By Lake Los Angeles resident Nichole Stone

My name is Nichole Stone and I am a resident of the 17000 block of Laredo Vista Avenue, exactly two doors down from where the California court system wishes to place serial rapist Christopher Hubbart.

I am only 20 years old and am now beginning to feel this nightmare unraveling in the place I call home.

My safety zone would become my worst nightmare if they place Christopher Hubbart so close to me. The fear not only is with myself, but all those who also live in the neighborhood and community.

How is this fair? Where is our justice? How can you make us fear the worst in the place we loved the most?

I felt like there was nothing to do except wait and watch. Watch my home become the place where media takes over and we lose our sense of stability. Where the kids that played outside would be called in for fear that something might happen. Where the women at home while their husbands work would lose their sense of security. Even the families who had once made home here, leave because of concern for the safety of their family. Then I thought, no family should ever be forced out of their home because of one decision by one judge.

Then I also thought about the victims, and their peace of mind. Is this decision fair to those of the lives he once destroyed?

My concerns are a few: What will happen to this place I know as home? The families?  The sense of security? What would we do? If we had to relocate, where would we go? What would happen to this small town and all those who reside in it? What about the victims he has hurt before? And what about the new one it would take to show the system this was a mistake?

I decided to take a stand. Start a protest where not only will you hear me voice my opinion, but the opinions of those around me as well.

This is only the beginning. We may be a small town but together we are a family who has something to say.

Nichole Stone has created the Keep Christopher Hubbart out of Lake Los Angeles Facebook page, a movement to fight the court’s decision to relocate Hubbart to Lake Los Angeles.

Protest planned

The group is hosting a protest, which starts at 5 p.m., Saturday, November 2, at Stephen Sorensen Park, located at 16801 East Avenue P in Lake Los Angeles. They’re encouraging the entire Antelope Valley community to attend the protest. For more information on the “Keep Christopher Hubbart out of Lake Los Angeles” movement, visit and “Like” the group’s Facebook page at facebook.com/keephubbartout.

Hubbart was nicknamed the “Pillowcase Rapist” because he muffled his victim’s screams with a pillowcase over their heads. Hubbart, who admitted to raping approximately 40 women between 1971 and 1982, could be relocated to 17132 Laredo Vista Avenue as early as December.View a complete timeline of Hubbart’s criminal past here.

Lake LA residence withdrawn

Editor’s Update 11/1/13: Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacey confirmed today that the property owner of the Lake Los Angeles residence that was slated to house convicted serial rapist Christopher Hubbart has withdrawn the property from consideration.

However, the protest is still on for 5 p.m., Saturday, November 2, at Stephen Sorensen Park. Organizers say Hubbart may be out of that house, but that doesn’t mean he’s out of the Antelope Valley.

    As I stated elsewhere…I live in another County close to LA County. I don’t care if that creep is housed next door, or close to me….why?
    Well, for one thing everyone in our neighborhood would be well aware of his criminal history, so if he even dared to look funny or try to make any kind of contact, it’d be the last time he ever did.
    His long criminal history of crimes, along with being a mentally disordered sexual predator, etc…would give me or my neighbors every right to use due force to stop this animal…. ;)

      What I took from your statement is that you would either “use due force” AFTER there was another person victimized, or you would PREEMPTIVELY “use due force” if he “dared to look funny or try to make any kind of contact” which would actually make him a victim of your violence.

      Basically, it seems to me you would only be okay for this person to live near you because you think it would give you an excuse to act out violently. Pretty sick.

      Keep writing letters and emails though. They’ll still be trying to put him somewhere and unless he is incarcerated, women will not be safe.

      THE PUBLIC HAS UNTIL NOV. 29 to submit written public comments to Judge Brown by emailing the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office at HubbartLASafetyTaskForce@da.lacounty.gov, or by writing to:

    “Sexually violent predator to be released in Palmdale, not San Jose:
    The choice of the desert city capped a VICTORY for Santa Clara County prosecutors, who successfully fought a battle earlier this year against Los Angeles County to prevent Christopher Hubbart from being placed in the San Jose area, WHERE HE COMMITTED HIS MOST RECENT CRIMES.” http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-courts/ci_24389606/sexually-violent-predator-be-released-palmdale-not-san

      Also from the same article: “Santa Clara County Superior Court JUDGE GILBERT T. BROWN FOUND THAT HUBBART WOULD NOT POSE A DANGER as long as he was closely monitored. Hubbart can apply annually to the court to be released entirely from the GPS monitoring and other conditions, including continuing psychological therapy.”

      • Concerned Citizen
        October 30, 2013 at 1:03 pm

        In May, Santa Clara County Superior Court JUDGE GILBERT T. BROWN determined that Mr. Hubbart’s ability to pass a psychological exam meant he “WOULD NOT BE A DANGER TO OTHERS due to his diagnosed mental disorder while under the supervision and treatment in the community.” The convicted rapist has failed previous psychological exams.

        Hubbart is also not being released in Claremont where he used to live. See this article:
        Claremont protests possible release of rapist Christopher Hubbart
        “Claremont police said Hubbart’s stepfather and mother lived in an unincorporated area near Claremont, but have since died and Hubbart has no other ties to the city.”
        Yet they will release him in the AV where he has absolutely NO TIES WHATSOEVER.

