Knox is likely to be tried in absentia. The Seattle student returned home immediately after her release and the United States does not normally extradite its citizens to face legal action.

But they want foreign accused to be extradited to America though.

Knox has been repeatedly painted by her accusers as a seductive “she-devil” who had an unhealthy obsession with sex, while her defense has insisted she is simply a naive girl-next-door, a yoga lover whose nickname “Foxy Knoxy” referred to her childhood football skills.

That is hilarious...

The U.S. will never send Knox back to Italy to stand trial. Italy will try hard to have her returned, but it isn't going to happen. The U.S. as a country believes that a person can't be tried twice for the same charge, as in this case. Italy already had its chance. It can't keep trying over and over again until it gets a verdict it wants. The legal system isn't perfect. If the prosecution makes a mistake, it has to pay for it. Simple as pizza! Knox can never return to Italy, but that is the very least of her worries.

Whomever killed the woman in Italy, is vile, just rotten to the core and may the burn in hell, no matter what Italian or American courts say. We all know nobody can slash their own throat and do it 47 times, so somebody did this to her.

Bryan -- exactly. This is why the U.S. has the "double jeopardy" laws. If the Italian justice system erred by finding her ot guilty, they don't get a second chance.

It's surely a problem for her agent that she won't be able to go to Europe do the promotion of her book and movie... The case is bizarre, but when you can't prove, well free the suspects. It's better to have a murderer running free, rather an innocent in jail while an unknown murderer is free.

Too late, they are gone. The italian justice system should have gotten it right the first time around. Now, it is too late.

wonder if the court outcome would have been different if the Judge let some of that inadmissable evidence to trial
