While Amanda Knox remains in the United States following her second conviction for the murder of Meredith Kercher, her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito was in Italy during the trial and his conviction, but authorities have said that he was caught at the border of the country, just hours after the guilty verdict was handed down.

Sentenced to 25 years in prison on Thursday, Italian police said Sollecito was stopped in the northern Italian town of Udine, which is near the borders of Austria and Slovenia, CNN reported.

Knox’s former lover has been prohibited from leaving Italy as the legal process continues.

Sollecito was spotted in a hotel in the small town of Venzone and police brought him to the station where his passport was confiscated and a stamp was put in his Italian identification papers that states he cannot leave the country.

His attorney said he was in the town because his current girlfriend lives there, according to the Associated Press.

Giovanni Belmonte, cabinet chief of the Udine police, said that Sollecito was “calm and came willingly to the station, with his girlfriend driving behind.”

As exclusively reported, last year a desperate Sollecito proposed to an American women, Kelsey Kay,  asking her to marry him in the hopes that he would get a green card and avoid facing justice in his impending retrial. She refused his offer and he was found guilty by a second jury in his home country.

Sollecito also proposed to Knox, who also refused his advances, and has said she will remain in the United States and not return to Italy following her conviction.

Knox and Sollecito have maintained their innocence and they can appeal their convictions to the Italian Supreme Court.
