I dunno if you follow the news, but in Italy a while back, an American woman, Amanda Knox, and her boyfriend were indicted for the murder of a woman at what has been called a stoned free-for-all sexual party. The Italian court found them and another fellow guilty and put them all away.
At her trial, Knox allowed as how the police beat her when they took her into custody. The police apparently took umbrage at this, and so Knox was recently indicted on charges of slander.
Got to love it.
I wonder: Is it technically possible that if you are convicted of a crime that you swore under oath you didn't do, you could then be tried for perjury?
