During the sentencing phase, Hemy Neuman read the following statement to the court:
I prepared this statement several weeks ago... to express my sense of loss for the death of Rusty Sneiderman. I do not think that anyone feels that anybody won here -- everybody lost. I hadn't written this down but a lot of what Mr. Sneiderman said about Rusty is true. ...it is... He was a good man with so much ahead of him and I'm so, so, so sorry for their loss.
This is a terrible tragedy, first of all, for Sophia and Ian, the Sneidermans -- Rusty's dad, his mom, brother, Andrea should not have had to bury him. They should not have had to undergo the pain, the anguish, the sorrow, the loss, and as Mr. Sneiderman just stated, it goes on and it will go on forever. The Greenbergs suffered the loss of a beloved son-in-law. Family friends, for Rusty was dear, deservedly so miss him and hurt for it.
It is also a tragedy for three other children, for Lee,Tom and Addie. And countless family and friends who saw a person they loved, admired, and respected -- who saw him arrested and shamed, charged and now convicted.
I am so, so, so sorry. I can't say it enough. I can't say enough to all of you -- to precious children, all five of them -- to the Sneidermans, to the Greenbergs, my parents, the family friends and community at large -- I am sorry from the deepest part of me, your Honor. That's all I have.
