2004 - Last day in Sacramento for Sen. Pete Knight, who succumbs one month later to a sudden onset of leukemia [story]
Pete Knight


hubbartserial-rapistSanta Clara Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown ruled that serial rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart today will reside at 20315 E. Ave R in unincorporated Palmdale upon his release. This action opens up a 45-day window for public comment which will be considered by the Judge at the next court hearing.

“It’s outrageous that an admitted sexual predator with a long history of brutal crimes against women will be released in this community – or any community,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. “He belongs in an institution where he cannot prey upon the public.”

Despite factual evidence that Hubbart has had no connection to Los Angeles County since 1972 — with the exception of a brief two-month period while on parole — Judge Brown has allowed Hubbart conditional release into Los Angeles County.

Hubbart is a violent sex predator believed to have raped as many as 40 women in a 10-year period. He has admitted to raping 26 women in the Los Angeles area in the early 1970’s and an additional 15 woman were raped in the San Francisco Bay area in the early 1980’s. His previous paroles were revoked numerous times due to assaulting women, his mental condition and threat to public safety.

  24. Well that’s fraggin great! Why doesn’t the judge have him live next door to him, so he can keep an eye on him? Turds like this should never get out…

  25. Linda Perera Linda Perera says:

    if this guy is so safe and not a threat to anyone I think he should move into the Judges neighborhood.

    Let him move in. Give his address to all the gang members, there’s plenty of them in Palmdale, let them take care of him.

  42. Wilma Dikfit Wilma Dikfit says:

    I don’t understand how he escaped the jailhouse justice. Why didn’t the boy inside finish him off?

  43. Don’t want him in my neighborhood. Let him live with Jerry Brown.

  44. He’s safer in jail cause what goes around comes around. He will get his.

  45. Niki Marie Niki Marie says:

    Hope he gets hit my a bus

  46. Lisa Sumner Lisa Sumner says:

    Heard he was already released. Lake LA area.

  47. If you don’t want him in your neighborhood, then you have to show up at court. Complaining about him on Facebook won’t do a bit of good. Show up and be heard.

  48. And Eric Holder thinks he should be able to vote upon release.

  49. Let him live in San Jose next to the judge that is releasing him.

  50. Let him live in San Jose next to the judge that is releasing him.

  51. Since the judge is awaiting to hear from the public, I feel EVERYONE should get together and tell the judge to open his home to this SERIAL RAPIST…. putting him on the East side is NOT a solution….. send him out of State … let him move next to Justin Beiber!!!

  52. Since the judge is awaiting to hear from the public, I feel EVERYONE should get together and tell the judge to open his home to this SERIAL RAPIST…. putting him on the East side is NOT a solution….. send him out of State … let him move next to Justin Beiber!!!

  53. Lorena Garay Lorena Garay says:

    (not that I live in Palmdale thank God) but now that we all do own guns. This POS better be ready because someone will take this bastrd down if he tries to be slick again. Palmdale is not like it used to be…so he will be put in his place and given to him what he deserves which is way over due .,.

  66. Jamie Mayabb Jamie Mayabb says:

    There is so much desert out here if he is released he won’t be around for long and im sure he will never be found!!! The court system does not care about us other residents letters won’t do anything they will allow him to be dropped sooo, well will see how long he is around if he comes to this valley

  68. It was on the news also. Someone is going to get killed. He is not adapted to outside life. Give him a week and he will strike

  69. Greg Brown Greg Brown says:

    Copy and post this as many times as you like. Write a letter. Inundate this judge with your feelings.

  70. That’s right down the street from the schools -.-

  71. Oh great bring him over here to our neck of the woods! Why the hell is he even being released is my question?!!!

  72. Javi says:

    This case is an excellent example of why citizens who can pass a background check and pass firearm training with quarterly qualifying should be issued Concealed carry permits. Citizens should not have to rely on law enforcement alone to protect themselves and their families. And there should be no such thing as a “10 round limit” for magazines. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED

  73. Tim Neuner Tim Neuner says:

    We are a dumping area from the south.Im so sick and tired of this crap.Im going to get the hell out of here soon.

  74. Zoe Thomas Zoe Thomas says:

    What is wrong with that judge ? He should rot in jail… so the next victim we should blame on the judge because hes allowing this to continue by letting him out

  75. That’s just past the fin and feather private lake and cap’n area, lots of family’s every week just what they need a violent pervert.

  76. Megan says:

    He needs to be incarcerated for life. All of us in the SCV an surrounding areas are jeopardized by this sick predator on the loose. This makes NO sense!!!!!

  77. Linda Tah Linda Tah says:

    @ Kelly Porter Conklin, Who are you to imply we won’t be there @ court? Maybe commenting is something you consider complaining, Others may call it communication for the purpose of raising awareness.

  78. Larry Stein Larry Stein says:

    Go to hell you bastard.

  79. Christi Love Christi Love says:

    Deborah Enay be safe!

  80. Like we need anymore reasons to be worried.

  81. Rob Neville Rob Neville says:

    Send him to Afghanistan!! Pretty sure he won’t be touching anyone there long!!

  82. Kim Stephens Kim Stephens says:

    There go the property values

  83. Ami Ann Ami Ann says:

    What is wrong with this idiot? Why doesn’t someone simply remove from society and the human race?? No tears she’d by anyone I’m sure… Judge is an idiot!!

  84. Alana Smith Alana Smith says:

    Does anyone know how old he is now?

  85. He has already been institutionalized keep him. He wouldn’t know what to do upon his release. Except rape.

  86. Y’all Get YOUR, Pillowcases & You Know What You Got To Do with Them ” PUT THEM UP !
