A Long Island mother of four accused of trying to hire a hit man to kill her estranged husband has been freed on bail.

Susan Williams left the Nassau County Jail in East Meadow on Friday afternoon after posting $500,000 bond. She had been held on $1 million bond, but an appeals court ordered that amount cut in half.

Williams has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy and criminal solicitation.

Prosecutors say she offered $20,000 to an undercover officer posing as a hit man and paid $500 as a down payment.

Defense attorney John Carman has said Williams may have had a daydream about hurting her husband that she took too far, but she never would have gone through with it.

If convicted, she faces up to 25 years in prison.
