Amanda Knox sought comfort from visiting family members today on her first day in prison since being convicted of murdering her British roommate. "Amanda, like the rest of us, is extremely disappointed, upset about the decision," said her mother, Edda Mellas. "We told her that she's gonna get out of here. It's gonna take a little longer."
Knox "couldn't sleep all night," said attorney Luciano Ghirga. "She's worried for her parents, too, but she is keeping the faith needed for the next steps." Knox was sentenced to 26 years in an Italian prison, and her appeal cannot begin for at least 90 days. She has been jailed since the November 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher.
