Amanda Knox spent nearly four years in an Italian prison for the murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher. On her podcast, The Truth About True Crime with Amanda Knox, she revealed the alleged sexual misconduct she experienced behind bars.
“There were moments when I was locked away that I feared sexual abuse,” Knox, 31, said on the podcast. “A guard once cornered me in the shower and tried to kiss me.”
She then explained how the vice warden would interrogate her “each night” during her first weeks locked up.
“He would probe me about my sex life and ask if I would f**k him,” she admitted. “I pretended not to understand his Italian.”
Fortunately for Knox, she was “never raped.”
“I made it through those years unscathed in that regard,” she said.
As Radar readers know, Knox was sentenced to 26 years in prison in 2009 for the murder of Kercher. The ruling was overturned in 2011.
Two years later, Knox was retried and her acquittal was overturned.
Then in 2015, the Italian Hugh Court reversed the decision.
In January 2018, the European Human Rights Court ordered Italy to pay Knox $20,000 in damages because of her mistreatment during the trial.
Knox has also moved on in her romantic life, as her longtime boyfriend Christopher Robinson proposed in November 2018.
