STORY: "Calgary woman accused of jury tampering in psychiatrist husband's trial charged," published by the Canadian Press on February 8, 2013.

GIST: "A Calgary woman accused of tampering with a juror during a sexual assault trial for her psychiatrist husband has been charged with obstruction of justice. Erica Levin, 69, was taken into custody Thursday and is to appear in provincial court Feb. 14. She had previously been charged with contempt of court. Police say they were contacted by Alberta Justice last month after a juror in Dr. Aubrey Levin's trial alleged she had been approached by a relative of the accused and offered cash in return for a not guilty verdict. The juror was released and police began investigating the allegations.........The 74-year-old psychiatrist was eventually convicted of sexually assaulting three of his court-appointed patients and sentenced to five years in prison. He was found not guilty on another two counts and the jury couldn't reach a verdict on charges involving four other men. As the trial entered its latter phases, the juror in question came forward and informed the court that she had been approached by a woman on a transit platform and offered a white envelope containing cash. The juror was dismissed, then Erica Levin was arrested and the trial continued."
