Amanda Knox Tells Court She's Innocent

Amanda Knox Makes Her Final Plea in Perugia

You couldn't blame anyone casually following the Amanda Knox case over the past four years for being confused. But today, the American college student convicted of murdering her British roommate Meredith Kercher after alleged "sex games" gone wrong tried to make it very clear that she is innocent. In fluent Italian, Amanda begged the court to let her go home, saying "I did not do the things they say I did. I did not kill, rape or steal. I was not there." Her appeal, which came after a trial filled with tainted evidence and bizarre behavior by Italian officials and Amanda herself, is coming to a close. A panel of two professional and six lay judges are expected to reach a decision soon on whether her 26-year sentence will stand, or she will be allowed to return home to Seattle. Watch Amanda's final plea with subtitles now, and tell us what you make of it all in the comments.
