Sneiderman set to appear in court for bond hearing

DECATUR — A suburban Atlanta woman convicted of lying under oath and lying to police investigating the killing of her husband is set to have a bond hearing.

Andrea Sneiderman is to appear Thursday before DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams.

Sneiderman was convicted in August on 9 of 13 counts against her, including perjury and making false statements. Adams sentenced her to serve five years in jail with credit for about a year of house arrest.  

An attorney for Sneiderman is seeking a new trial and asked for bond while the appeal is pending.

Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was gunned down in November 2010. Andrea Sneiderman’s boss, Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing but found to be mentally ill.   

Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to police and to a jury.
