    Dippolito defense: Dalia thought she was acting for a reality show

    Dalia Dippolito never planned to have her husband killed, her attorney told a jury on Tuesday. Rather, she thought she was acting in a reality show orchestrated by her husband to achieve fame and publicity.

    In his opening statement in her murder-for-hire trial, defense attorney Michael Salnick said Michael Dippolito was a controlling husband who duped his wife into taking part in his hoax.

    "Michael Dippolito's hoax to orchestrate his own murder to achieve fame and fortune was a bad prank," Salnick said. "It was never anyone's intention to harm anyone."

    Well that is a novel defense. Kinda a new version of "it's all his fault."

    from the link

    Later they confronted her, brought her face-to-face with her husband and arrested her. Her reaction and arrest also were caught on video, which will be evidence in the trial.
    That will be real interesting.

    But boy wouldn't that be something if he actually did trick her into a plot that puts her behind bars? That would be a great TV episode for one of the various cop/CSI/ME shows.

    How exactly could her husband have done it? According to that article, it was her boyfriend that contacted the police about the murder plan, not her husband.

    WEST PALM BEACH A jury this afternoon convicted Dalia Dippolito of trying to hire a hitman to kill her newlywed husband in 2009.

    The jury of six took barely three hours to come back with a guilty verdict on the one count of solicitation to commit first-degree murder.

    The 29-year-old Dippolito barely showed any emotion as the verdict was read. Dippolito, who now faces up to 30 years in prison, was led quietly out of the packed courtroom in handcuffs by sheriff's deputies.

    Great news! This woman was certainly a few cents short of a nickel. She really thought she would get away with it. IMO.

    From the article:
    She likened Dippolito to poison candy: attractive outside, deadly inside.

    Of course you never know what a jury would do, but her story about her husband coming up with a reality tv plan (when it was her former boyfriend contacting police) made no sense.

    "In less than four months he and Dalia married in secret at a county courthouse, not bothering to alert their parents. In a year's time, authorities and divorce attorneys say, she persuaded him to give her his home and $240,000 of his life savings."

    "By then, they say, she also had tried, and failed three times, to kill him. She was finally busted in August when a former lover and confidant tipped off police."

    Who would have thought that it might not be a good idea to marry an escort?

    "Dalia Dippolito was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison for plotting to have her newlywed husband murdered.

    The 28-year-old Boynton Beach woman showed little emotion as Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath issued the sentence. The only time she broke down was earlier in the sentencing hearing, listening to her 16-year-old sister talk about her.



    Colbath noted that Dalia Dippolito had never apologized to her husband for plotting to take his life.

    "I think 'I'm sorry' would have gone a long way," the judge said. "It's astonishing, the cold-blooded denial you're willing to go to."


    Dalia Dippolito's plot, he said, was "something out of a novel." He told Dippolito she was motivated by greed, avarice and lust, and just wanted to be free of her husband. He called her "pure evil."

    This justice system is so one-sided on so many levels...

    She is being released on house arrest until her retrial so she is not really out out. Hopefully she will end up getting more time in her new trial!! Curious to see what she is going to use as her defense this time.

    Wow. Just heard about her release on Dateline. This is SO unfair. The article states the appeal could take two years! Two years that she's free to relax, hang by the pool and watch t.v..

    Note that we don't know if she is going to be successful and whether or not she will get a new trial. I am hopeful that the appeals court will say that Mohamed Shihadeh (the boyfriend who alerted police that she wanted her husband dead, and who helped set up the sting), not testifying live, was NOT harmful error. My understanding is that if the appeals court determines Dalia could have been convicted even if Mohamed testified live (rather than via video) and was subject to live cross exam, then she loses. I pray that she does lose.

    I don't understand why she's allowed out on appeal. This is such a clear-cut case. I hope this isn't going to be another Florida failure.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!
