Lorena Bobbitt Gallo:
Lorena Bobbitt Gallo made headlines in the early '90s after severing her husband John's penis.
She went on trial and accused him of raping her the night of the alleged incident.
Jurors found her not guilty due to insanity and she was ordered to undergo a 45-day evaluation at a mental health facility.
Amanda Knox was on trial for the murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, while she was studying abroad in Italy.
Unlike Bobbitt, she was found guilty of faking a break-in, defamation, sexual violence, and murder in 2019, and sentenced to 26 years in prison.
Knox, who was labeled "Foxy Knoxy" by the press, was eventually acquitted and is now engaged.
