 Amanda Knox Latest: Kercher Family 'Would Not Accept a Cent' From Knox

Knox was acquitted by the Italian courts three weeks ago of the 2007 murder. 

Last week it was reported in various media outlets that after determining the Italian court's reasoning behind the acquittal, the Kercher family would be bringing a $12 million civil law suit against the 24-year-old.

A suit such as this would have been similar to the civil suit pressed by the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman after O.J. Simpson was acquitted of their 1994 murders.

However, it has now been revealed that Meredith Kercher's father, John Kercher, 68, has said he will "never accept a penny" from Amanda Knox.

Knox could make millions from book and film deals about her sensational arrest and release.

Kercher said, "I find it distasteful that Knox stands to make millions from what happened to Meredith. I don't think anyone should make money out of it — not us, not them.”

Television and radio broadcasters are also bidding for the rights to the first interview with Knox, who was cleared of Kercher’s murder along with her former boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito.

Books and films of the inside story of the case, and about Knox’s 4 years in an Italian prison, are eagerly awaited and will no doubt pay dividends of what some estimate could approach $10 million.

According to London's The Sun newspaper Kercher said, "How would any parent feel if their daughter's murder was to be turned into a movie for people's entertainment? We would not take a single cent from Amanda Knox."
