Amanda Knox Poses In Her Old Prison Uniform
Amanda Knox is taking a stroll down memory lane in preparation for her wedding. On Sunday, January 19, the ex-convict, who was wrongfully convicted of murder, posted a snap of herself wearing her old prison uniform on Instagram.
The 32-year-old captioned the photo, “40 days left until the wedding and 267 tasks left on the wedding To Do List.” She added, “I’ve locked myself in the craft room and I’m wearing my old prison uniform in Casa Circondariale Capanne, Perugia.”
Over the summer Amanda and her fiancé Christopher Robinson made headlines with a new wedding website where they asked for donations to help crowd-fund their space theme wedding celebration.
In the comment section of the registry, the couple wrote, “Let’s face it, we don’t need any more stuff. What we do need is help putting on the best party ever for our family and friends!”

The statement continued, “Instead of a traditional registry, we are asking for donations towards the cost of the wedding. Whether you’re attending or not, all are welcome to donate to specific costs, or at a patron level.”
The registry also noted that those who did donate would receive a signed, limited edition copy of Amanda and Christopher’s joint book of love poems The Cardio Tesseract.
In 2007, the world was introduced to Amanda, who was twenty at the time, when she was accused and wrongfully convicted of the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy. Meredith, who was 21 at the time, was found half-naked with her throat cut in her bedroom. Amanda’s then-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito was also accused. Prosecutors alleged that the crime had taken place during a sex game gone wrong even though the evidence against the couple was insufficient to prove so.
In 2011 after spending four years in prison, Amanda and Raffaele were freed after an appeals court acquitted them. However, the two were convicted again in 2013 before being acquitted again in 2015. In 2019, Amanda returned to Italy, where she appeared as a guest speaker on a panel discussion on wrongful convictions organized by the non-profit group, the Innocence Project.
