This week we will be discussing the Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito case with our guest Luca Cheli.

In December of 2009, Amanda Knox & Raffaele Sollecito were wrongfully convicted for the 2007 murder of Meredith Kercher, in Perugia Italy. In October of 2011, Amanda and Raffaele were declared innocent on appeal and were released from prison. In March of 2013, the Italian Supreme Court overturned the acquittals and ordered the case back to the appellate level. In January of this year, an appeals court in Florence reinstated the guilty verdicts for the two. The presiding Judge Allasandro Nencini released a motivation document in April explaining the decision.

The first detailed analysis of Nencini's ruling titled “Knox and Sollecito: Dissection of a Conviction” is now available in English on wrongfulconvictionnews.com. This excellent analysis was written by Luca Cheli. Luca is a member of our advisory board and he is a key advocate working with Injustice Anywhere.

We are happy to have Luca back on the show to discuss his latest analysis.
