In November 2010, Scheiderman's husband, Rusty Scheiderman was shot in front of a preschool outside of Atlanta.
In 2012, a jury convicted Scheiderman's former boss and alleged lover, Hemy Neuman, of murdering Rusty. Neuman, who was also found mentally ill, was sentenced to life in prison.
Andrea Sneiderman was accused of lying to authorities about her involvement and knowledge about her husband's murder.
Originally supposed to be announced on Friday, the the verdict was delayed until Monday afternoon.
Sneiderman showed no strong emotion and was escorted out of the courtroom by deputies shortly after the verdict was read.
Closing arguments for the case were made last Thursday, and according to the defense, prosecutors had a weak case but just wanted to convict Scheiderman of something.
However, the jury largely sided with the prosecution and Sneiderman was found guilty of hindering the apprehension of a criminal, concealment of material fact, three counts of giving false statements and four counts of perjury.
She was found not guilty of three counts perjury and one count of giving a false statement.
