It’s been over 10 years since the murder of Meredith Kercher, British exchange student killer while studying abroad in Italy. That crime sent an innocent American student named Amanda Knox to prison for four years . At just 20 years old Knox became embroiled in an international scandal that captivated the world. The guilty verdict at Knox's initial trial and her 26-year sentence caused international controversy, as U.S. forensic experts thought evidence at the crime scene didn’t make sense. After her eventual release, Amanda returned to the United States to rebuild her life. Amanda was the first guest on season 2 of Wrongful Conviction as we begin this, our seventh season, we are looking back.
