Amanda Knox and Justice in the Age of Judgment by Anne BremnerAmanda Knox’s case was the first of its kind. This is the inside story of how Anne Bremner had to call upon all her experience—with Michael Jackson, OJ Simpson, and Mark Kay Letourneau—to save an innocent girl’s life.
The trial of Amanda Knox and her boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, for the murder of Meredith Kercher has been called the trial of the decade. Tabloids across the world were enthralled—the idea of an American murdering a British exchange student in a sex ritual was as juicy as they come, lack of evidence be damned—and the case remains popular culture, spawning Netflix’s Amanda Knox documentary and Knox’s New York Times bestselling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard.
Those around Knox turned to Anne Bremner, an accomplished Seattle attorney and frequent legal analyst for the media, for Knox’s defense. Bremner’s real challenge was swaying the jury’s and the public’s preconceived notions; Perugia law enforcement, forensics, and prosecutor Giuliano Mignini had massive holes in their case, but social media and the press had already convicted Knox.
Amanda Knox and Justice in the Age of Judgement is Bremner’s story of how she drew upon all her experience to win a new kind of case—the TV and social media case—and prove Rudy Guede had acted alone in killing Kercher. But it’s also the story of a changing concept of justice, now beholden to public opinion before the burden of proof and innocence until proven guilty. Bremner takes us with her into the courtroom and the TV studio as she pursues Knox’s exoneration, and then to today, examining how #MeToo and the Brett Kavanaugh hearings are an evolution of what began with the Amanda Knox case.
Raffaele Sollecito talks Amanda Knox, hails air of freedom
Murder of Meredith Kercher
More than five years after Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito were first arrested, they face a new murder trial. But instead the young American must continue the struggle to clear her name more than five years after she was first arrested for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia. The decision does not suggest Ms Knox and Mr Sollecito are guilty, simply that the appeals court did not apply the law correctly. We know that. Ms Knox was portrayed as both a she-devil and an innocent abroad during her original trial, after which she and Mr Sollecito were sentenced to 26 and 25 years in jail respectively. The decision to order a retrial looks set to ignite a diplomatic row between Italy and the US, which is unlikely to comply with any request to extradite Ms Knox.

Claims she took shower instead of calling police after discovery of blood...
Following the re-conviction of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito for the murder of student Meredith Kercher, Raffaele has gone on record to distance himself from Amanda. He also encouraged a little suspicion of his ex-girlfriend, explaining that the morning Meredith's body was discovered by police, Amanda demonstrated some odd behaviour. Instead of calling the police, Raffaele says, his girlfriend of only 10 days something we never realised. They were only together for 10 days!? Why did you take a shower? This isn't the first time he's shown a lack of support for Amanda. Raffaele had previously been supportive of Amanda, but now it seems he is in a vulnerable position.
Knox and her then boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted of the gruesome killing in but later freed on appeal. Wearing a hot pink skirt and fishnet tights Knox was often overcome with emotion while addressing a packed crowd at a True Crime festival in New York City. Knox moved to Perugia in Italy, with several other students including Meredith, 21 in September but just a few weeks later her life changed forever. When Knox arrived home on November 2 , she noticed that the front door was open and there was dried blood in the bathroom. An autopsy conducted on her body found that her throat had been slashed and she had been stabbed almost 50 times.
