Ga. woman convicted of perjury to be sentenced

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — A woman whose former boss was convicted of fatally shooting her husband outside a suburban Atlanta preschool in 2010 is set to be sentenced after she was convicted of lying to authorities.

Jurors on Monday found Andrea Sneiderman guilty of nine counts, including making false statements and perjury.

Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was shot in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Her former boss Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing in March 2012, but found mentally ill.

The victim’s brother, Steve Sneiderman, began Tuesday’s sentencing hearing by calling the defendant a liar and a criminal.

Prosecutors accused Sneiderman of lying to police and lying under oath during Neuman’s trial.

Perjury carries a maximum sentence in Georgia of 10 years in prison. The other charges carry up to five years each.
