Amanda Knox Evidence & False Confessions with James Curtis

vor 5 Jahren

Controversy over Amanda Knox continues, as we look at evidence tampering, crime scene contamination, recordings of her confession, and if text messages she sent were incriminating. We debate the validity of the investigation in Italy, her innocence, and the case for reasonable doubt in this Crime Time with legal analyst James Curtis, and guest hosted by Jim Clemente.

A former prosecutor, James Curtis went on to become the host of award-winning television programming and to do critically acclaimed work during more than 10 years in broadcasting. After a quick and promising rise from his first radio talk show at UC Riverside's KUCR to hosting the nationally syndicated court show CURTIS Court, he then moved to news anchor for Court TV and then on to host Michael Jackson criminal trial coverage for E! Entertainment.

Jim Clemente is a retired FBI agent and current advisor, writer and producer for the TV series "Criminal Minds." A graduate of Fordham University School of Law, Jim was the head of the Child Sex Crimes Prosecution Team in Bronx County for the New York City Law Department. As a result of undercover work that led to the imprisonment of a child sex offender, Clemente was recruited into the FBI. From 1998 until October 2009 he was a Supervisory Special Agent in the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit in Quantico, Virginia. He is an expert in the fields of Sex Crimes Investigations, Sex Offender Behavior, Child Sexual Victimization, and Child Pornography. Clemente has investigated and consulted on thousands of cases involving the violent and sexual crimes, sexual victimization of children, and he has interviewed hundreds of victims and offenders. He has also testified as an expert witness and lectured on these topics across the country and around the world.
