Former Baseball Agent Jason Dubin Receives Two Years Probation For Computer Tampering With Sexual Motivation

Former Phoenix, Arizona-based baseball agent Jason Dubin was scheduled to receive sentencing at the end of September after pleading guilty to “two counts of computer tampering with sexual motivation” resulting from his his attempt to meet two underage girls for a “blowjob tutorial.”  On Friday, Dubin was sentenced to two years of probation.

As reported by the Phoenix NewTimes:

After getting arrested by Phoenix police, Dubin alerted the authorities that he was a lawyer who represented athletes. It’s not clear who he was representing while he was running his own agency, Athletic Advisory Group LLC. His former agency, Gaylord, represented clients such as the New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez, the Cincinnati Reds’ Bronson Arroyo, and apparently the only Major League Baseball player who wears a size extra-small jersey, Dan Uggla.
