DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - The judge who sentenced Andrea Sneiderman to prison has ordered a bond hearing in her case.
DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams on Monday ordered a bond hearing for Nov. 6.
The 37-year-old mother of 2 was convicted last week on 9 of 13 counts against her, including perjury and making false statements. Adams sentenced her to serve five years in jail with credit for about a year of house arrest.
An attorney for Sneiderman last week filed a motion seeking a new trial and asked for bond while the appeal is pending. Sneiderman's husband, Rusty Sneiderman, was gunned down in November 2010. Andrea Sneiderman's boss, Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing but found to be mentally ill.
Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to police and to a jury.
