The guilty verdict is not yet final. The defense attorneys for the two defendants announced that they would appeal. The prosecutor had demanded prison terms of 30 years for Knox and 26 years for Sollecito.
The decision in Florence, however, is unlikely to mean the end of the legal dispute that has been going on for over six years. The Italian Supreme Court has to confirm the judgment. And that can take a year or even longer.
Theoretically, one of the two sides could then appeal. Another appeal against Knox and Sollecito would then follow before the highest Italian court. Legal experts consider it unlikely that Italy would attempt to extradite the US student before a final verdict.
Knox, 26, was in her hometown of Seattle, Washington at the time of the sentencing. In an email to the court, Knox said she stayed away from the trial for fear of being wrongly convicted. According to her lawyer, she is said to have reacted petrified to the judgment, but not cried. "I am shocked and saddened by this unjust judgment"she said in a statement.

The 27-year-old has been occasionally for months "West Seattle Herald" worked, reports the online portal "The Daily Beast". Now she has been upgraded to the status of a permanent freelancer who works regularly for the newspaper. She should write about local things there. Her subjects are human fates, but also school theater performances and the like.
Online editor Patrick Robinson, who works with "The Daily Beast" said the former journalism student Knox was originally approached to help her lead a normal life. Of course, the collaboration has nothing to do with her fame because of her case. In the beginning she wrote under a pseudonym.
"She showed us some of her work, and it was good." After she started, she switched to writing under her real name at some point. "Amanda is a very smart, capable, and highly skilled writer"says Robinson, who appears to be Knox’s biggest fan. She has been through a lot, but she is very pleasant to work with and Knox is very interested and hardworking.
She is also exceptional as a photographer. "It doesn’t matter what people say or think"says Robinson. "The truth is, she lives and grew up in West Seattle." Why shouldn’t you give her the opportunity to have a "human being" instead of one "Celebrity" to be in the negative sense.
The editor is indifferent to the fact that Knox is possibly a murderer: the allegations of the Italian judiciary went "the newspaper nothing". The verdict had little to nothing to do with hers "relationship" to do the newspaper.
