Andrea Sneiderman Verdict: Guilty of 9 of 13 Counts

By | August 19, 2013

In case you missed the verdict, Andrea Sneiderman has been found guilty of 9 of 13 counts.

Andrea was emotionless as the verdicts were read. The judge has set her sentencing hearing for 9:00 a.m. E.T. on Tuesday. She has 30 days to file an appeal.

Andrea was tearful as she was taken into police custody.

Many in the social media realm believe that she got what she deserved. Some speculate that murder charges may be forthcoming despite them being dropped last month. Each conviction carries a potential sentence of five to ten years. Lawyers commenting on the case say that such a harsh sentence is unlikely because she is a first-time offender and the crimes are non-violent in nature. Friends of Andrea obviously disagree with the verdict. One friend told the media that, in her opinion, the verdict was a travesty and a reaction to the George Zimmerman case.

    The love-starved girlz in prison are gonna like little Andrea a lot! Good luck with that, Andrea. I’ll bet you come away from your stay with a nice big dose of humility, and God knows you need a dose.

    What’s with the Zimmerman backlash remark? Because there were AAs on the jury? I’m not one to find racism under every rock, but that’s what that remark sure looks like to me.

    She got caught lying to the police and the court and now it’ time to pay the price.
    It will be interesting to see if she speaks tomorrow and comes clean to the judge.
    Tonight she needs to have a come to Jesus meeting with her ego and beg the judge
    for mercy Zimmerman trial? Give it a rest.

    Wow, that really is a racist remark. I love that the (black) forewoman tortured her by taking so long to read the verdict……and the verdict is…..and it is…..and on count one….in this here court of….we find…the verdict is….and on count one….we the jury….lets see….we the jury….

    The time for appeal begins to run after the sentence actually, not the verdict. Its called the final judgment rule. Must be the last order before the time for appeal begins to run. So she has 30 days from whenever they sentence her. (I know some reporter reported it that way.) Same with Jodi Arias, which is why she hasn’t filed her notice of appeal yet.

      I agree the forewoman was very enjoyable to listen to. Slowly, on the first count “Not. Guilty”. I envisioned Andrea’s glee at the thought she was going to go home. Then onto the next counts and BANG BANG BANG..

      As to her friend’s remark, that was really smart, considering the guy who is going to sentence her is black. Apparently, Andrea picks friends just like herself, who don’t know when to shut the heck up. Doh.

    A just verdict. This woman is a liar and a manipulator, and totally consumed with herself. Like Jodi, she has great confidence she can hoodwink her way out of her problems, and has had much success in this regard with her supporters, but obviously not with this jury.
    The closing statement by DA James was passionate and dynamic, and did much to tie the State’s case together. On the other hand, I doubt the arrogant Clegg’s character assassination and ridicule of Shayna Citron, in particular, and other State’s witnesses was in the best interests of his client – though he was certainly a good fit for AS.
    To claim a backlash from the Zimmerman case is to draw a very long bow indeed, but that’s A and her supporters – she’s always the victim and it’s always somebody else’s fault.

      Meh, I’m good with concurrent sentencing. She was convicted nine times of telling what amounted to, essentially, a single lie. And the lie was only material because it affected a determination of the mental state of Hemy Neuman (who was determined to be crazy anyway, in spite of what Andrea said).

      I’m not predicting what chance Sneiderman might have on appeal but I’m thinking back to the four counts of false statements Casey Anthony was convicted of. Jose Baez argued the four counts amounted to double jeopardy. Jeff Ashton argued that each of the four counts represented a distinct and separate lie, each of which required a specific investigatory action by law enforcement. Judge Perry agreed with Ashton, but gave her a concurrent sentence as was done in the Sneiderman case.

    BOMBSHELL TONIGHT

    Robert James, Dekalb County District Attorney, tells Ryan Smith of HLN that a review of old evidence plus late-breaking discovery received from the defense left him with serious doubts as to Sneiderman’s guilt in the murder of her husband. At this time, he doesn’t believe murder charges will ever be brought. He does not rule out the possibility of new evidence coming to light at some point in the future.

      Ya a real BOMB SHELL just like most of the cases going on now. I’m spitting nails – to bad they can’t be at Sneiderman’s head.

    Verdict was just – sentencing, especially after her “performance” in her statement before sentencing is not just. I was a performance with no admonition of any guilt on her part but rather that SHE was the victim in all this. Now she uses her children as the reason for her to have complete leniency. A crock in my book. 5 years and credit for 1 making it 4 years. She will do far less than that!

    1. Maria Cristina Santana, JD

      That was quite a performance. Nose crying, not one actual tear, just like all the other fakers. (Susan Smith, Jodi Arias, Marlene Aisenberg, Darlene Rutier, etc.) Voice trembling, hyperventilating, heavy sighs, sob, sob, sniffle, sniflle, NOT ONE TEAR. She’s so unlikeable because of her theatrics, its hard to feel sorry for her if in fact she was just covering up an affair rather than involved in the murder. I’ve cried more tears watching The Way We Were.
