of her 21 year old British roommate, Meredith Kercher in Italy. Meredith's slain body was found in her room, inside of the flat she was sharing with Knox and 2 other roommates on November 1, 2007. Meredith had been stabbed, sexually assaulted, and had her throat cut in what seemed to be a rather violent and personal attack against the British college student. Knox and her boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, were arrested, interviewed, and scrutinized by the Italian authorities and the victim's family. Knox and Sollecito were found guilty of murder in 2008, and would spend some 4 years in an Italian prison before being acquitted of all charges in 2011, marking a win in the book of Knox supporters everywhere. However, the happiness would be short lived as Knox would once again be subjected to yet another trial that would once again uphold her murder conviction, only this time Amanda was back on American soil protected by those that love her, and the United States Constitution. What seems like the end of the road for Amanda, could very well be a saving grace in disguise for Knox.

Will Knox be extradited to Italy if found guilty once more?

The question regarding Knox' guilty conviction and the likelihood of the United States extraditing her back to Italy to serve her sentence is one that remains unanswered. It is really hard to answer such questions as we are still awaiting the outcome of Wednesdays court hearing. Many supporters of Knox believe that the United States will do everything in their power to protect Knox, even with the extradition treaty the US has with Italy. This belief comes from the United States double jeopardy clause; preventing individuals from being tried and convicted for the same crime twice using the same evidence, information, and witnesses. So as we wait for a conclusion of Wednesdays court hearing, we will continue to wonder if Amanda Knox is truly safe on American soil or not.
