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.'"
