Dalia Dippolito looks back at her mother as her attorney Michael Salnick rests his side of the case during her trial at the Palm Beach County Courthouse on Thursday, May 12, 2011.
The notorious South Florida woman found guilty of hiring a hitman to kill her husband was grated $500,000 bond while she attempts to appeal her conviction, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Dalia Dippolito, 28, was convicted by a jury in May of solicitation to commit first-degree murder, and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
The Boynton Beach newlywed wife was accused of reaching out to a hit man -- who turned out to be an undercover cop -- to kill her husband Michael in an effort to gain control of the couple's home in 2009.
Her attorney Michael Salnick asked Judge Jeffrey Colbath for bond not exceeding $150,000, according to the paper, offering to turnover Dippolito's and her mother's passports.
The Sun-Sentinel reports that Assistant State Attorney Laura Burkhart Laurie requested bond be denied or granted at $350,000.
Though he expressed skepticism that her appeal would be successful, reports the paper, the judge granted Dippolito bond at $500,000.
Reached Tuesday night, Dippolito's attorney Michael Salnick was asked whether Dippolito would be able to post bail.
"That's being worked on," he told NBCMiami, "but I'm not going to talk about it."
Dippolito's case became a sensation after an elaborate sting caught on tape showed her tearing up after she was told by police her husband was dead.
Cops then told her he was still alive and she was arrested.
The couple had been married for just six months but the hitman hire was allegedly the third attempt the femme fatale had made on her husband. She had previously tried spiking his tea with antifreeze and tried to get two strangers to kill him, according to police.
Dippolito's attorneys claimed their client was the one manipulated by her husband. Dippolito thought the hit man hiring was part of a reality TV stunt and she did it only to help the couple gain some stardom, they said.
