Dalia Dippolito sentenced to 20 years

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Dalia Dippolito has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.  According to the Judge, she will receive credit for time served since her arrest. 

Dippolito is convicted of solicitation to commit first-degree murder after hiring a hit man to kill her husband.

At her trial last month, a jury found Dalia Dippolito guilty of hiring a hit man to kill her husband, Michael in August 2009.

That hit man was actually an undercover police officer.

Police set up a fake crime scene at Dippolito's home, telling her that her husband was dead when he actually wasn't.

Police say the motive was ownership of the couple's Boynton Beach home and Michael's money.

The reality TV show cops filmed parts of this investigation leading to an internal investigation within the Boynton Beach Police Department.

No officers were disciplined as a result of that investigation.
