WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA) released the following statement after an Italian appeals court found Amanda Knox guilty.  

“I am very concerned and disappointed by this verdict,” said Cantwell. “I am confident there will be an appeal to closely re-examine today’s decision. It is very troubling that Amanda and her family have had to endure this process for so many years. I will continue to closely monitor this case as it moves forward through the Italian legal system.”
