ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Closing statements are under way in Andrea Sneiderman’s perjury trial.
The defense rested its case Thursday morning without calling Sneiderman to testify. The defense began its closing statement after a break for lunch.
Defense attorney Tom Clegg led the jury through the indictment count by count and attacked the credibility of prosecution witnesses.
Andrea Sneiderman’s husband Rusty Sneiderman was shot in November 2010 outside a suburban Atlanta preschool. Her former boss Hemy Neuman was convicted in the killing in March 2012, but was found mentally ill.
Prosecutors say Sneiderman lied to police who investigated her husband’s death and lied under oath during Neuman’s trial. She faces charges of making false statements, hindering an investigation and perjury.
