Amanda Opens Up About The New Verdict
After spending four years in an Italian prison, Amanda was ruled innocent in 2011. She was able to return home to the United States and released a book.
But on Jan. 30, 2014, an Italian appeals court re-condivcted her as guilty of murder and sentenced her to 28 and a half years.
Amanda is expected to appeal and says she will not return to Italy.
“This really has hit me like a train,” Amanda told Robin on GMA. “I did not expect this to happen. I really expected so much better from the Italian justice system. They found me innocent before, how could they [now] say that it’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt?”
“I will never go willingly back to the place where I … I’m going to fight this until the very end. It’s not right. It’s not fair. And I’m going to do everything I can. Granted, I need a lot of help. I can’t do this on my own. I can’t help people understand this on my own. There are people who know better than I do the way these systems work, and the way that there was this entirely preventable thing that happened that was systematic. I really hope that people try to understand that when you have overzealous prosecutors and when you have a biased investigation and coercive interrogations, these things happen. I’m not crazy.”
“I just really hope that people look beyond me in this case, and look to what has happened. Really look at the people, really look at the situation, really look at the systems. Really look at the aspects of these systems that allowed for these things to happen, so that it’s comprehensible…. I hope that people believe me, but I think the answers are out there. I really, really ask that people try to look for those.”
