Andrea Sneiderman of Decatur, Georgia was convicted on nine of 13 counts, which include charges of perjury and hindering prosecution. She was sentenced to five years in prison and will receive credit for the one year she has already served.
Prosecutors allege that Sneiderman lied to police in an attempt to hide her affair with Hemy Neuman while police were investigating her husband’s murder.
Neuman shot and killed Andrea’s husband, Rusty Sneiderman, in front of a daycare center in 2010. A jury convicted him in 2012, and sentenced him to life in prison.
Andrea continues to deny that the two had an affair. She plans to appeal her convictions.
Andrea’s legal troubles are far from over. Rusty’s family is suing her for wrongful death.
“Following this decision, our family has determined that we have no choice but to continue to litigate the pending civil lawsuits against the defendant to the fullest extent possible under the law,” Rusty Snedierman’s family said in a statement released by their attorney, Esther Panitch, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
