True Crimes Podcasts has made public the English translation of the Italian court's refusal of compensation to Amanda Knox's ex Raffaele Sollecito.
According to the Italian publication Ansa, which was earlier picked up by True Crimes Podcasts judges refused Sollecito's request for 500,000 Euros (about $532,000 American dollars) for alleged "wrongful imprisonment."
Sollecito, 32, explained to British TV he sought the money for wrongfully being put in prison over the death of English college student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy.
But Italian judges noted that Sollecito has lied to police officers, which led to his arrest. According to the judges, Sollecito was responsible for being taken into custody and subsequently incarcerated.
Knox, a Seattle college girl studying in Perugia, and her then-beau Sollecito were accused and then--at first—were found guilty of murdering her roommate, British exchange student Kercher, in Italy.
The sensational crime happened in 2007 and Knox, now 29, and Sollecito spent almost four years in Italian prisons before they were both acquitted at a second level trial. In 2015, the Italian Supreme Court found both Knox and Sollecito innocent of the crime and they were released.

According to the True Crimes Podcasts' English translation of the refusal of compensation for Sollecito, there was good reason for him being under suspicion. The Italian court docs concluded that facts show Rudy Guede, the only person to serve time for Kercher's murder, couldn't have acted alone. Also, it stated, Amanda Knox's "presence in the dwelling site of the murder is clearly certain in the case, consistent with her admissions contained also in her hand-written account."
According to the docs, "It is hardly credible that he Sollecito was not with her."
Because Knox was in the Perugia house "at the time when young Meredith Kercher was killed constitutes a fact of absolute and indisputable certainty; it is evident that the statements made by Sollecito that she was with him all evening on 1 November 2007 are false and that one cannot believe his statements," the Italian court documents stated.
Knox wrote a book and last year, spoke about her innocence on a Netflix documentary.
