Sneiderman seeks return of insurance money tied to husband’s murder


Andrea Sneiderman’s attorneys moved Tuesday to have the life insurance money received after her husband’s death returned now that murder charges against her have been dropped.

The state seized more than $2 million from Sneiderman following her arrest last August. She was found guilty last week on nine of 13 felony counts, including perjury and hindering the apprehension of a criminal and was sentenced to five years on each count to run concurrently.

Sneiderman’s husband, Rusty, was gunned down by her then-boss, Hemy Neuman, in November 2010 in the parking lot of a Dunwoody day care. Jurors concluded she lied to investigators about her relationship with Neuman in an attempt to conceal an affair.

Rusty Sneiderman’s parents and brother have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the Dunwoody widow and have asked a judge to continue the freeze on her assets until their civil case is resolved.

On Monday, Andrea Sneiderman’s motion for a bond hearing was granted by DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory A. Adams. Defense attorney Brian Steel, hired to work on her appeal, has filed a motion for a new trial, contending that the verdict against her was “contrary to the evidence and without evidence to support it.”

The bond hearing is scheduled for Nov. 6.

Sneiderman is serving her sentence at Arrendale State Prison in Alto, located in northeast Georgia.
