An Emotional Amanda Knox Tells ABC She Won’t ‘Willingly’ Go Back to Italy after Murder Conviction
On Thursday, an Italian court found Amanda Knox guilty of murdering her roommate after a previous court had acquitted her of the charge. Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday, a “clearly emotional” Knox told Robin Roberts that she “couldn’t believe what she was hearing” when she was found guilty and sentenced to more than 28 years in prison.
“I did not expect this to happen,” Knox said. “I really expected so much better from the Italian justice system. They found me innocent once before.”
Knox had spent 4 years in an Italian prison before her conviction was overturned in 2011. “This is wrong,” the 26-year-old said, “and I’m going to do everything I can to prove it.”
Knox insisted that she does not intend to go back to Italy “willingly”
