Shakopee, MN (WDAY TV) -- A rural Barnesville woman sentenced to more than 5 year in prison for setting fires to her farmstead is appealing her conviction.

Tara Andvik has a new Bloomington based attorney. He says he anticipates raising several issues for appeal including violations of Andvik's miranda rights, the location of the trial and an ineffective attorney.

Andvik was represented by longtime defense attorney Steven Mottinger at trial. A jury found Andvik guilty of three counts of first-degree arson on May 15.

She is serving her sentence in Shakopee.
