Amanda Knox feels ‘paralysed’! Yes, the 25-year-old American who was initially convicted and later acquitted on charges of her British roommate Meredith Kercher’s murder in Italy in 2007, revealed in an interview with People magazine that she often feels ‘paralysed with anxiety’ following death of her roommate and friend. Amanda Knox was sentenced to jail for 26-years of which she has already served four in Capanne prison and was later set free.

In her memoir that releases this April 30, Amanda has revealed that during her four years in prison, she had to fend off unwanted sexual advances thrice — twice from male prison employees and once by a female inmate, as reported by The New York Times.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Amanda Knox said that she was terribly shocked when Meredith was murdered and she was arrested (as accused). She said it was paralysing that she spent four years in the Italian prison and returned home in the year 2011. In March 2013, the highest Italian criminal court upended her acquittal and ordered a new trial.

However, it is known that the Italian law can’t force Amanda Knox for trial and that it is not sure if she would return to Italy, David Marriott, Amanda’s family spokesman said. Ever since she returned to the US, Amanda Knox has generally avoided the public spotlight and stays alone in hometown at Pacific Northwest. She still deals with tragic emotions.

Amanda Knox told the magazine which later made the excerpts of the interview available to the Associated Press, “Things creep up on me and all of a sudden I’m overwhelmed by the feeling of helplessness and that desperation and fear to even hope. Just that can make my heart race and makes me paralyzed until I can breathe it away.” In a report the ABC news revealed that Amanda Knox had written that she spent most of her time in prison in her cell, which was cold in the winter and hot in the summer, and was only allowed outside one hour a day.
