Despite the evidence and her very limited testimony during trial, Amanda's side of her case hasn't really been aired until now. Most damning in the past was her spurious confession, obtained under extraordinary pressure by Italian interrogators, and her resultant scapegoating of an innocent bartender (no sleep, no food, 4-5 days of what amounts to a form of torture). But the careful rehearsal of the DNA evidence, which exculpated her and Raffaele, and the background context she establishes (poor Italian, given her six weeks in Perugia before the murder of her roommate), makes her side convincing. Parents, don't send your college students to Italy!
