Would it make you nervous to know that a man who admitted to sexually assaulting more than three dozen women was going to be your neighbor?
The residents of Lake Los Angeles must be freaking out right about now, considering that a man dubbed as the ‘Pillowcase Rapist’ might soon be living in their neighborhood.
62-year-old Christopher Hubbart is due to be released soon from Coalinga State Hospital, where he has spent the last two decades for treatment after being declared a “sexually violent predator.” His exact release date hasn’t been announced yet, but it could be as early as December.
Hubbart admitted to sexually assaulting more than three dozen women in California between 1971 and 1982. He was known as the ‘Pillowcase Rapist,’ often breaking into homes late at night and placing pillowcases over the heads of his victims to quiet their screams.
He has been released from prison several times in the past, but each time was sent back to prison after assaulting more women.
Pretty scary, right?
When he is released, Hubbart will have to wear an electronic monitoring ankle bracelet, report his movements, and submit to regular lie detector and other tests.
The public has until November 29 to submit written comments to the judge in this case by emailing the DA at HubbartLASafetyTaskForce@da.lacounty.gov or by writing to:
