Associated Press Release

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- A judge has sentenced the Georgia woman convicted of lying to investigators about the shooting death of her husband outside a preschool to spend the next four years in prison.

The judge handed down a five-year sentence for Andrea Sneiderman on Tuesday. However, the judge said Sneiderman will get credit for time served, which means she'll spend about four years behind bars.

Sneiderman had said through tears earlier in the day that she hoped for a lenient sentence for the sake of her children. Prosecutors had asked for a 20-year sentence after Sneiderman was convicted of perjury and other counts.

Sneiderman's former boss was convicted of fatally shooting her husband outside a preschool in suburban Atlanta. She was initially charged with murder, but prosecutors dropped the murder case and instead went forward with perjury charges and other counts.

DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- A hearing is set for Friday to discuss one of the final remaining legal issues before the trial of Andrea Sneiderman is to begin.

Sneiderman, who is accused of arranging for her husband to be killed outside a suburban Atlanta preschool, is set to stand trial next week.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports ( that Friday's hearing will determine whether jurors will hear conversations regarding whether the Dunwoody widow had an affair with the man convicted of killing her husband.

She is accused of arranging for her former boss, Hemy Neuman, to kill her husband, Rusty Sneiderman, outside the preschool in November 2010.

Andrea Sneiderman has consistently denied any involvement in the death of her husband and has pleaded not guilty. She has also repeatedly denied being romantically involved with Neuman.
