11:47 EST               27 March 2013

A book written by Amanda Knox ‘will shock you the core’, according to the lawyer who set up her $4m publishing deal.

Robert Barnett insisted the autobiography ‘Waiting to be Heard’ will still be published next month despite an Italian court ordering a re-trial for Knox.

The decision by Italy’s highest court to overturn the 25 year old’s acquittal for the murder of British student Meredith Kercher will also have no effect on her first TV interview to be broadcast on April 30th.

Barnett said Knox’s book about her arrest, trial and eventual release from jail in Italy is ‘very parents nightmare.’

He hinted that the book will contain major revelations that will help sway public opinion in favour of Knox.

He said:’People will see when Amanda Knox goes public with her interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC [on April 30] that she is mature beyond her years.

‘She is extremely smart. She has taken a set of experiences that are almost impossible to imagine and learned from them and marched through them with incredible dignity and respect.

‘What she went through is in some ways every parent’s nightmare, if not every person’s nightmare. She was caught up in a set of terrible circumstances that were not her doing and lost 4½ years of her young life to an inappropriate and improper conviction.

Retrial:

‘While people know the story of the trial, they don’t know the personal story, the family’s story, the prison story and, believe it or not, the legal story.’

Decision: Knox is to face a retrial over the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher

He added to The Hollywood Reporter:’Aspects of that revealed in the book will shock you to the core.’

Barnett helped negotiate an estimated $4m advance for 25 year old Knox following her return to her home in Seattle, Washington, from prison in Perugia, Italy.

The Washington DC based lawyer has previously negotiated book deals for former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary.

Yesterday Amanda Knox collapsed and had to be supported by her boyfriend when she was told she would face a retrial over the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The American was at home with her family in Seattle when she received a phone call at 2am telling her an Italian court had quashed her acquittal for the killing.

She was shattered by the news, and turned to her lover James Terrano in an attempt to ‘keep positive’ despite the new development.

Knox, 25, will not voluntarily return to Italy to stand trial, and is unlikely to be extradited by her native U.S. – she will therefore probably be tried in absentia.

The colour ran from her face as she heard the news,’ a source told the Sun.

Her lawyer phoned her family home in the early hours of the morning after she had gathered relatives and friends together to wait for confirmation of the court’s decision.

‘She hugged James and then the rest of the family,’ the source said. ‘They are trying to keep positive but it is hard.’

Yesterday’s ruling by the supreme court in Rome means the case will be tried again next year.

Judges accepted that there were ‘contradictions’ in the case, quashing the acquittal of Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, 29.

In a dramatic turnaround, the pair, who both spent four years behind bars before they were cleared, were told they must stand trial again for the murder of the 21-year-old British student.

Knox, who has rebuilt her life in her home town of Seattle, cannot be compelled by Italian law to appear at the retrial and might not face extradition for years, if at all.

er lawyer Carlo Dalla Vedova said: ‘Amanda does not intend to come back for the retrial. Her home is in Seattle and she doesn’t need to be here.’

He added that the decision to order a new trial was shocking. ‘She thought that the nightmare was over,’ he said on the steps of the courthouse. ‘But she’s ready to fight.’

Within minutes of the ruling, Knox issued a statement condemning it. The girl known worldwide by her self-awarded nickname ‘Foxy Knoxy’ said: ‘It was painful to receive the news that the Italian supreme court decided to send my case back for revision when the prosecution’s theory of my involvement in Meredith’s murder has been repeatedly revealed to be completely unfounded and unfair.

‘I believe that any questions as to my innocence must be examined by an objective investigation and a capable prosecution.

‘The prosecution responsible for the many discrepancies in their work must be made to answer for them, for Raffaele’s sake, my sake, and most especially for the sake of Meredith’s family.’

December 15th, 2011

The Italian judges who freed Amanda Knox appear to criticize the “obsessive duration” of her interrogation by Italian police and shrugged off Knox’s affectionate antics with her co-defendant in the police station as nothing more than “tenderness between lovers.”

The judges’ comments came in a 143-page detailed explanation of their decision in October to dismiss murder charges against Knox and her then-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

The ruling freed Knox, now 24, and Sollecito, 27, after spending four years in prison convicted of murdering her English roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. A third person, Rudy Guede, was convicted in a separate trial and has exhausted his appeals.

Prosecutor Giuliano Mignini told ABC News that he has read the court’s reasoning, but does not think it is proper for him to comment. Mignini said that he “believes that the chief prosecutor will appeal the sentence.” The prosecution has 45 days to file an appeal.

The judge’s ruling, issued today, dismantled piece by piece the previous conviction and her 26 year prison sentence.

