On Aug. 19, Andrea Sneiderman was found guilty on nine counts in her federal perjury trial, and not guilty on four counts.

Last month, three murder counts were dropped by DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James from Sneiderman’s trial — malice murder, felony murder and aggravated assault.

Sneiderman was found guilty on the following counts:

Count 1- hindering the apprehension of a criminal [relating to Sneiderman destroying text messages and a record of telephone calls between herself and Hemy Neuman on the date of Rusty Sneiderman’s murder, concealing he romantic relationship with Neuman from the police and concealing her knowledge in Neuman’s culpability of the murder]

Count 2- concealment of material facts [relating to knowingly and willfully concealing from the Dunwoody Police Department the existence of a romantic relationship with Hemy Neuman]

Count 3- false statement [making a false statement Lt. D. Barnes and Deputy Chief D. Sides of the Dunwoody Police Department that she never expected Neuman was involved in the murder prior to Dec. 28, 2010]

Count 6- perjury [made a false statement under oath that she was not romantically involved with Neuman]

Count 8- false statement [made false statements to Dunwoody police during the investigation that she made it clear to Neuman that she did not want him to pursue her romantically]

Count 9- perjury [made a false statement under oath that she did not share a hotel room with Neuman in Longmont, Colo.]

Count 10- false statement [denied that Neuman was with her in Longmont, Colo. in July 2010]

Count 11- perjury [made a false statement under oath that at the time she was in Longmont, Colo. she believed Neuman was there on business for General Electric]

Count 12- perjury [made a false statement under oath that she and Neuman did not kiss while in Greenville, S.C.].

Sneiderman was found not guilty on:

Count 4- perjury [that she did not have knowledge that Rusty Sneiderman had been shot at the time she spoke with Donald Sneiderman prior to her arrival at Dunwoody Prep]

Count 5- perjury [that she did not know what happened to Rusty Sneiderman at the time she arrived to Dunwoody Prep]

Count 7- perjury [that none of Neuman’s feelings for her were ever returned]

Count 13- perjury [that due to her mother’s concern for her safety, she did not report her suspicions of Neuman’s involvement in Rusty Sneiderman’s murder to the Dunwoody Police Department].

At the Aug. 20 sentencing hearing, Sneiderman was sentenced to five years in prison by DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams. Adams gave Sneiderman credit for her year under house arrest, as well as sentencing her as a first offender. Sneiderman has 30 days to file an appeal to the sentence.

In the attached indictment, note the first three counts were dropped last month - so Count 4 should be read as Count 1 and continue through to Count 13.
