SANTA CLARITA – A man, who confessed to raping 38 women in both Northern and Southern California was released on a conditional release in July 2014 and was again arrested in August 2016. This makes the fourth release and now fifth arrest, officials said.
Christopher Hubbart, 65, was dubbed the pillowcase rapist because he was reported to use a pillowcase to muffle the screams of his rape victims. His most recent, July 9, 2014, release incited fear and outrage by the community of Lake Los Angeles when he was released to live in the 20300 block of East Avenue.
Hubbart has a history of rape, admitting to raping 38 women in the Los Angeles and Bay area between 1971 and 1982. Hubbart was arrested in 1972 and was released in 1979, after which time he moved to the San Francisco Bay area. Only four years later Hubbart was again behind bars for a rape conviction for raping several Bay-area women. This time, he was not released until 1990 but reoffended and again returning to jail.
Yearly during his incarceration, Hubbart was given psychological evaluation, but was not found to be fit for release until 2014. Hubbart’s release was conditional with many conditions placed on his continued release. He was taken back into custody at his Lake Los Angeles Home on August 9, 2016, after violating several terms of his conditional release, which included five failed polygraph tests.
His fate will now be determined during a January 9-10, 2017 hearing to consider revocation of his conditional release. The hearing will be held at the Santa Clarita Superior Court in Department 32. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said that some portions of the hearing may be closed due to the nature of the evidence presented.
