Andrea Sneiderman Guilty and Sentenced to Five Years
I live in a wonderful community , a city just outside of Atlanta and the closest example I can think to the town from the movie Pleasantville. Living in Dunwoody feels more like a small town of 5,000 versus a sizeable suburb of 47,000. It is not unusual for generation after generation to raise their children here, so when one of our own was gun down in the parking of his son’s day care, to say our idyllic community was rocked was an understatement.
Rusty Sneiderman, father of two and husband to Andrea Sneiderman was killed in November 2o1o. After months of investigation, police arrested Hemy Neuman, Andrea Sneiderman’s boss. Mr. Neuman was clearly obsessed with his new employee, but Mrs. Sneiderman’s behavior during the investigation helped delay the inevitable arrest of Neuman by downplaying the significance of their relationship. In addition to minimizing the significance her relationship with Hemy Neuman, Mrs. Sneiderman’s testimony during the his trial resulted in where she finds herself today, being sentenced to five years for impeding the investigation to the murder of her husband.

Andrea Sneiderman was found GUILTY of 9 of the 13 charges related to the murder investigation of her husband Rusty Sneiderman. The charges include hindering the apprehension of a criminal, concealment of a material fact, three counts of giving false statements and four counts of perjury.
Jurors began deliberating in the Andrea Sneiderman case Thursday and returned the guilty verdict Monday.
The senetencing hearing was held today and included blistering statements from Rusty Sneiderman’s brother calling Sneiderman a liar and statements of support for Mrs. Sneiderman requesting leniency from the judge.

We did not hear from Andrea Sneiderman during the trial, but she did speak during the sentencing phase, pleading with the judge on behalf of her children to consider no incarceration. Prior to the trial, the Dekalb County DA offered Mrs. Sneiderman a plea deal that included one year of incarceration, but in what now seems like an unwise choice, Mrs. Sneiderman turned it down. After a brief break, Judge Gregory Adams who also presided over Neuman’s trial instead sentenced Mrs. Sneiderman to five years in prison.
This case is such a tragedy. Whether you believe Andrea Sneiderman is guilty of more than perjury or not, a wonderful man is dead, his children will never again have their father and may spend portions of their lives wondering how involved their mother really was. We can only hope and pray the children will be loved, protected and helped to deal with this tragedy through their family, faith and a really good therapist.by