“The evidence, even if taken in its totality, does not prove in any way that Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito are guilty of the murder of Meredith Kercher” and notes that the evidence was largely circumstantial,” the court wrote.

It went on to say that the judges “do not confirm the hypothesis that there were many people necessarily involved in the murder.”

The very “bricks” on which the judges in the first trial built their sentence of Knox and Sollecito “fell away,” the report said.

Not only did these “bricks” get moved, but there was a “lack of materials necessary for their construction,” the judges wrote.

The case against Knox and Sollecito began to collapse when an independent panel of forensics experts appointed by the court challenged the handling and the validity of the DNA evidence used to convict them in the original trial.

The court challenged police tactics during an all night interrogation that prompted Knox at one point to say that she had a “vision” that falsely implicated Patrick Lumumba, a bar owner she worked for. The next morning, Knox tried to retract her statement.

In the report the judges show they are in agreement with Knox’s defense, stating that due to the “obsessive duration of the interrogations” it is “totally comprehensible that she would find herself in a situation of great psychological pressure -? which to call it stress would reduce it -? which makes one doubt the actual spontaneity of the declaration.”

Knox’s statement is evidence of her “great confusion, and not being able to remember what is being asked of her,” the court wrote.

“If Amanda Knox had found herself in the house… at the time of the murder, her easiest way of defending herself was to give the real name of the murderer, who was present in the house, because this would have made her credible, rather than give a name of someone who was totally extraneous,” the court wrote.

Nevertheless, the court upheld Knox’s conviction for slandering Lumumba.

During the first trial and during the appeal, prosecutors highlighted Knox’s at times odd behavior, like doing cartwheels in the police station and snuggling with Sollecito while waiting to be grilled by investigators. They were indications of the Knox’s icy personality and lack of remorse for Kercher’s death.

The judges dismissed those actions as nothing more than “simply tenderness between lovers.”

12:51 p.m., Monday, October 3, 2011

Amanda Knox has been acquitted.

After nearly four years behind bars, an Italian jury has overturned Knox’s conviction for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher, setting the stage for her an emotional homecoming to Knox’s native Seattle.

The courtroom erupted with cries of joy as the presiding judge read the verdict after a long day of deliberations, wrapping up an appeals trial that lasted nearly a year.

The news that Amanda would go free set off a frenzy among the more than 400 accredited journalists, who set off immediately for Capanne prison, to chronicle her release.

The long-awaited and controversial decision is an embarrassing judicial slapdown of the work of the forensic investigators in Italy, a country struggling to bring about necessary reforms in its justice system.

And it is almost certain that the acquittal will trigger a series of side investigations to remedy the failures of the system that locked up Knox unjustly on shaky evidence.

While Knox’s legal team presented much more cohesive defense strategy, the key turning point in her bizarre appeal was having the court-appointed independent expert review of two pieces of evidence go her way.

The experts delivered a scathing 145-page report criticizing Italian forensic police for dozens of errors in crime scene investigation and evidence handling. The experts cast serious doubt on the admissibility of DNA results found on the butcher knife believed to be the murder weapon (police said it had Knox’s DNA on the handle and Kercher’s DNA on the blade), and a bra clasp of Kercher’s. The bra clasp supposedly contained the DNA of Raffaele Sollecito, Knox’s former boyfriend and codefendant.

No detail of Knox’s defense was overlooked. Even her image was successfully rebuilt — gone were the Beatles hoodies and T-shirts, traded in for sober and conservative court-appropriate attire. Her defense team’s closing arguments were delivered smoothly, convincingly and with heartfelt warmth that the jury could feel.

But in the end, it was the persistent, meticulous effort to raise questions about every single piece of evidence that provided the jury with exactly what Amanda Knox needed: Reasonable Doubt.

In a surprising decision, the verdict was broadcast live with all cameras trained on Amanda Knox, Raffaele Sollecito, their families and of course the presiding judge, a side judge and six jurors, five of them women. One reporter from each news organization was allowed in the courtroom or press room in order to accommodate all. A number of the networks and larger news agency came with multiple-person teams and had to choose just one representative to hear the news first.

The scene outside the courthouse Monday evening was unlike anything Perugia had ever seen, a surreal atmosphere that eclipsing even the wild mass of people who had gathered for the first verdict in December 2009, which came after a sensational nine-month trial, two years after the original murder, in November 2007, just months after both Knox and Kercher first arrived for study abroad programs in this bucolic hilltop city of Umbria.

