Nancy Grace doesn’t see an innocent young woman in Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the 2007 murder of her roommate Meredith Kercher – and then set free Monday after a successful appeal.

“I think that it was a miscarriage of justice,” Grace told PEOPLE Monday night after performing a waltz on Dancing with the Stars. “I only hope that Ms. Knox makes something of her life now because she’s certainly been given a second chance.”

She added, “Very few people are given the chance that she has been given today.”
