    Amanda Knox’s image rehab tour continues. Knox told Diane Sawyer that she would like people to “reconsider” her as a person after her highly watched Italian murder trial. In a preview of an interview that will air Tuesday, Knox says she was in the courtroom when people were calling her “devil,” and everything that she had ever done in her life had been used against her in the Italian court. “For all intents and purposes, I was a murderer—whether I was or not,” Knox says. Knox, now 25, was found guilty of murdering her roommate, Meredith Kercher, in 2009, and spent four years in an Italian prison before the conviction was overthrown. “What happened to me was surreal, but it could have happened to anyone,” she says. Knox says she’d “like the truth to come out.” Knox’s acquittal has since been overturned, meaning she must face a retrial in Italy—if she ever returns.
