Man Spared Prison Time In Fatal Car Accident

A judicial marshal was spared prison time today in an accident in Marlborough two years ago that killed an 81-year-old woman.

John Hubert, 43, of Waterbury was given a suspended, six-month sentence and one year of probation in Superior Court in Manchester. He was off-duty when he fatally struck Lourance H. Stevens while driving around, trying to find a bathroom for his wife.

Judge Raymond Norko told Hubert he must not break any motor vehicle laws and must contribute $1,000 to the Marlborough Senior Center in Stevens’ name.
