Court hearing for Dalia Dippolito concerning gag order

Posted at 7:49 AM, Apr 05, 2017

Lawyers for Dalia Dippolito are expected to appear in court for a hearing Wednesday in West Palm Beach.

Her defense team claims prosecutors are violating the same gag order they recently requested from a judge.

At issue is a video on the Boynton Beach police department's YouTube page showing Dippolito's arrest.

That video also involves a description of the case, which Dippolito's attorneys say is not allowed under the new gag order.

Dippolito’s case is scheduled to go to a third trial beginning June 2. Boynton Beach police accused Dippolito of hiring a hit man to kill her then husband in 2009.

Wednesday's hearing is scheduled for 1 p.m.
