Amer­i­can expat Aman­da Knox is back in an Ital­ian court­room, this time seek­ing to over­turn a slan­der con­vic­tion that has shad­owed her for almost 20 years. Knox, pre­vi­ous­ly exon­er­at­ed for the 2007 mur­der of her room­mate Mered­ith Kercher, now fights to clear her name “once and for all.”

The sen­sa­tion­al­ized mur­der case cap­ti­vat­ed glob­al media, with Knox and her then-boyfriend Raf­faele Sol­lecito ini­tial­ly con­vict­ed. While their con­vic­tions were lat­er quashed, Knox faced fur­ther legal bat­tles, includ­ing a slan­der charge for false­ly accus­ing Diya “Patrick” Lumum­ba of the crime.

Now a 36-year-old moth­er, Knox entered the court­room along­side her hus­band Christo­pher Robin­son, deter­mined to final­ly end this ordeal. In a pre­pared state­ment, she apol­o­gized for wrong­ly accus­ing Lumum­ba under police pres­sure, acknowl­edg­ing her lack of knowl­edge about the true killer.

The high-pro­file case con­tin­ues to draw media scruti­ny, with pho­tog­ra­phers sur­round­ing Knox upon arrival. This lat­est tri­al fol­lows Italy’s high­est court order­ing a review of the slan­der con­vic­tion due to poten­tial human rights vio­la­tions dur­ing Knox’s ini­tial questioning.

With much at stake, Knox seeks to reclaim her rep­u­ta­tion and move for­ward. Sup­port­ed by her legal team, she hopes this long-run­ning saga will final­ly con­clude, allow­ing her to leave the painful past behind and focus on the future.
