DECATUR, Ga., Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Andrea Sneiderman was sentenced in a Decatur, Ga., court Tuesday to five years in prison for perjury in the trial of her boss, convicted of killing her husband.
Monday a jury found Sneiderman, 37, guilty of nine of 13 felony counts, including perjury, hindering the apprehension of a criminal and making false statements to police during the investigation and trial of Hemy Neuman, convicted in 2012 for the murder of Rusty Sneiderman.
DeKalb County, Ga., district attorney Robert James said, after the sentencing by Judge Gregory A. Adams, two families "have been torn apart. This is a very sad situation. In America you cannot lie to police and you cannot lie to a jury."
Adams sentenced her to five years on each count, but allowed her sentences to be served concurrently.
