    If you take the short track trial and other factors he got the SAME sentence as the other killers. If they take the short track trial they get the SAME deal. Is that the deal that is being spoken about???

    Can it be explained how it is different?

    It seems simple to understand so I can't figure out why it is even being debated.
    It appears that there is some attempt to imply that Guede was treated differently from all others, or that he had special treatment. Now that "deal" has been explained as the legal right to the reduction in sentence based on the abbreviated trial option, time served awaiting trial, sentence reduction for good behavior, and standard parole eligibility, it is transparent that the objection to the "deal" is in reality an objection to EU laws governing young adults that commit murder.

    imo, this only verifies most strongly that the event did, in fact, occur.
    It's amusing that authors that write about the case are labelled one way or another based on whether Knox supporters approve or disapprove of the book contents.

    There are no deals in Italian law. There are choices. Knox had the choice of opting for an abbreviated trial, or to choose a regular trial. She chose the regular trial. That meant seven years of court appearances and still no conclusion. Guede chose the abbreviated trial. That meant guilt was assumed, he immediately began serving his sentence, and he was guaranted reduction of sentence at the time his sentence was confirmed by the Supreme Court. When his sentence was confirmed to be equal to that of Sollecito and Knox, his sentence was automatically reduced by one third.

    It quite surprising that seven years after this happened, there are still misunderstandings about the process.

    it's amusing to post the truth about the viewpoint of an author? i guess anything to try to refute, diminish, negate a valid point...

    the fact that guede changed his story -as posted earlier- and implicated both knox and sollecito, is sufficient proof for many that deal was made. off the record.

    oh wait!! -- if there are "no deals in italian law", please explain the plea deals by the prosecution re: the costa concordia: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe...584507813.html

    and, there are no "misunderstandings". some things are plain as day. (see above point).
