The four year ordeal of jailed American exchange student ended with tears of joy on October 3, 2011, when an Italian appeals court threw out her murder conviction – and ordered her freed.

Knox collapsed into the arms of a cheering relative before she was rushed out of the courtroom by court officers while prosecutors sat in stunned silence near the grim-faced relatives of murder victim Meredith Kercher, 21 of England.

“We’re thankful that Amanda’s nightmare is over,” Knox’s sister, Deanna Knox, said. “She has suffered for four years for a crime that she did not commit.”

The gorgeous Knox, labeled a sex-obsessed ‘femme fatale’ by the prosecution, and nicknamed Foxy Knoxy by members of the press, has endured four years of public scrutiny.
