The Florence courts have scheduled Rudy Guede’s next court date on January 10, 2017. Guede will provide documents to support his stance that he deserves a new trial. Rudy Guede was found to have participated with others in the murder of Meredith Kercher. This was confirmed by the Italian Supreme Court when they acquitted Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito.
Rudy Guede was the third person accused of murdering Meredith Kercher along with Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito in 2007. Guede’s lawyer at the time, decided to hold his trial separately since he was the only black man and his lawyer knew that Knox and Sollecito’s defense team would try to pin everything on him.
Guede was found guilty in 2008 while Knox and Sollecito were found guilty in 2009. Rudy was sentenced to 30 years which was reduced to a 16 year sentence since he was only considered an accomplice to the crime. The courts did not believe that Rudy acted alone, but that he was there. This was reiterated by the Italian Supreme court’s final report after they acquitted Knox and Sollecito in 2015.
Amanda Knox recently wrote an article claiming that woman are more susceptible to confessing to a crime that they didn’t commit. Regardless of whether that is the case or not, the fact is that Amanda Knox was not influenced by patriarchal pressure to submit to police pressure. Far from it as shown in the new book: The Manipulative Memoir of Amanda Knox Part 2.
While some may debate whether she was involved or not, it is an ineluctable fact that Amanda Knox has made a considerable fortune from the murder of Meredith Kercher. Even after raking in millions from her book deal, interviews and donations, Amanda Knox and her family have always claimed to be destitute from the legal fees. However, it turns out that President Donald Trump paid Amanda’s legal tab. No only this, she never even thanked him for it.
Amanda Knox’s documentary was released in September 2016. The film was created by ardent long-time supporters of Knox. The film centered around Amanda’s experience of the tragic death of a 21-year-old British exchange student Meredith Kercher. The documentary flashed many crime scene photographs, including some showing Meredith’s lifeless body. These photos were included ostensibly without permission from the victim’s family. After the movie aired, many incomprehensibly turned to social media to attack a journalist name Nick Pisa.
