Hearing on ‘Pillowcase Rapist’ Christopher Hubbart Held in San Jose
A Santa Clara County judge was reviewing evidence at a hearing Wednesday into whether serial rapist Christopher Hubbart’s conditional release should be revoked.
Dubbed the “Pillowcase Rapist,” Hubbart was discharged from a mental health hospital in July to his new home in the 20300 block of East Avenue R in Lake Los Angeles.
Hubbart, who admitted to assaulting dozens of women in the 1970s and ’80s, had been confined since 1996 because of his violent sexual tendencies. He earned the nickname “Pillowcase Rapist” because he sometimes muffled women’s screams with pillowcases.
Hubbart’s release was met with protest and anger from a group of residents who said he never should have been released and feared he would re-offend in their community.
