(AP) — A former Florida escort convicted of trying to hire a hit man to murder her newlywed husband could get up to 30 years in prison when she is sentenced Friday, perhaps ending a drawn-out case that drew notice for its startling videos and salacious characters.The case gained national attention when police video from the investigation went viral on the internet and it was featured on the TV shows "Cops" and "20/20."Lead defense attorney Brian Claypool said in court documents that Dippolito deserves, at most, a four-year sentence with credit for time served in jail and under house arrest."To give Dalia a hefty sentence and send her to jail for many years sends a message that it's OK for police departments to break the rules and break the law and use contaminated evidence to get a conviction," Claypool said.Using the same strategy that won the 2009 conviction Williams and co-prosecutor Laura Laurie told jurors during the latest trial not to be distracted by the police misconduct allegations and persuaded them that the evidence against Dippolito was overwhelming.

Two young Wisconsin daredevils were hit with charges of trespassing this week stemming from their climb in April to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge’s north tower — a stunt after which they posted video online of them dangling high over the roadway. Peter “Teatime” Kurer, 18, and Thomas Rector, believed to be in his 20s, were ordered to appear for arraignment in San Rafael on Sept. 12 on charges of trespassing and climbing a toll bridge, both misdemeanors, Marin County District Attorney Edward Berberian said Thursday.
