The jail sentence was in connection with her role in the sledgehammer attack of her baby daddy nearly a decade ago. Pamela Buchbinder, the disgraced psychiatrist, admitted last month to being involved in the attempted murder scheme on her fellow shrink and former lover Dr. Michael Weiss, reported New York Post.

But during Buchbinder's sentencing in Manhattan Supreme Court, she suddenly tried to withdraw her plea. She tried to fire her lawyers after claiming that she hadn’t taken her medicines on the day she agreed to the deal. She added that she was high off second-hand smoke that day. According to her, people in the holding facility had been smoking synthetic marijuana near her.

Justice Thomas Farber quickly rejected her motion. He said that Buchbinder “appeared perfectly fine and perfectly coherent” when she pleaded guilty on Sept. 7 to first-degree attempted assault and burglary over the Nov. 12, 2012, hit on Weiss. As part of the plea deal, she dodged an attempted murder charge. It could have landed her up to 25 years in prison if she was convicted at trial.

In a victim impact statement on Tuesday, Weiss told the court that he was grateful to avoid a trial. But he feared the day his attacker would be eventually released. He said that he suffers from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and is always looking over his shoulder, according to 4 NBC New York.

Buchbinder had manipulated her bipolar cousin, Jacob Nolan, into carrying out the attack in 2012, said prosecutors. They added that she also took him to a Home Depot to buy a sledgehammer weighing 10 pounds the night before the attack. Prosecutors added that she also gave him a knife. He was also given a hand-drawn map that had directions on how to enter Weiss’ home office on West 57th Street. Weiss was repeatedly stabbed and bludgeoned all over his body, but miraculously survived.

Buchbinder had come up with the plot after arguing with her baby daddy over the visitation of their son, who was 6 at the time, prosecutors said. In the wake of the grisly attack, Weiss gained full custody of their son.

As for Buchbinder, she was arrested in 2017 and has been in custody ever since. Nolan was convicted at trial of attempted murder in 2016. He was sentenced to nine years in state prison, reported ABC7.
