A Santa Clara County judge today ordered serial rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart to be released to live in Palmdale, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Judge Gilbert Brown ordered Hubbart, 63, to be placed at 20315 East Avenue R in Palmdale within 45 days. That means Hubbart, who admitted raping approximately 40 women between 1971 and 1982, will be released on or before July 7.

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.

He also will be required to report to the judge in San Jose for quarterly progress reports.
