    Yes, "double jeopardy" is complex, but it can be reduced to a simple statement to make a complex point simple.


    BBM: This last "Appeal" was NOT a retry of the case:

    A retry would have been done in the TRIAL Court in Italy -- this was done in the Appeals Court.

    Also, individual countries, states, etc. have their own system, or method, of how their "appeals" work ...

    Reasonable doubt does NOT equal beyond ALL doubt.

    In order for her to be innocent...one must make a boat load of excuses & unreasonable conclusions for everything from her ridiculous lies, actions, evidence and contradictions in their stories (lies)

    Guede is eligible for parole after serving half the sentence and, with good behavior, it is reduced by another year. Sollecito, with 21 years left to serve, could be eligible for parole after 10.5 years minus 1-2 for good behavior.

    I was in Perugia last year and it isn't just Americans who think Sollectio and Amanda Knox are being unduly prosecuted. MANY Italians recognize the unsavory tactics of the shady, underhanded prosecutor Mignini. He openly promoted his Satanic cult theory and without a shred of information to support it, he claimed that Knox and Sollecito are members. He is on a vendetta and presents his wild imaginings as evidence. Many Italians openly question not only his judgement & honesty but his own sanity. He should be locked up.

    I trust the Italian Supreme Court will overturn this latest fiasco.

    If he had just plead guilty like Guede and served his time, he'd be getting close to a release already.

    I believe they are all working off tainted evidence and the falsehood of convicted prosecutor who dreamed up the case.

    HE did this in a prior case and was convicted of it.

    This is not justice.

    Guede did not plead guilty. Guede went the fast track trial route. Guede still contends that he is innocent of killing Meredith and that he had a "date" with her that night to explain all of the evidence against him.

    Galati handled the appeal to scc and Crini prosecuted the case in the Nencini court. Why would they support Mignini if his case was based on a satonic ritual?

    Mignini did not argue this case in the current venue.

    I'm sorry but Mignini has not been convicted of anything.

    Totally off topic - That's so interesting. Tom Hanks and Dean Koontz share the day. I guess if you are born on July 9th, you are going to be famous one way or another :eek:

    Actually, the original prosecutor was not convicted of anything.

    Additionally, the appeal was handled by a completely different prosecutor.

    Respectfully, this case is NOT in Alabama -- this case is in Italy.

    I have followed this case for years now, and I have gained a lot of knowledge as to how the judicial system works in Italy ... and it's "3 tier court system" is what we have here in the Louisiana state court system :

    1. A Trial Court . . . 2. An Appellate Court . . . 3. A Supreme Court

    Also, Louisiana is a "civil law" state, and so is Italy.

    And it takes YEARS and years for a case to go through the ENTIRE judicial process when you have 3 courts to go through ...
