Last month, Italy's highest criminal court overturned Knox's acquittal in the 2007 slaying of British student Meredith Kercher and ordered a new trial. Italian law cannot compel Knox to return for the new legal proceeding. Knox tells Sawyer the high court's decision was "incredibly painful" and she felt as if she had to crawl through yet another field of barbed wire after reaching what she thought was the end. Her memoir, "Waiting to Be Heard," was released Tuesday.
