Dalia Dippolito -- caught on camera two years ago promising to pay a hit man to kill her husband -- was sentenced to 20 years in prison today by Circuit Judge Jeffrey Colbath.

UPDATE: Click here for details on Dippolito's sentencing.

There wasn't much ambiguity in Dippolito's murder-for-hire charge. The trial lasted three weeks, and it took only three hours for a jury to convict her in May.

The "entertainment" value of Dippolito's case, however, was priceless -- including four failed attempts to kill her husband, Michael, and for her attorney's attempting for a reality-TV defense.

First she tried to kill Michael by dropping some antifreeze into his tea.

Then she moved to hit men: Three times, she was unsuccessful in finding someone to kill her husband.

The problem with the last hit man she tried to hire was that he was actually an undercover cop -- and the videotape of their exchanges showed to the jury easily damned her.

It included Dippolito's saying she was "5,000 percent sure" she wanted her husband dead, then did some stellar sobbing after the cop told her Michael was dead.

The circus presented as a defense during her trial was just as TV-worthy.

Her defense was composed of three witnesses: her mother, a reality-TV expert, and a digital forensics expert.

Could Dippolito actually have tried to get her husband killed to appear on television? It's entirely possible, but the part about trying to have her husband killed is still a problem.

Now her only chance of being on reality TV would be MSNBC's Lockup.

Save the US ...I can relate to what you are saying as I have actually in some respect  solved the murder of Tom Sikes killed by his wife Sharon Sikes and her son Neal Chambers Aug 99 ...The only reason they are not in prison is because of PBA president Jeff Marano  (ex hollywood cop) who had this homicide covered up. And  still thanks to his buddy Louis Granteed (assistant chief of HPD) wont admit Neal Chambers is a suspect even though he was seen by a credible witness,forcing Tom Sikes (who was trying to escape  from the hitman inside his warehouse)  back into the building where he was shot and killed...I had worked for this evil lady Sharon Sikes for a few years and had no idea how greedy and evil she was till that day she had Tom killed through her son and his hired hitman.There is apparently 50 - 100 million involved in this murder and  I know Neal Chambers received approx 4 million for his part in the murder..Even though I was threatened intimidated and stalked  by Jeff Marano I am still pursuing  justice for Thomas Dozier Sikes

What is truly sad, is all of the women out there, who have gotten away with murdering their husbands for money.  "Snapped" on The Oxygen Network is finally showcasing a few of them that were caught... and still they mollify what they did, by saying that the women "snapped."

The women didn't "snap", they were evil vengeful greedy women who were caught.  I've noticed that whenever a woman is caught red-handed, she still has an excuse.  ALWAYS has and excuse. 

Did you see how Dalia cried and acted in distress when the police told her that her husband was "dead"?  Most women can do this at the drop of a hat, which is why so many of them have gotten rich by murdering their husbands, and why the legal system sucks when it comes to sentencing women.

Too often, women are given a slap on the wrist.  Even women will tell you that women are WAY MORE EVIL than men.

Ask any junior high girl, who is more evil--the girls or the boys in her class?

I know many women who still hold a grudge against some girl from high school or junior high... that's how mean they were and it also shows how women will hold a grudge for life.

I never realized until the last few years, but women truly are more evil than men.  Especially when it comes to money.

@Save The U.S.  Wow! What Dalia Dippolito did was extremely cold blooded but so are your comments!  You don't just want punishment, you want extreme suffering and murder!

The unfortunate part of this circus lies in its educational value. The next hopeful tyrying to eradicate a significant other from his/her llife will profit from Dallia's mistakes. He/she will undooubtedly be more succesful. An unfortunarte byproduct of this comedy.

I can't believe that anyone would find her attractive, with those anus lips.

Dalia is a typical diva of her age group.  They all want to live for free and have everything given to them.  They are lazy and do not want to work for anything. They'd rather marry someone that they hate, and kill them for their money.  I wish she would have gotten the death penalty and I hope she is severely beaten in prison, if not killed.

An eye-4-an-eye.  She tried to put him in jail and when that wouldn't work, she wanted him dead.  I'd like to see her dead.  She is one of the most evil "people" that I have ever heard about...and there are plenty more women out there, just like her.  All they want is a free ride and money to shop.

I love everyone, especially honest and caring women.

But, so many of them (Bad Girls Club, Snapped, Real Housewives of _____, Basketball Wives, etc.) has pulled the curtain back on how a majority of women really are, at heart.

On top of that, you have prostitutes like Tiger Woods' wife, who believes that she DESERVES $100 million dollars--and a TON of women believe this too.

Money money money.  Too many women want a FREE RIDE and to spend all their time shopping for shoes.

And when they get a divorce, they all believe they deserve half of what THE MAN worked for.
