ATLANTA, GA -- Immediately following the reading of the verdict in sentencing in the State vs Hemy Neuman, attorneys for Sneiderman's widow Andrea released a statement.
The statement released by Jennifer Little, co-counsel with Douglas Chalmers for Andrea Sneiderman, reads as follows:
Andrea is grateful for and relieved by the jury's guilty verdict and the sentence. Nothing can bring back her husband, but it is reassuring to her that, after all of the noise and distractions surrounding this case, some measure of justice has been done for Rusty.
Rusty's family misses and mourns him every single day. But today, at least, the family can be comforted by the fact that his killer will spend the rest of his days behind bars.

Rusty was an amazing man, and a wonderful husband and father. He is missed every day by so many. The world is worse off without him.
This trial has been extremely difficult for Andrea and her family. They need time to grieve, and time to heal. As such, Andrea has no plans to make any further public statement at this time. We respectfully ask that the public and the media respect this decision in the interest of the entire Sneiderman family.
