RAPID CITY (AP) - A Rapid City woman convicted of abusing horses is appealing her conviction.

Forty-four-year-old Terri Harwood was sentenced to a year in jail and eight years of probation after a jury last fall convicted her and her husband, Don Harwood, on nine counts of inhumane treatment of animals.

Terri Harwood is serving her sentence on electronic monitoring. The Rapid City Journal reports that her attorney, Connor Duffy, is challenging a January 2013 search of a barn that resulted in the seizure of 69 horses.

Don Harwood was sentenced to five years in jail but remains a fugitive.