    News article on CA sex offenders cutting off tracking bracelets

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KFSN) — Shocking new statistics from the Department of Corrections show that nearly 5,000 sex offenders in California cut off their GPS tracking bracelets and were loose in our communities. That’s how many warrants were issued between October 2011 and January of this year. (2013)

      You find out where this judge lives, I’ll do my best to be there. Post it so everyone knows. Probably the judge is super rich, with his home beyond a long private driveway. However, his neighbors may put on the pressure. They won’t like our presence. It is about time these judges are inconvenienced by their thoughtless decisions!

    I say we need to find where this judge lives and do protests in his neighborhood. Obviously he doesn’t want this trash near his family, so bring it to him via a protest!

    My husband and I own the 17375 Laredo Vista. My son, and beautiful daughter-in-law, with five young children reside there. All of my grandchildren use the bus stop, in front of the home where this perp. may live, for school. They live two houses away. I recognize that some criminals may be rehabilitated. Yet this is not the case for SERIAL rapists. Once again, the liberal courts care more about the offender than regular folks. I will not be getting any sleep, and my family should not have to live in fear. Our responsibility is to protect my grandchildren and all children & women living in this community. Part of the consequence of behaving like a monster is having decent people not wanting to be around you! They need to find another place for Mr. Hubbart( jail). Myrna Jean Fowler

    What about all the other sex offenders living in the area? Shouldn’t we be worried about them too. Or what about all the parolees released from prison in our area on a regular basis (who don’t have tracking devices)? I’m just as worried as the next person about Hubbart, but to think he is the only threat in the area would be very naive. The media has created a firestorm, and everyone is in a panic over it, when in actuality we have other problems just as big

    I do not understand how they can just put this guy anywhere when he should still be doing time for all of the rapes and assaults he has done. He lived in Santa Clara they should find him a place there. Why should we be put on guard and live in fear we are already living in a place that offers no programs to get us out of here. Leave us alone at least we know are neighbors and we look out for each other. God loves everyone and he knows that this person belongs in Santa Clara if they release him. But my vote would be he has not been able to control his desires in the past after having several chances. Chances are he will re-offend if he is given the opportunity, keep him secure and locked up. Win Win for all!!

    Am I missing something? Rape and False Imprisonment are STRIKABLE offenses. With that many, why is he not on the Habitual Offender 25 to life train? The California justice system is so far out of whack that people are gonna get hurt.

    • 50 shades of grey
      October 29, 2013 at 7:14 pm

      I think he committed his crimes before the Habitual Offender and Three Strikes laws were put in place. Sort of like the people convicted back in the 60’s or 70’s, serving life or long sentences for selling weed.

    You can have all the protests you want. The liberal justice system will win every time. Next time you see a liberal judge be sure to shake his hand and thank him for making your neighborhood a hell hole!!! Law abiding citizens just don’t count anymore-sad.

    A very good solution that the neighbors needs to start going after the property owner where this scumbag will live using the Safe Streets program. Here is a link that gives an example of what can be done;

    If like 20 neighbors each files a $10,000 small claims action against the property owner it just might put a financial hurt on him / her that’s $200,000 or even more if more neighbors get involved. READ THE ABOVE LINK AND THEN MAKE IT HAPPEN.

    I think this will solve the problem for now.

      October 28, 2013 at 10:46 am

      I love this idea!! I haven’t read through the entire link; but would something like this work if, say, you filed the same action against a property owner where a known gang member was living? Maybe we can also *try* to help alleviate some of the infiltration of ‘gang bangers’ we’re getting by families who think that moving a mere 60 miles north will keep them out of trouble!

        October 28, 2013 at 12:05 pm

        1. you have to have a problem at a house in order to have safe streets program be effective,.
        2. there is no gang activity, or trash piling up at his house.
        3. they are not having loud parties every weekend keeping people up.
        4. he hasnt even moved here yet, and its highly unlikely he will, with the amount of protest going on, the Judge will hopefully change his mind, knowing he probably wont be safe in the Lake Los Angeles.

    How and why did the judge choose that particular house? Who lives there now? Is it already housing parolees?

    • Take the AV Back!
      October 28, 2013 at 10:49 am

      Put the address in google and add blockshopper at the end….it will usually give you a history or name the current owner of the address. Sometimes too, just googling the address and going through the list that pops up in the search, will give you an idea of what’s there….

      There is a website – the name of it fails me right now – that you can put an address into and see if it is a ‘halfway’ house, so to speak, or if it houses parolees.

You might be living next door to a pedophile or a sex registrant and not know it because it was not news worthy. Now that you know this dudes status its a problem?? Go on Megan’s Law and you will see how many are living in Lake La…or the AV for that matter….hate me if you want, but the truth hurts.

    Well written and researched! It is hard to believe they could be so stupid as to let him out again! He has repeatedly gone out and done exactly what he was put in prison for every time they let him free. How can they think he is not dangerous? If the prisons are over crowded, release the folks in there for Pot, send the illegal aliens back to wherever they came from…this guy should be castrated or given the death penalty! He does not deserve to see freedom ever again after the damage he has repeatedly done!
    Nobody should have to be afraid to live in their own home or neighborhood because of the stupidity of this Judge…We should probably have the Judge examined for mental incompetence!
