Getting her voice back. Amanda Knox is reflecting on her life since being able to tell her story.
Knox, 34, became a household name after she was wrongfully convicted of a crime she did not commit while studying abroad in Perugia, Italy at the age of 20.
Following the 2007 murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher, Knox was found guilty and sentenced to 26 years in prison, along with her then-boyfriend Rafaele Sollecito, who received a 25-year sentence.
After the conviction was later overturned in 2013, both Knox and Sollecito were then re-tried and re-convicted before being officially exonerated in 2015.
Although her name has been cleared, Knox is still living a completely different life than the one she had when she first stepped on the plane to Italy all those years ago — and is now sharing her truth.
During an appearance on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast with Alex Cooper, the exoneree, 34, detailed how that one day back in 2007 changed her life forever, and she is “still angry” about it.
After spending nearly four years behind bars, Knox admitted to the podcast host, “I’m still angry,” about her “unfair” situation, especially when talking about Rudy Guede, the man who was actually responsible for Kercher’s death.
“I don’t think that my name ever should have been associated with his actions,” she said, “And the fact that no one seems to really care about him, given that they were his actions, really bugs me out.”
Guede is currently the only person convicted of Kercher’s murder, athlough he has since been released from prison following his 16-year sentence.
During the podcast episode, Knox also touched on how she plans to handle telling her newborn daughter about her complicated history one day — a conversation she is “not looking forward to.”
Knox shares the baby girl — named Eureka Muse Knox Robinson — with her husband Chris Robinson, who she married in 2018.
“I have thought about [telling my daughter] a lot,” she told Cooper, noting that she is most dreading the moment when her daughter realizes her mom’s situation was “not fair.”
“Because like when you reach the point of understanding whether or not something is fair or not, you’ve reached a level of sophistication to understand a level of human suffering that can be deep,” she continued. “Life really isn’t fair.”
“I’m going to let her guide her own understanding of my case,” Knox added, “She’ll ask questions, she’ll want to know.”
“She’s going to know from being around me that there’s something about this justice system that is a little questionable, and when she’s ready she’ll ask me,” she continued. “And I’m going to be totally honest.”
