Andrea Sneiderman pleads not guilty in murder plot

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

Andrea Sneiderman pleaded not guilty to the charges against her for allegedly plotting to murder her husband. She and her lawyers were in court for less than 30 minutes.

Sneiderman left the courtroom smiling. FOX 5 asked her several questions as she was leaving, but she did not respond.

Last month a DeKalb County grand jury re-indicted Sneiderman in connection with her husband Rusty's death. She now faces 16 counts, seven of them perjury, four for allegedly making false statements and one each for malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, hindering the apprehension of a criminal and concealment of material facts.

In 2010 Rusty Sneiderman was gunned down outside a Dunwoody daycare. Sneiderman's boss, Hemy Neuman was convicted of the crime.

Prosecutors say Andrea Sneiderman conspired with Neuman to kill her husband, allegedly concealing and destroying evidence of Neuman's guilt. Sneiderman is out on bond, and her trial date has been set for July 29.

Sneiderman's attorney, Doug Chalmers, asked the judge to include Esther Panitch, the attorney for Hemy Neuman's ex-wife in an existing gag order. Their concerns included postings on social media like Facebook and Twitter.

"In our view, a speech, comments or quotes in a book, any broadcast or on social media would qualify for that. We don't want to have to come to you after something has happened and have a debate about whether or not those things fit within the rule and within your order," said Chalmers.

"I have agreed to these subjects. I think it's reasonable to the court's gag order. I believe it's reasonable for any lawyer to be restricted to the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct," Panitch told the judge.

Panitch went on to say she knew of no movie or book deals.

Prosecutors claim Sneiderman had a relationship with another man named Joseph Dell. The court recently allowed her to speak with Dell, who is now on the case's witness list. Her lawyer calls the two friends.

Despite her serious predicament, Sneiderman is apparently concerned about who should portray her if a movie is made of the case. According to court documents, Sneiderman told Dell Sandra Bullock would be a good actress, if "Sandra Bullock wasn't so old." It appears she saw the Bullock's movie Miss Congeniality, and thought the character in that movie reminded her of herself.

Sneiderman's next court date is set for April 4th at 1:30 p.m.

    New York's smallest piece of private land

    The Hess triangle is a tiny piece of private property in Greenwich Village. Manhattan historian Joyce Gold explained the origins of the property: After World War I, New York City seized a beautiful residence and tore it down so it could extend Seventh Avenue and the west side subway below it. The city left the building's owner only a tiny scrap of property so small it requested he donate the triangle to make way for a sidewalk. The man refused, took the city to court and won.
