Murder Meredith Kercher, Rudy Guede asks for sentence reduction: with the judge’s yes he could be definitively free

Rudy Guede, unique condemned a 16 years of imprisonment forhomocide from Meredith Kercher, which took place in 2007, asked one 45-day sentence reduction through his attorney, the lawyer Fabrizio Ballarini. The sentence will expire on January 4, 2022. The magistrate has already accepted one reduction of 100 days over the years, also in consideration of the three-year degree with 110 cum laude in Historical Sciences of the Territory and International Cooperation taken in prison. If the request were to be accepted by the court, the Ivorian would be immediately and definitively free, because the term of the sentence would be November 20 and therefore already passed, as Ballarini confirms at theAnsa.

The murder of Meredith Kercher, 22 year old English student in Italy for theErasmus, took place on the evening of November 1st 2007. Although he always admitted his presence in home of via della Pergola a Perugia, Guede has always denied having killed Kercher. Against him were theimprint of a hand bloody and others traces from Dna found at the crime scene. Guede had claimed he had tried to to help the girl who was stabbed while he was in bath. The October 20, 2007 he was then arrested in Mainz, in Germany, where he had fled. He was sentenced with an abbreviated rite by the gup for contest in murder. The trials have never clarified “in competition” with whom. As known, the other defendants – Amanda Knox e Raffaele Sollecito – They were definitively acquitted in 2015.

In semi-liberty from September of 2019, Guede – 35 years old on December 26 – operated as volunteer at the Caritas of Viterbo and collaborates with a center for criminological studies. For some time he had not returned to sleep in his cell, taking advantage of a special permit linked to the rules to prevent Covid contagion within the prison institutions. Guede still lives in a apartment that has been made available to him and must respect some rules, how not to go out in the evening after 9pm.
