Andrea Sneiderman denied bond

Posted: Updated:
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

She was once charged with murder but ultimately went to prison for lying. Monday, the widow of a murdered Dunwoody businessman was denied a bond request.

In August, a DeKalb County jury convicted Andrea Sneiderman on nine counts, including perjury and making false statements to police investigating her husband's murder.  She was sentenced to five years in prison.

DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James says the widow lied to Dunwoody Police about her affair with her husband's killer and also withheld critical information about Hemy Neuman's role in Rusty Sneiderman's murder when she testified in Neuman's murder trial last year.

Sneiderman was given credit for the year she served in prison after the District Attorney initially charged her in connection with Rusty's murder. Robert James dropped the murder charge just days before her trial, saying he didn't have enough evidence to get a conviction.

In an hour-long hearing last Thursday, a lawyer for Sneiderman asked a judge to release her on bond while she awaits to appeal her conviction. It was Sneiderman's first court appearance since her sentencing in August.

During the hearing, Sneiderman's lawyer Brian Steel gave details on how the convicted widow interacts with her two children while she's serving out her sentence at Arrendale State Prison. Steele said that the children speak to their mother several times a day on the phone.  Steel said that Sneiderman also receives weekly visits from her parents and children at the prison.

The DeKalb County District Attorney's Office argued against letting Sneiderman out on bond, saying she had the motivation and the means to flee.

    The first ATM for BitCoin users in New York City is up and running in a store in Greenwich Village. The controversial, virtual currency is exchanged using a 'wallet' app on mobile devices. The ATM accepts cash but only returns virtual currency to the app. At the ATM in Flat 128, a store that sells UK-designed items, the fee for store owner Liz Dubois is less than that for a credit card transaction.
