Andrea Sneiderman will learn today how long she’ll spend behind bars after being convicted of several felonies related to the shooting death of her husband, including perjury. The maximum she faces is 65 years in prison, according to HLN Legal Correspondent Jean Casarez.
At least one member of the widow’s late husband, Rusty Sneiderman, is expected to make a statement. Sneiderman will also have an opportunity to address the court – if she chooses.
The Georgia widow showed no emotion Monday as she listened to the jury forewoman say she'd been found guilty of nine of the 13 charges against her, including perjury, making a false statement and hindering the apprehension of criminal. They also found her not guilty of four charges, including additional counts of perjury and making a false statement.
The judge set Sneiderman’s sentencing hearing for 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Sneiderman sniffled as she left the courtroom with a deputy and was taken into police custody.
Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to investigators working on her husband’s murder case because of an affair she was having with her former boss, Hemy Neuman. Neuman was found guilty in 2012 of gunning down Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty, outside of an Atlanta-area day care.
Sneiderman, who has denied the affair, did not take the stand during her nine-day trial, but she did testify during Neuman’s murder trial.

Prosecutor Robert James said Sneiderman not only lied to police but also to jurors during that 2012 testimony. James peppered his closing argument on Thursday with several of the statements the widow made on the stand.
At several points, he even addressed Sneiderman directly, accusing her to her face of dishonesty.

“You’re a liar! You are a liar,” James said to her as she avoided eye contact. “She’s a manipulator, she’s a deceiver. If this was in the street, they’d say she’s got game.”
Sneiderman has maintained her innocence, pleading not guilty to all of the charges against her. Her attorney, Tom Clegg, pointed the finger at investigators during his closing argument, saying they “blew it.”
“Hemy Neuman had an obsession with this woman, had an infatuation with this woman,” Clegg said. “The only way he had a shot, in his mind, was to kill Rusty Sneiderman. She is a victim, make no mistake.”
Sneiderman was originally facing more serious charges, including malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault, related to the death of her husband. Prosecutors dropped those charges the week before jury selection in the trial began.
She still faces a sizable prison sentence of up to 65 years behind bars, according to HLN Legal Correspondent Jean Casarez.
