Andrea Sneiderman was released from Arrendale State Prison on Monday morning. She served 22 months of a five-year sentence.

Steve Hayes, the director of public affairs for the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles, said Andrea Sneiderman served the recommendation given by the Clemency Board.

"She served more than her parole eligibility. She was eligible in mid to late April and she was released this morning," Hayes said.

In August 2013, Sneiderman was sentenced to serve a concurrent sentence of five years, minus the year she had already served. She was found guilty on nine of 13 charges including hindering the apprehension of a criminal, concealment of material facts, perjury and false statement.

The jury found Sneiderman lied to cover up an affair she was having with her boss, Hemy Neuman, who is serving a life sentence for the 2010 murder of her husband, Rusty Sneiderman.

Sneiderman, a mother of two, denied any involvement in the murder outside a Dunwoody daycare center. In 2012, authorities arrested her and charged her with murder, along with several other counts. But days before the trial, the judge dismissed the murder charge after DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James said he lacked the evidence for a murder conviction.

Sneiderman will be under parole supervision through the end of her sentence on Aug. 21, 2017.

"She is under standard supervision at this point. Those would include direct contact with her parole officer and employment," Hayes said. "She can't leave the state without permission. She can't change her address without permission. She would be subject to search of residence and belongings in her control."
