“It’s outrageous that an admitted sexual predator with a long history of brutal crimes against women will be released in this community – or any community,” said Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich. “He belongs in an institution where he cannot prey upon the public.”

Hubbart has a history of sexual violence and is believed to have raped as many as 40 women in a 10-year period, according to the release.

He has admitted to raping 26 women in the Los Angeles area in the early 1970’s and an additional 15 women in the San Francisco Bay area in the early 1980’s, according to the release.

His previous paroles were revoked due to assaulting women, his mental condition and threat to public safety, according to the release.
