The so-called “Pillowcase Rapist” was released from a mental hospital and moved into an Antelope Valley home amid protests by the community Wednesday.
Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown issued a brief order saying that Christopher Evans Hubbart, 63, must be released by July 7, Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement.
Southern California residents journeyed to San Jose Wednesday to protest the release of a serial rapist to their neighborhood who admitted to assaulting dozens of women between 1971 and 1982.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said a Santa Clara County judge has announced that serial rapist Christopher Hubbart potentially could live in the Antelope Valley community of Lake Los Angeles when he’s released from prison.
62-year-old Christopher Hubbart — a convicted serial rapist who has admitted to raping and sexually assaulting 38 women in California between 1971 and 1982 — will be released as soon as housing is found.
District Attorney Jackie Lacey said Tuesday her office will challenge a Bay Area judge’s decision to release a sexually violent predator in Los Angeles County.
A convicted serial rapist’s scheduled release from a state prison hospital has stirred up controversy. Christopher Evans Hubbart was convicted in two separate trials decades ago for committing 34 rapes, 15 of them in the Bay Area.
