SAN FRANCISCO – Prosecutors are seeking to revoke the release of a serial rapist whose residence in a rural neighborhood has upset a Southern California desert community.
Santa Clara County Judge Richard Loftus on Wednesday is expected to consider a request to lock up "Pillowcase Rapist" Christopher Hubbart in a state mental health hospital. Another judge released Hubbart from the hospital last year and approved his living in a community near Palmdale, California, in northeast Los Angeles County. The 64-year-old is required to wear a monitoring device around his ankle. He 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.
