The story of her alleged murder-for-hire plot has been featured on multiple national television shows and has been the subject of intense public scrutiny. In this article, we will take a look at the details of the case, as well as the evidence presented against her and whether or not she may have been guilty of the crime.
Overview of Dalia Dippolito
Dalia Dippolito is a former real estate agent from Florida who was arrested in 2009 for allegedly attempting to hire a hitman to murder her husband, Michael Dippolito. The couple had only been married for six months at the time of the arrest.
At the time of her arrest, Dalia was 26 years old and had been living in Boynton Beach, Florida. She had a history of drug use and had been involved in several legal disputes with her husband prior to her arrest.
In 2011, Dalia was convicted of solicitation to commit first-degree murder and sentenced to 16 years in prison. However, the conviction was overturned in 2014 after a judge ruled that the police had violated her rights by recording her conversations with the supposed hitman without her knowledge.
Did She Kill Her Husband?
The evidence presented against Dalia was largely circumstantial. The prosecution argued that Dalia had attempted to hire a hitman to kill her husband, and that she had been caught on tape discussing the plot with the supposed hitman.
The defense argued that the police had entrapped Dalia and that she had not actually intended to carry out the murder. They also argued that the supposed hitman was actually an undercover police officer and that Dalia had been tricked into believing that he was a real hitman.
Ultimately, the jury found Dalia guilty of solicitation to commit first-degree murder. However, the conviction was overturned in 2014.
The case of Dalia Dippolito has been one of the most high-profile murder-for-hire cases in recent memory. Although she was initially convicted of solicitation to commit first-degree murder, the conviction was overturned in 2014 due to the police’s violation of her rights. To this day, the question of whether or not Dalia was guilty of the crime remains unanswered.
