(SEATTLE) — In a stark image posted to her Twitter feed, Amanda Knox again proclaimed her innocence just days after an Italian judge found the American and her one-time boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito guilty of murdering British student Meredith Kercher in 2007.
Knox, 26, who has been in the United States since an Italian appeals court overturned her conviction in 2011, appears in the black and white photo, wearing a stern expression and holding a placard that reads: “SIAMO INNOCENTI” or “We Are Innocent.”

Last month, after 12 hours of deliberating, an Italian appeals court found Knox and Sollecito guilty of murder. Knox, 26, was sentenced to 28.5 years in prison. She was not in Italy for the most recent trial and Sollecito did not testify.
