LOS ANGELES – A Santa Clara County judge has delayed the release of 63-year-old serial rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart to an Antelope Valley location until on or before July 21, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday.
Judge Gilbert Brown previously set this Monday, July 7 as the release date for Hubbart to be placed at 20315 East Avenue R.
His release has been delayed, however, due to a virus outbreak at Coalinga State Hospital, according to the LADA office.
Hubbart admitted to raping approximately 40 women between 1971 and 1982. He was called the “Pillowcase Rapist” because he muffled his victims’ screams with a pillowcase over their heads. View a timeline of Hubbart’s criminal, social, and legal history here.
Since being designated as a sexually violent predator in Santa Clara County in 1996, Hubbart has remained in the custody of the Department of State Hospitals.
His release will be monitored by the Liberty Conditional Release Program, which contracts with the state to place and supervise sexually violent predators.
Under the terms of his release, Hubbart will be required to wear a GPS ankle monitor for 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
He will be transported to group and individual therapy sessions twice a week. For the first six months to a year after his release, a Liberty supervisor will accompany him every time he goes out in public.
