Neuman v. GeorgiaAnnotate this Case
Appellant Hemy Neuman was indicted and tried for murder and firearm possession in connection with the shooting death of Russell Sneiderman. Neuman pled not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming that he suffered from mental illness that rendered him incapable of distinguishing between right and wrong in relation to his crimes. The jury found Neuman guilty but mentally ill. Neuman appealed the sentence, arguing the trial court erred in ruling on the admission and exclusion of certain evidence. Because the trial court erred in admitting evidence, which was protected by the attorney-client privilege, the Supreme Court reversed and remanded for further proceedings.
