Dalia Dippolito, who was found guilty of trying to hire a hitman to kill her husband, is appealing her conviction.
That's according to the Sun-Sentinel.
The 30-year-old was sentenced to 20 years in prison after she tried to hire a hitman to kill her husband during a sting operation in 2009.
Dippolito wants an appellate court to throw out her conviction because she alleges judicial misconduct in a previous trial.
She also claims there was a conflict of interest by her trial attorney, and that he didn't represent her fairly.
Dippolito has been on house arrest since 2011 after posting bond.
