DiPippo Found Not-Guilty of 1994 Murder

We are part of The Trust Project

Anthony DiPippo was found not-guilty of all charges in the 1994 rape and murder of 12-year-old Josette Wright during his third trial concerning the case Tuesday afternoon.

The 12-person jury returned the verdict after a day of deliberations that included hearing back testimony from three people that DiPippo allegedly made damaging statements to. DiPippo had been found guilty twice–in 1997 and 2012–but both convictions were overturned.

DiPippo was released from Putnam County Correctional Facility soon after the jury announced their decision.

For much of the trial family and friends of DiPippo had been in attendance. Wright’s mother, Susan, and other family and friends of the Wright family had also attended.

While DiPippo is now out, the man he was accused of committing the crime with, Andrew Krivak, remains in prison for the rape and murder. It’s unclear what the next steps are for him.
