What will Amanda Knox verdict be?

Las Vegas, December 12: In exactly one month the verdict will be decided in the retrial of Amanda Knox. Will she be found guilty or innocent in the murder of her former flatmate Meredith Kercher? This case has inspired passionate debate for several years -- nearly a decade -- and now it is coming to a final head (or so it seems). This poll asks the question: What do you think the verdict will be? The poll has been live for a handful of days and already nearly 200 people have given their answers. It's fortunate for Amanda that these internet polls do not factor into trial verdicts, because more than half of the people polled believe that she was involved in the slaying of her former roommate.

This blog post notes that even with the reading of a verdict, this case may be far from over. That's because a guilty verdict will open the can of worms associated with actually extraditing the accused murderess. Knox and her fan club have adamantly shown that she will not be leaving the U.S., unless she is pretty much forced to go -- and her rabid defenders insist that the U.S. would simply never extradite this woman because "she's innocent," or "she's American." Regardless of the passionate opinions in this case, the U.S. entered an extradition treaty with Italy in the 1980s, and this is a process that would likely be honored due to the relationship between the two countries. At any rate, it's not even known if extradition will be put on the table if Amanda Knox is found guilty -- though a prosecutor has requested that she be convicted and sentenced to 30 years in prison. What do you think the verdict will be in this high profile trial? It's only a month away, so there is no doubt that Amanda and her loved ones are anxious as the countdown to "judgement day" continues.
