    From what I am hearing reported it is not likely that she would ever be extradited. She has already been tried and acquitted.

    The problem with the Italian courts is that they don't have double jeopardy. So it'll be interesting to see if Italy requests extradition and whether the US complies.

    Personally, I wouldn't go. I've already been acquitted once and if my government was willing to deny the extradition request I just wouldn't go back to that country.

    This whole situation is really sad, and let's not think this young lady is an angel. Ultimately, though, if the US accepted the extradition request I would comply according to Romans 13 and my NT ethics. :)
