The DeKalb County judge who one week ago sentenced Andrea Sneiderman to five years in prison has granted her motion for a bond hearing.
Judge Gregory A. Adams scheduled the hearing for Nov. 6. Sneiderman, found guilty on nine of 13 felony counts, including perjury and hindering the apprehension of a criminal, was sentenced to five years on each count to run concurrently. The judge credited the Dunwoody widow for the three weeks she spent in jail after her Aug. 2, 2012, arrest and the following 11-plus months she was under house arrest until murder charges against her were dismissed July 29.
Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty, was gunned down by her then-boss, Hemy Neuman, in November 2010 in the parking lot of a Dunwoody day care. Jurors concluded she lied to investigators about her relationship with Neuman in an attempt to conceal an affair.
Defense attorney Brian Steel, hired by Andrea Sneiderman to work on her appeal, has filed a motion for a new trial, contending that the verdict against her was “contrary to the evidence and without evidence to support it.”
Sneiderman is serving her sentence at Arrendale State Prison in Alto, located in northeast Georgia.
Neuman’s lawyers say they also will file a motion for a new trial within 60 days, citing the perjured testimony by Sneiderman as grounds.
