If you have been following the Amanda Knox trial the jury has the case and they expect a verdict at any point today. 

It's really interesting how the courts work in Italy.  The jury is made up of eight people, six Italian citizens and two judges.  If there is a tie the judges get to vote twice, so it doesn't sound like they need a unanimous 'guilty' verdict convict someone of a crime. 

So what do you think they will decide?  Do you think she is guilty?

That poor girl and her family

I'm really torn on this situation.  Ultimately the people that truly are suffering is the family of the young girl that was murdered.   I believe Knox should get a fair trial and if she didn't then she should appeal but there had to a reason they found her guilty.

There had to be a reason?

Maybe there did have to be a reason, but that doesn't mean ti was a valid one, or that justice was served.
