DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia woman convicted of lying to investigators about the shooting death of her husband outside a preschool has pleaded for mercy at her sentencing hearing.

Andrea Sneiderman said through tears at Tuesday’s hearing that she hopes for a lenient sentence for the sake of her children.

Sneiderman’s former boss was convicted of fatally shooting her husband outside a preschool in suburban Atlanta. She was initially charged with murder, but prosecutors dropped the murder case and instead went forward with perjury charges and other counts.

Jurors convicted Sneiderman of nine counts on Monday.

Prosecutors maintained that Andrea Sneiderman was having a romantic relationship with Neuman and that she repeatedly lied about the relationship. Sneiderman and her defense team repeatedly denied that there was a romantic relationship and said police bungled the investigation.
