Amanda Knox sparks outcry after posing in prison uniform she wore while serving sentence for Meredith Kercher murder – The Sun

AMANDA Knox has sparked outrage after posing in the prison uniform she wore while serving a prison sentence for the murder of Meredith Kercher.

The 32-year-old said in her Instagram post that she was wearing the sweatpants and sweater as she got to work planning her wedding next month, prompting one person to write: "This is sick AF."

"[Forty] days left until the wedding and 267 tasks left on the wedding To Do list. I've locked myself in the craftroom and I'm wearing my old prison uniform," wrote Knox.

"Literally the very same sweatshirt and sweatpants I lived in in Casa Circondariale Capanne, Perugia."

In response to this, one follower wrote: "Ur gross and guilty."

There was also a number of people supporting Knox however, with one stating: "Reclaiming those sweatpants!!!"

Another wrote: "Glad you are able to put that terrible chapter in your life behind you."

Many also shared their excitement for Amanda's upcoming wedding, despite the fact that she was married over a year ago.

Official records obtained by The Sun show that Amanda and Christopher Robinson were married in December 2018, and then purchased a $715,000 waterfront home with another couple in March of last year.

That home sits on an island that is only accessible by ferry, and the hope is hidden away in a residential neighborhood.

Amanda is still asking for fans to donate thousands for her wedding though, promising each a copy of the book of poems she wrote with her husband.

Amanda Knox and her former boyfriend, Raffaelle Sollecito, were convicted of the murder of Meredith Kercher in 2009, two years after her body was found in a home she shared with Knox.

That conviction was then overturned in 2011, but the court did uphold Knox's slander conviction for wrongly accusing Congolese-born bar owner Diya Lumumba in the murder.

It reduced the slander sentence to three years, for which Knox received credit for time served.

Knox spent nearly four years in jail after being convicted, and had been sentenced to 26 years following her initial trial.

The court battle went on for close to eight years, with flip-flop decisions that saw her return to the United States after being acquitted only to face another trial after that acquittal was thrown out.

She then faced her second appeals trial and high court proceedings in absentia while living in Washington.

The two met after Knox, who was engaged to musician Colin Sutherland at the time, reviewed Robinson's book War of the Encyclopeadists on her blog.
