OOPS: Daily Mail Accidentally Finds Amanda Knox Guilty

Ahead of the actual verdict delivery in the appeal trial of Amanda Knox, the Daily Mail Online published a story, reporting that Knox had been found guilty.

The story was complete with not-yet-said quotes and details from the future:

“Prosecutors were delighted with the verdict and said that ‘justice has been done’ although they said on a ‘human factor it was sad two young people would be spending years in jail’.

Following the verdict Knox and Sollecito were taken out of court escorted by prison guards and into a waiting van which took her back to her cell at Capanne jail near Perugia and him to Terni jail, 60 miles away.”


Except they were wrong. Knox was actually acquitted.
