Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey announced today that a Santa Clara County judge revoked the conditional release of serial rapist Christopher Hubbart following a two-day hearing.
Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Richard Loftus issued a seven-page ruling today and ordered Hubbart, 65, to be recommitted to Coalinga State Hospital for a minimum of a year.
“Christopher Hubbart is a prolific serial rapist and even after years of treatment he remains a danger to women,” District Attorney Lacey said. “Today’s ruling reaffirms our belief that he should remain in a state hospital for additional treatment.”
Hubbart was taken into custody at his Lake Los Angeles residence on Aug. 9, 2016, by Coalinga State Hospital police officers after he violated several terms of his conditional release, including failing five polygraph tests.
Hubbart admitted raping dozens of women between 1971 and 1982. He was designated a sexually violent predator in 1996.
Hubbart had been in the custody of the Department of State Hospitals until May 2014 when a judge ordered his release.
