    Double jeopardy existed long before anyone (including the Vikings, probably) discovered North America.

    It's been altered for serious cases in the UK in recent years if there's compelling new evidence, Norman England didn't know about DNA evidence after all.
    Tribespeople from what is now Siberia discovered North America the back way, either via a land bridge across the Bering Straits or by following the end of the ice sheets. When the Vikings discovered it there were already people living there for thousands of years.

    I have no idea if she's guilty or not, the whole thing is a tangled mess and attempting to retry her at this point smacks of publicity seeking rather than any serious attempt at justice; how can they hope to find a jury that isn't already hopelessly contaminated?

    Someone breaking in, murdering and raping someone sounds like a far more likely story than them inviting a stranger round for sex games that went wrong. I've found this whole thing baffling.

    I don't know about elsewhere, but the double jeopardy doctrine was opened up in Scotland in 2011, to allow a new trial on the original offence based on new evidence. Previously, being acquitted was pretty much absolute.

    Really have no idea whether she is innocent or guilty.

    Her face always seemed in such a mono-expression. Could equally be cold hearted serial killer or innocent abroad in some sort of shocked emotional shut down.

    Double jeopardy: wasnt the guy who was recently put away for killing Stephen Lawrence tried for a second time on account of a change in this law?

    If she's innocent, surely she'll want to go Italy on her own accord to shed any doubt and clear her name?

    @woodnotes However if she is innocent and was found guilty the first time, I wouldn't touch Italy with the proverbial.

    Yeah if I had been banged up for 2 years on dodgy charges based on the phantasy’s of a mad corrupt prosecutor I would be champing at the bit to go back and give them another go at me.

    If she is innocent and I were her there is no way I would go back.

    I suppose it'll be up to Italy to present the US with substantial new evidence to warrant extradition. Otherwise, it won't be happening.

    @the_dudefather I would not. I actually always got a creepy vibe off of her.

    Indeed, fuck that. Whether I were innocent or guilty I doubt I'd ever leave the US again. Much like George W Bush.

    She looks the guilty type. But what do I know.

    So, they've been found guilty. The extradition process hasn't been started yet, so the whole thing is obviously going be stuck in limbo for the next few years.

    What an absolute farce. The judges/jury/lawyers involved in drawing out this circus should be thrown in prison alongside the murderers.

    Not normally, and the fact she was allowed to leave after the first trial wouldn't make them rush to hand her over.

    The victims family may kick up a fuss and get things moving along quicker though.

    There is apparently a lot of incriminating evidence against them so that may also convince them to ship her off.

    The latest decision can be appealed, so the US government will probably wait for the outcome of that before beginning extradition proceedings.

    I can't commit until a procedurally generated roguelike with 8bit sprites takes me on an infinite number of surreal journeys along the murder timeline soundtracked by Anamanaguchi.

    One thing that's absolutely certain: the Italian justice system doesn't come out of this looking good!

    Personally I think that whether you think they're innocent or guilty (I think innocent, personally) there MUST be reasonable doubt by now. I don't see how they can be convicted...

    I don't know the ins and outs of this case, but why was the original guilty verdict overturned?

    Because the Italians are inept at doing everything other than making suits and pasta.
