Could Amanda Knox Be Extradited to Italy?


Today’s ruling by Italy’s Supreme Court ordering a new murder trial for Amanda Knox guarantees the legal drama will drag on for several more years and will be expensive. It also raises the possibility that if Knox is found guilty and that verdict is upheld by Italy’s Supreme Court, Knox could eventually face a request to extradite her and put her back in prison.

    I’d be buying a plane ticket for the warmest country without an extradition treaty with Italy.

    The US will never extradite her.

      @SarahMcPants  Yeah, it is very unlikely the US would subject one of it’s citizens to double jeopardy, but that’s not fun for the media to talk about.

    I’m just surprised that double jeopardy is something that still exists in a western court system.

      @Clover leaf
       Surprised because you think it shouldn’t exist or because you have little faith in western court systems?

    The Italians will make her an offer she can’t refuse…or she sleeps with the fishes!

    Investigators were the keystone cops, but her and her dude definitly did some very strange things.  I tend to think she is a little sociopath.

    C. Regardless of the verdict, she is innocent and can tell them to go fuck themselves.

    Many European countries refuse to extradite people to the US unless the death penalty is withdrawn as an option; as a matter of jurisprudence, the US should exercise an American citizen’s right against double jeopardy and refuse to extradite her.

        March 27, 2013 at 7:26 pm

        @zel He was found guilty of a sexual act with a minor about 35 years ago. Before he could be sentence, he flew back home to Poland. There is still an arrest warrant out for him. Even when he is nominated or wins any award like an Oscar or Golden Globe, he never will come back to the US.
         
        There’s a lot more to the story than that, but the point is that he wasn’t extradited back to the U.S.

    It’s beyond me how anyone in this country who is fortunate enough to be protected by the Fifth Amendment could support extraditing an American to another country to be tried a second time for a crime they were already acquitted. It must take great ignorance or a total lack of empathy. I fully expect Fez to be righteously demanding her extradition today, prove me wrong Big Cat.

      @TemporalGrid  fex might support her because she was Bi with the girl she was not guilty of killing

        @ecupirate I’m not so sure his support for gay is greater than his contempt for women.

      @TemporalGrid What if she is truly guilty, though? Do you honestly believe that being an American trumps being a killer?   People cry all the time over killers getting off on technicalities.  While I agree with the notion of the protection against double jeopardy, it’s not ignorance or a lack of empathy which makes me consider the situation thoughtfully.

      • TemporalGrid

        March 27, 2013 at 11:45 am

        @fuchubh I think the right to a fair trial, including assurance that you won’t face double jeopardy, trumps being a killer. I don’t believe that anyone should be able to keep trying you in court until they can get a conviction after you’re found not guilty. The United States should not extradite anyone to face double jeopardy in another country (as someone else pointed out here, other countries won’t extradite for us if they don’t like aspects of our judicial system). I’ve been annoyed when killers have gotten off before but I would never advocate someone being tried twice if they were found not guilty.

        @fuchubh @TemporalGrid even if she confessed to the crime. We have double jeopardy. The evidence against her was weak, but that aside they had Thier shot and failed. We should not send her back so they can have a do-over. Our system protects our citizens from that. Therefore she will not be extradited.

    A few years ago I would have said she is too hot for prison and we should wage nuclear war on those greasy Italians, but now that she is getting long in the tooth it seems hardly worth it.
