YOUR THREE CENTS: Should the U.S. extradite Amanda Knox to Italy to face her punishment for a murder conviction?

Amanda Knox has been found guilty a second time in the death of her college roommate in 2007 in Italy.

An Italian court sentenced her to 28 years for the murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher in 2007.
               
Kercher was Knox's roommate.
Knox and her boyfriend were first found guilty in 2009.
               
But they were cleared in 2011 after a hearing revealed that police had tainted much of the critical evidence in the case.
               
Then, Italy's highest court dismissed the acquittal and ordered a new trial which ended with the second conviction on Thursday.
               
Knox can still appeal... but she says she'll only go back to Italy if she's dragged there.
               
She's now living in Seattle.
U.S. legal experts disagree on whether she can be extradited if she loses her appeals.
               
Extradition is not automatic despite an extradition treaty between Italy and the U.S.
               
The Justice Department would make the call, if and when Italy asks for Knox's return. Tell us what you think. You can go to Facebook under Connect 3 or just click here to go there now
