Amanda Knox (2011)
Charged With: Sexual assault, murder and first-degree burglary
The Trial: On November 1, 2007, English student Meredith Kercher, who'd been studying in Perugia, Italy, was found dead in the apartment she shared with American student, Amanda Knox. In a controversial trial with the Italian law, Knox along with her boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, was accused of sexual assault, murder, and first degree burglary.
Outcome: While Knox only served four years of her 26-year sentence, her conviction was appealed in October 2011. An appeal of the couple's murder conviction was overturned in March, 2013, sending the case right back to the Italian Supreme Court, leaving the case up for reconsideration.
