Amanda Knox:‘They Isolate You, They Scare You, And They Tell You This Is The Only Way Out For You’
In 2015, after a prolonged legal battle, The Italian Supreme Court (Corte Suprema di Cassazione) exonerated former foreign exchange student Amanda Knox of Seattle Washington, in the 2007 death of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher. Amanda had previously spent nearly four years in an Italian prison.
After her arrest, Amanda claims she was interrogated a total of 53 hours over five days. She claims she was also hit in the head and screamed at by investigators.

“People think that hearing the guilty verdict was the worst experience of my life? No. My interrogation was the scariest, worst experience of my life because I was made to feel like a crazy person.”
In the video above, Amanda, Dr. Phil and Jason Flom, who hosts the podcast Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom, compare Amanda’s experience with Italian police to what attorneys with the Innocence Project claim happened to 16-year-old Brendan Dassey in a Wisconsin interrogation room in 2005.
