Amanda Knox News: Knox Rides Bike to Seattle Goodwill Ahead of Conviction Appeal

March 17, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Amanda Knox took some time out of preparing her appeal of the murder conviction upheld in the recent retrial of Meredith Kercher’s death to ride a bicycle to a local Goodwill store.

Knox, 26, was convicted along with her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito to many years in prison for killing Kercher while they were students in Italy in 2007.

Knox was sentenced to 28 years in prison while Sollecito was sentenced to 25 years.

Their original conviction was thrown out by a higher court but the Italian Supreme Court upheld the original conviction, prompting Knox and her supporters to cry foul.

Now living in Seattle, Knox is preparing to launch an appeal of the conviction.

I am frightened and saddened by this unjust verdict,” Knox wrote after the ruling. “Having been found innocent before, I expected better from the Italian justice system.”

It’s not clear whether she would be extradited at some point. The Daily Mail reported that the U.S. Supreme Court must confirm Knox’s guilty verdict before Italy can apply for extraditoin.

Sollecito still lives in Italy.

Rudey Guede, who was also convicted in the case, has been serving a 16-year sentence for years and was recently let out during the day for schooling.
