Yes, it was legally decided that he did not act alone, that three were involved.

So, who were his accomplices then?

Tom
Im guessing this question is not to me but really I have no idea, has this third man accused knox and the boyfriend?

Stating the blatantly obvious here, but as the Brit girl was raped, then there was DNA evidence. What were the findings there?
Maybe with Italy facing so much financial crisis continuing to hear appeal after appeal and all the work involved they just dropped it and booted her out of the country. I mean if we can acquit Casey Anthony, the Italians can find it in their hearts to return another young American girl back to the streets in the US as well.

About "it was legally decided that he did not act alone"

How on earth can you decide that? What evidence was there that there was more than one person involved?

Re: Knox case...

There was Knox DNA on the knife, Sollecito DNA on the bra, they both lied about where they were that night (still no official version despite the appeal) Knox wrongly accused a black guy to divert the investigation away form her.
But not enough evidence, or not gathered properly by italian police, to prove their involvment. It reminds me of Casey Anthony if you've heard of this case.

Definition of rape can mean anything inserted into an unwilling recipient, can't it? Women can therefore rape women I believe? Don't ask me for a reference, I've just always thought that this was a true statement, I haven't studied law.

Just to be fair. Amanda lived in the same apartment didn't she? So, her having DNA evidence on a knife in an apartment they shared doesn't seem such a reach. Also blood on a kitchen knife can easily be attained to cooking in the kitchen, getting a splinter out, or anything.
DNA evidence on the bra? This stuff is not enough. But there was a girl killed, in an apartment, where some of the defendants were at the same time, with mixed stories. Until they can prove they weren't there, and an additional person came in there, while they were there, and killed the victim, it still looks like they did it.

There was Knox's DNA on a knife, but that knife probably wasn't the one used in the murder, and in any case the DNA was contaminated , and there wasn't enough anyway and the lab bungled the procedures so the DNA evidence is unsafe, and so is ignored. Without the DNA evidence, the case collapses.

The problem with both of these cases is that the burden of proof lies with the prosecutor to prove beyond reasonable doubt that they committed the crime. If there simply isn't enough evidence then they are not guilty

I know the Italian police involved here came under criticism but I am sure even they would have found the "anything inserted" which would have been a good source of strong DNA evidence?

I mean the people involved did not manage to get rid of the knife used so it is hard to believe they would have successfully hidden anything else.

Re: Knox case...

She wouldn't have to.

In Italy, the fact of one's presence during a crime makes one collectively responsible, even if you stand by and do nothing.

The only DNA found on Meredith's body was from Rudy Guede. That would make the assumption that there was some kind of botched sex game between the four, which was the prosecutors argument, null and void.

She was acquitted of the murder charge. She got three years for false accusation.
So her official tariff for false accusation was time served and €20k to the bar owner? Got a source for that?

If it can be proven beyond reasonable doubt that you were there at the time and in a position to "do something".

Was this proven to this standard during the case?

Re: Knox case...

Does anyone else have the similar feeling like after OJ's acquittal that no one else is really being sought for the crime?
