Knox attorney Ted Simon 'hopeful' Knox's not guilty verdict will remain after hearing

FROM CNN WIRES:

Rome (CNN) - Her story made headlines all over the world: An American college student studying abroad in Italy - charged with killing another student

This morning on "Starting Point," Knox attorney Ted Simon explains the hearing procedure, how the Knox family is coping and what the next steps are in Amanda's case.

Amanda Knox's ex-boyfriend Sollecito on his tell-all memoir 'Honor Bound,' says he hopes people 'understand the truth'

It was one of the most sensational murder cases in the past decade. American student Amanda Knox and her Italian boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, were charged with the brutal murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher. An Italian court found them guilty and sentenced them both to prison. But last year, those convictions were overturned.

Now, Raffaele has written a new memoir. It's called "Honor Bound." Soledad had the chance to sit down with Raffaele about the case.

Amanda Knox's family friend discusses Knox's ex-boyfriend's new memoir

Amanda Knox’s boyfriend, who was convicted and acquitted of murder alongside her, maintains the pair’s innocence in a book released on Tuesday.

Anne Bremner, a criminal defense attorney who served as the spokeswoman for “Friends of Amanda,” joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss Raffaele Sollectio’s new memoir, “Honor Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox.”

“Through all of it, I think he was very loyal and I think he’s very honorable. I think his story is one to be told and people are really interested in reading it,” Bremner says of Sollecito, whose memoir recounts the murder charges held against Knox and him and the process to acquittal that freed the couple last October.

"His family wanted him to distance himself from Amanda Knox," Bremner adds. "But, the fact is, he stuck with her and the name of the book is, 'Honor Bound.'"
