Patient accuses New York psychiatrist of rape during treatment

A 62-year-old Long Island psychiatrist was arrested after one of his patients accused him of raping her during one of their sessions, Nassau County Police said.

Detectives from the NCPD Special Victims Squad arrested Dr. Marshall Hubsher, who lives in ritzy Sands Point, on Wednesday, charging him with third-degree rape and third-degree criminal sexual act, officials said.

The 32-year-old woman, whose name was not released, said Hubsher raped her at his office on Northern Blvd. in Flower Hill around 8 p.m. on April 3, NCPD said.

Hubsher pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Thursday.

His bail was set at $50,000, according to a Nassau County DA spokesman. An order of protection was issued prohibiting Hubsher from contacting the victim.

He is due back in court on April 24.