Kercher’s body, with multiple stab wounds and more than 40 lesions all together, was found in a pool of blood on the floor of her own bedroom in Via Della Pergola 7, the morning of Nov. 2, 2007. A duvet had been pulled up over her bloodied, partially naked body. Four days later, Knox and Sollecito were arrested after long night of questioning that ended when Knox broke down and implicated a Congolese pub owner, Patrick Lumumba, in the crime. She had no lawyer present, and her defense attorneys have maintained she was coerced. In December 2009, Knox and Sollecito were convicted of murder and other related charges and sentenced to 26 and 25 years, respectively.

The first trial and Knox’s appeal has fascinated audiences worldwide. Knox, a Seattle native, now 24, and Raffaele Sollecito, the Italian computer engineering student from Bari who she was dating at the time, were convicted in December 2009 of murdering Knox’s British roommate Meredith Kercher in a drug-fueled sexual assault.

Kercher’s mother, Arline, sister, Stephanie, and brother, Lyle, were in the courtroom for the verdict and said they will hold a hold conference Tuesday and give their reaction to the verdict. Earlier in the day, they recalled fondly their daughter and sister, wiping away tears as they described what a loving person she was and how fond as of Perugia, where she had come on an exchange from the University of Leeds.

Knox’s friends and family have been faithfully pressing the case for the release of their daughter, who has spent four difficult years both under the spotlight and behind bars.

“We won’t rest until we can bring her home,” Curt Knox told the BBC early Monday.

The case has had an intense international media following, and inspired a number of books and even movies. In the U.S., the Italian judicial system has come under harsh criticism, while many in Europe have defended the process that convicted Knox.

Knox’s position improved significantly during her appeal, especially after an independent review of the evidence harshly criticized two key pieces of DNA evidence the prosecution has presented.

The review raised doubt about the admissibility of Sollecito’s DNA on Kercher’s bra clasp, as well as the trace amount of Kercher’s DNA allegedly found on the kitchen knife the prosecution claimed was the murder weapon. The prosecution stood by the work of the forensic police, however, accusing the experts of “scientific falsification” saying no contamination had been proven and noting that not all experts agree on the amount of DNA that is acceptable. In the last hearings before the appeals jury, prosecutors took pains to point out a number of other items of circumstantial evidence that they felt proved her involvement.

The defense argued she was a suspect from the get-go and then became the victim of a series of investigative errors. “This investigation was a sailboat going off in one direction, unable to change its route,” Carlo Dalla Vedova told the court.

On Monday, Knox herself gave a heartfelt but determined plea to win her freedom in a statement before deliberations began.

When a nervous Knox stood to address the court, she seemed close to losing her composure. A dropped pin could have been heard in the courtroom.

Her lawyer reached over and squeezed her hand. The judge said she could sit if she preferred, but she took a deep breath and began her remarks. She gained confidence as she addressed jurors for about 10 minutes, telling them of her ordeal, describing how her faith in the authorities had been betrayed, and pleading that they right a judicial wrong.

She has suffered during four years of unjust incarceration, Knox said, insisting she spent the night of Nov. 1, 2007 with her Italian boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito when her British flatmate, Meredith Kercher, was killed, an event she said shocked and scared her.

“She had her bedroom next to mine. She was killed in our house. If I had been there that night, I would be dead, like her,” Knox said, her voice quivering at moments. “But I was not there. I was with Raffaele. Thank God he was there. I didn’t have anyone. He was everything to me in that moment.”

She may have been a little disorderly and carefree, but had a good relationship with her roommates, including Meredith, she said, who often worried about her when she went to work at night. Knox said she had been misunderstood over the course of the last four years and insisted she had nothing to do with Kercher’s murder.

“I did not kill. I did not rape. I did not steal. I was not there. I was not present at this crime.”

She then said she had no intention of trying to escape from the truth, as prosecutors had implied in the newspapers over the weekend.

“I will not flee the truth. I insist on the truth,” she said. “Our innocence is real and deserves to be recognized.”

Though less convincing, Raffaele Sollecito also addressed the court, saying how much he had suffered spending 20 hours a day in a 2-by-3 meter cell for more than 1,400 days. At the end of his remarks he took off the “Free Amanda and Raffaele” bracelet he always wears, saying it was a “gift” to the court. He talked of all that it symbolized for him, calling it “a concentrate of various emotions, a desire for justice and the light in this dark tunnel.” He urged the jury to acquit, saying he and Amanda deserve a new, hopeful future.

As the morning’s court statements came to an end, presiding Judge Claudio Pratillo Hellman warned the court that “this is not a soccer match” and urged all parties to respect the court’s decision and remain silent when the verdict is read.
