In a new interview, Amanda Knox says she is being treated well in prison. Scared and lonely, she shares the cell with a 53 year old American women serving a 4 year drug sentence.
Amanda gets to wear her own clothes, her prison cell has a bathroom and shower, she gets weekly hair appointments with a hair stylist, gets to watch TV, and play ping pong.
“I am scared because I don’t know what is going on,” the 22-year-old told reporters during a 10-minute visit inside the Capanne prison on the outskirts of Perugia, the Associated Press reports.
She is not allowed access to e-mail but can correspond with her college professors by writing letters.
“We are trying to work out how I can talk to them,” she said. “I miss stimulating conversations.”
In her darkest moments, Knox says she has found support from an unexpected source – the unusually comforting prison guards.
Well at least they are treating her well. Poor girl, they expect her appeal to take several years before it’s heard. Thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.
