Los Angeles County to challenge release of sex predator who raped 40 women

District Attorney Jackie Lacey says her office will challenge a Northern California judge's decision to release a sexually violent predator in Los Angeles County.

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown granted convicted serial rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart a conditional release from custody in May.

Hubbart raped 40 women in California between 1971 and 1982, including 26 women in Los Angeles County.

Prosecutors say Hubbart was born and raised in LA County and considers it home.

The writ will not contest the judge's decision to allow Hubbart's conditional release, only the location of his release. Officials are searching for appropriate housing.

Hubbart's prison term ended in January 1996. But he remained in a state hospital under a law that allows sexually violent predators to be civilly committed for treatment.
