Amanda Knox Faces a New Court Battle

Italian court will decide whether 2009 conviction should stand.

“This really has hit me like a train,” Knox said after last year’s appeals court ruling. “I didn’t expect this to happen.”

Knox, 27, was initially convicted in 2009. That conviction was overturned on appeal in 2011, and the acquittal was thrown out in 2013. Her original conviction was upheld by the appeals court last year.

Sollecito, an Italian citizen, was stripped of his travel documents after the 2014 conviction. He is expected to be in court Wednesday. If the conviction is upheld, Sollecito will likely be arrested and taken to prison. He faces a 25-year sentence.

Knox has tried to move past the legal challenges. She’s newly engaged, working in a bookstore and writing theater reviews for the West Seattle Herald.

But she’s also in therapy, ABC News has learned, still trying to cope with a terrifying past and uncertain future.

Through it all, Knox has maintained that she is innocent.

The biggest unknown is whether Knox will be extradited and returned to an Italian jail if the conviction is upheld.

“I will never go willingly back to the place where I -- I’m going to fight this to the very end,” she told ABC News in 2014.
