Amanda Knox has signed on with a Washington D.C.-based attorney Robert Barnett to represent her in talks with publishers.
The Seattle student, who was charged in the 2007 death of her former roommate Meredith Kercher while studying abroad in Italy, was exonerated earlier this year and is expected to write a book about her experiences with the Italian justice system.
The Associated Press has more: “Knox family spokesman Dave Marriott says Robert Barnett will represent Knox in discussions with publishers and help her evaluate other opportunities. Barnett has represented the literary interests of U.S. Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, as well as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.”
Knox’s Italian ex-boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, who was also convicted and then released, recently signed on with Seattle-based literary agency Martin Literary Management.
