MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - A former psychiatrist convicted of raping a patient has been sentenced to additional jail time for attempted jury tampering.

Marshall Hubsher was sentenced Wednesday on Long Island.

Hubsher, who lost his medical license, is serving 2 to 3 years after being convicted in 2016 of sexually abusing a woman he was treating for depression. He pleaded guilty last month to burglary and attempted jury tampering charges. He received an additional 90 days to his sentence.

Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/2vndzij ) reports surveillance video showed that during his March 2016 trial, Hubsher sneaked into private jury rooms and left falsified “jury instructions” on doors and tables.

He apologized Wednesday, saying that at the time he was on medication that gave him delusions.

He told the judge he has numerous health issues.
