Court: case had ‘stunning’ flaws

Makes Statement

Italy’s top criminal court issues a 52-page legal motivazioni, explaining why it threw out Knox and Sollecito’s murder case in March. The five-person panel says they did so in part because there was a lack of biological traces and that there was no proof Knox and Sollecito were in the bedroom where Kercher was fatally stabbed.

[The trial] had oscillations which were the result of stunning flaws, or amnesia, in the investigation and omissions in the investigative activity.


I am deeply grateful that the Italian Supreme Court has filed its opinion and forcefully declared my innocence. This has been a long struggle for me, my family, my friends, and my supporters. While I am glad it is now over, I will remain forever grateful to the many individuals who gave their time and talents to help me. [I will] now begin the rest of my life with one of my goals being to help others who have been wrongfully accused.

Knox, Sollecito acquitted


Italy’s top appeals court acquits Knox and Sollecito of charges stemming from Kercher’s murder. Neither defendant appears in court. Knox:

You saved my life, and I am so grateful. I’m so grateful that I have my life back. Thank you. That’s all I can say. Right now I’m still absorbing what all of this means. Meredith was my friend, she deserved so much in this life.

Wins appeal

Knox is free following an appeal in the Italian murder case of Kercher, her roommate. This nullifies a previous sentence of 26 years in prison.

I did not kill. I did not rape, I did not steal. I was not there. I want to go back home. I want to go back to my life. I don’t want to be punished. I don’t want my life and my future to be taken away for something I didn’t do.
