Santa Clara County judge to reconsider serial rapist’s freedom

SANTA CLARA (KRON) — A convicted serial rapist could find himself back behind bars. Prosecutors are seeking to revoke the release the “Pillowcase Rapist” Christopher Hubbert, whose residence in a rural neighborhood has upset a Southern California desert community.

Wednesday morning, Santa Clara County Judge Richard Loftus is expected to reconsider a request to lock Hubbert in a state mental health hospital.

The convicted rapist was released from a mental hospital in 2014. Since then he has been living in the small town of Lake Los Angeles, east of Palmdale, in northeast Los Angeles County.

The 54-year-old is required to wear a monitoring device around his ankle and lives with an around-the-clock security guard.

Hubbart used pillowcases to muffle the screams of some of the dozens of women he assaulted between 1971 and 1982.

Hubbart’s public defender didn’t respond to email and phone requests for comment.
