A recent article published in the Sun Sentinel mentions Attorney Greg Rosenfeld’s efforts to defend high-profile client Dalia Dippolito as part of her new legal team. The article reports on the most recent update to this case as Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Glenn Kelley has set a retrial date for December 1st of this year.
Dippolito was previously found guilty for the solicitation to commit murder and sentenced to 20 years in prison before she was successful in an appeal to overturn her case. She won the right to a new trial when it was found that multiple jurors were improperly exposed to information which violated her right to a fair trial.
Dippolito’s attorneys recently petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to review her case after Kelley, as well as an appellate court, rejected a motion to have the case thrown out altogether. Her defense argues that the Boynton Beach Police engaged in unlawful conduct which violated her constitutional rights. Her attorneys point to evidence that the police coerced Dippolito’s former lover into helping their investigation and that a key piece of police evidence supporting her innocence was destroyed.
While Florida’s highest court has yet to decide on the matter, Kelley himself admits that the court’s decision could change plans for a new trial. The next scheduled update to this case is a pre-trial hearing, planned to take place on November 30th. Until further notice, Dippolito remains on house arrest.
