Amanda Knox

The newspapers are still full of the Amanda Knox story. Late on Friday evening she was jailed for 26 years after being found guilty of murdering her flat-mate in Perugia. I am still not convinced of the outcome, the DNA evidence looked flimsy at best and I am sure the appeal, when it inevitably happens, will focus on this. It has been an interesting insight into just how much the criminal justice system in Italy differs to that of the UK and US. I fear this case will run and run for a number of years yet.
