(Newser) – Yesterday she was a " Satanic she-devil"; today, Amanda Knox is Jessica Rabbit—according to a defense lawyer. Giulia Bongiorno told the court today that Knox isn’t the "femme fatale" prosecutors are describing, but a loving and faithful woman—like the cartoon character from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, the AP reports. Bongiorno, lawyer for Raffaele Sollecito (Knox’s ex-boyfriend and co-defendant in Meredith Kercher’s murder), explained that Knox—like Rabbit—"is not bad, she’s just drawn that way."
