Former high profile Valley defense attorney says she's turning her life around

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A former high profile Valley defense attorney is telling the federal judge who sentenced her to prison that she's turning her life around.

Maridee Costanzo served eight years in federal prison for trying to hire a hit man to kill her husband.

Costanzo is now living at a home in Warren under federal supervision.

In a letter to U.S. District Judge David Dowd, Costanzo says she is working to obtain a Master's degree in substance abuse and chemical dependency counseling.

The letter says her 96 month sentence sobered her up.

Costanzo asserts nothing could make her consider risking her freedom and self respect.

Judge Dowd has asked for a probation report before ruling on Costanzo's request to be released from supervision.
