BOYNTON BEACH, FL -- Dalia Dippolito is accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband. Michael Dippolito's first wife released the following statement:
"I have known Mike for over 10 years and he is a good guy. We had a good marriage and he always made me happy and feel deserved. Our divorce was a result of differences that could not be worked out. He was a great husband and is a great man. We had our normal marital issues, but nothing out of the norm.
I have NO comment on my ex-Husband’s criminal history except to say that in my opinion he has turned his life around for the positive and I wish him good luck.
I am sorry to see what he is going through. It is unfortunate that someone would do this to another human being".
- Maria Dippolito
Michael Dippolito’s past criminal history includes grand theft, organized fraud of $50,000 and telemarketing without a license. He is on probation until 2032.
