If Amanda Knox Is Innocent, Then Is Rudy Guede Innocent Too?

Since Amanda Knox was exonerated in the murder of Meredith Kercher, many questions remain. Many who believe that the Seattle woman is guilty are eagerly awaiting the official reason for the verdict to be published by the Italian judges who reached the decision. Meanwhile, others are asking about Rudy Guede’s role in the case now that two people who were once considered accomplices have been “cleared.”

Rudy Guede himself is among those who have questions. In fact, he wants answers in the form of his own idea of justice. The Mirror reports that Rudy Guede wants a retrial to seek exoneration just like his former co-defendants.

Rudy Guede apparently believes that an injustice has been committed with the acquittal of Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito. After all, they were all three convicted together, and the longstanding belief has been that three people participated in the slaying of Meredith Kercher, not just one person. Guede himself acknowledged that in some of his latest statements.

“Look at me, I committed the impossible crime. How can I be the accomplice in a murder without any accomplices?”

Guede and his attorneys are also awaiting the judge’s reason for acquitting Sollecito and Knox, but that wait can take as long as 90 days. In the meantime, the debate regarding whether or not he deserves an acquittal can be found on social media. The #RudyGuede and #AmandaKnox hashtags are being used right now to discuss the possibility of his acquittal, and the repercussions that can result from it.

Do you think Rudy Guede deserves a retrial? The possibility of a retrial could end in him being free sooner than the eight years that are left in his sentence. To some people, that could mean absolutely no justice has been served in Meredith’s murder. On the other hand, some people believe that he may spill the beans so-to-speak and share the dirty details about what happened the night Meredith was killed.
