Andrea Sneiderman Sentence

Andrea Sneiderman Sentence, On Tuesday, Judge Gregory A. Adams sentenced Andrea Sneiderman to 5 years in prison, minus the one year she has already served.

Sneiderman will serve a concurrent sentence after she was found guilty on 9 of 13 charges including hindering the apprehension of a criminal, concealment of material facts, perjury and false statement.

A jury found her guilty Monday on several counts of lying to police – and in court – after the murder of her husband.

The court heard from supporters of Andrea Sneiderman as well as Rusty Sneiderman’s brother, who called her a liar and wanted the harshest punishment for her.

Andrea Sneiderman took the stand to beg the court for leniency.

The jury found Sneiderman not guilty on four counts that related to claims that she knew her husband Rusty had been shot before anyone at the scene told her.

However, the guilty counts signify the jury found Sneiderman lied to cover up an affair she was having with her boss, Hemy Neuman, the man who is serving a life sentence for the murder.

Sneiderman, a 37-year-old mother of two, denied any involvement in the 2010 murder of her husband outside a Dunwoody daycare center. In 2012, authorities arrested her and charged her with murder, along with several other counts. But days before the trial, the judge dismissed the murder charge after District Attorney Robert James said he lacked the evidence for a murder conviction.
