New Jersey Man Unable To Use Arms Facing Gun Charge

TRENTON — Bail has been lowered for a southern New Jersey man facing a gun possession count, a charge his lawyer calls “shocking” because he has no use of his arms due to a spinal condition.

The Times of Trenton says 28-year-old Marcus Hubbard, of Salem, has been jailed since his arrest in Trenton in August.

Authorities say he was in a car with three other men where a stolen 9mm handgun and a prescription bottle of codeine were found. All four men were eventually charged after none of them took responsibility for the items.

A state judge agreed during Tuesday’s hearing to lower Hubbard’s bail from $100,000 to $35,000. But his attorney, Caroline Turner, says she will continue her efforts to have him freed without bail.
