I don't know the whole story yet, but I feel sympathy for her, it must have been a terrible nightmare years. I hope they will find the real criminal as soon as possible.

Thanks for posting, almost. This article was the best I have read on the topic.

Rudy Guede is serving his sentence. That is all you need to know about it.

Yes, Rolling Stone is the place where Charlie McGee decided to go tell her story; Honest, Big, Nationwide, No ties to the government.

Time wil tell... there will be yet another appeal, this time by the prosecution who are convinced she is guilty.

From what I can tell, it looks like the case against her is pretty shoddy, and the result of an overly imaginitive prosecution rather than anything based on law or even reality. Of course, that could be just that she's getting better PR over here than in Italy.

It is an interesting case, though, if for no other reason than to see how the legal system works (or doesn't) in other countries. Would she be in prison right now had she been an Italian national?

The problem, seems to me, is that everyone followed the sex when they should have followed the drugs.

Incompetent forensic scientists. Contaminated evidence. I doubt that the prosecution could present a valid appeal now. She may court celebrity for a while but she will also have to endure suspicious looks in public places for the rest of her days.

You may be right Pedro, but the prosecution has vowed to appeal when and after the reasons for the judgment are given by the judge. That is said to take about four months.
