A judge has sentenced the Georgia woman convicted of lying to investigators about the shooting death of her husband outside a preschool to spend the next four years in prison.

The judge handed down a five-year sentence for Andrea Sneiderman on Tuesday. However, the judge said Sneiderman will get credit for time she's served in custody and under house arrest, which means she'll spend about four years behind bars.

Sneiderman had said through tears earlier in the day that she hoped for a lenient sentence for the sake of her children. Prosecutors had asked for a 20-year sentence after Sneiderman was convicted of perjury and other counts.

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.
