Amanda Knox's Family Reacts to Guilty Verdict: "In That Country You Have to Save Face"

By

Amanda Knox and her boyfriend were found guilty on all counts yesterday by an Italian court. The ITN news service has released video of her family back in the US reacting to the announcement of the verdict. Knox's aunt, Janet Huff, said what a lot of us are thinking:


"In that country there's a lot of you have to save face, you have to do things so that you don't look bad and I think that if they admitted that she was not guilty then they would be admitting that they made a mistake in the first place, and that's not something they were willing to admit."

The New York Times today has the details of what many are concerned was an odd and unbalanced trial.
