A former psychiatrist has been sentenced in a case involving attempted jury tampering and burglary, authorities said Wednesday.
Marshall Hubsher of Sands Point was sentenced to one to three years after he pleaded guilty in July to third-degree burglary and two counts of first-degree attempted tampering with a juror, according to Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas…
While Hubsher was on trial in a separate case in 2016, he entered private jury rooms and placed signs there with falsified jury instructions in an effort to tamper with a sitting jury deliberating on his trial. The note directed at the jury claimed to be “jury instructions” regarding reasonable doubt.
However, surveillance footage for the morning revealed that Hubsher first came into the courthouse wearing a leather jacket and baseball hat and holding newspapers. He then left the courthouse, carrying the newspapers, and returned shortly after wearing a suit and using a walker.
Hubsher is currently in prison after a jury found him guilty in 2016 of third-degree rape and third-degree criminal sexual act for sexually abusing a female patient.
