Two years after being accused of murder, Amanda Knox has now been sentenced to 26 years in prison for the murder of her British roommate. Raffaele Sollecito, her ex-boyfriend, has been sentenced to 25 years.
Her family and friends are devastated, and her parents intend to push forward in fighting this sentence and undoing the charges against their daughter Amanda. Knox "began weeping and [murmuring], 'No, no,'" and subsequently hugged her lawyers.
There is much blame being fired at the Italian court, saying they were not handling the matter properly and that the defense for Amanda Knox argues that she is radically different from how the court has portrayed her.
