CBS News is airing an in-depth special on the case, and the details of her incarceration are so tragic.
Horrifying details are now emerging about the struggles Amanda Knox went through while trapped in an Italian jail cell for a murder she was later cleared of. Shockingly, she admits that she faced intense sexual harassment while incarcerated — how awful!
Amanda, 24, was convicted in 2009 for the 2007 killing of her roommate Meredith Kercher, but she was cleared of the crimes on appeal in Italian court on Oct. 3. In advance of a CBS News special about Amanda, reporter Peter Van Sant discussed some of the struggles Amanda went through while in jail.
“We learn about sexual harassment inside prison where an administrator would take her up to his office alone at night and say a number of inappropriate things to her, and that left Amanda terrified,” he said.
To find out more about Amanda’s terrifying journey, watch 48 Hours Mystery, airing Oct. 8 at 10 p.m ET on CBS.
