Next for Knox: Can decide how to tell her story
SEATTLE (AP) — Even as she reconnects with family and freedom, Amanda Knox can plan how to tell her own story.
The former American exchange student could get a book deal that easily reaches seven figures — and help pay back her family the money they spent to overturn her murder conviction in the death of her roommate in Italy.
Speaking fees could earn her $50,000.
Plus there are the movie rights.
And with all the money comes the chance to counter the lingering suspicion of some people around the world that she might have had something to do with Meredith Kercher's death. It was a sentiment expressed just Wednesday by an Italian judge who voted to overturn her conviction.
