  • Dalia Dippolito found guilty (again) of hiring hitman to kill her husband

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A former escort was convicted Friday of trying to hire a hit man to kill her newlywed husband to get control of his money and their town house in a case that was featured on the television show "Cops."

    Dalia Dippolito teared up as she turned to look at her sobbing mother when the jury announced its verdict after deliberating for only an hour and a half. She faces up to 20 years in prison when sentenced July 21. Judge Glenn Kelley ordered her held without bail.

    Dippolito, 34 and the mother of an infant son, later began sobbing as she sat handcuffed in a corner of the courtroom as bailiffs ordered spectators out. Paramedics were called to the courthouse after she had trouble breathing, but she was later taken to jail. She had been on house arrest for several years.

    Her ex-husband, convicted conman Michael Dippolito, issued a statement saying he was "5,000 percent happy" with the verdict. He was referring to a secretly videotaped statement Dalia Dippolito made to an undercover detective posing as a hit man where she said she was "5,000 percent sure" she wanted him murdered.

    They were only married for 6 months and in that time she stole $100,000 from him, was cheating on him, and tried to get him arrested by planting drugs in his car. She's a witch and finally going to jail.

    But for god sakes.....the guy married an escort he hired. Of course she only ever wanted his money!
