Italy prosecutors appeal decision to overturn Knox conviction

Prosecutors in Italy lodged an appeal Tuesday against the acquittal of American student Amanda Knox in the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

A secretary for prosecutor Giuliano Mignini confirmed to CNN that the appeal had been filed, but said Mignini was not immediately available for comment.

Knox and her ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were convicted of murder in 2009 but cleared when they appealed the verdicts in October.

In legal paperwork published in December, the judge in the case wrote that the jury had cleared the pair for lack of evidence proving they were guilty.

    So ive been flaged for the truth? Well lets do it again!! Our justice system has repeatedly supported the guilty in multiple cases even though they were guilty , so the guilty go free and the innocent are trying to protect thenselves from the injustices of our court system so what are we suppose to do?

    When you leave America, you are no longer protected by the Bill of Rights, but now that Amanda Knox is back in the US, I do hope that she will not be extradited. Doing so would be to place her in double-jeopardy and thus violate her 5th Amendment rights. The prosecution should have the grace to admit that they were wrong and leave it at that.
