Andrea Sneiderman may be out of prison but her legal saga is far from over.
The Dunwoody widow, once implicated in the November 2010 murder of her husband, Rusty, was convicted last August of perjury and hindering the apprehension of a killer. Sneiderman’s former boss, Hemy Neuman, was convicted in the Nov. 2010 murder of Rusty Sneiderman outside a Dunwoody day care facility and is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
“We are delighted that she’s home and we are vigorously pursuing her appeal,” said Andrea Sneiderman’s attorney, Brian Steel.
The appeal is based on what the defense claims was the allowance of inadmissible evidence from Neuman’s former Realtor during the perjury trial. Melanie White testified that Neuman shared details of an intimate encounter with Sneiderman during a getaway to London.
Sneiderman, 38, has insisted she was never romantically involved with Neuman, who is seeking a new trial of his own on the grounds that he was convicted on perjured testimony.
“One of my greatest regrets will be allowing this predator into my life and not being stronger for dispelling his advances sooner, ” Sneiderman said at her sentencing hearing last August.
The mother of two will remain under parole supervision until the completion of her sentence in Aug. 2017. Because she was sentenced under the First Offender Act, her nine felony convictions will be erased if she does not commit another offense before her sentence ends.
