Pillowcase Rapist to live in Palmdale after release

SAN JOSE, Calif.

A San Jose judge ruled 63-year-old Christopher Hubbart will live in the Southern California community of Palmdale after being released from state custody. Hubbart, convicted and paroled several times, has admitted to raping as many as 40 women and using a pillowcase to muffle their screams.

Hubbart moved to the Bay Area in 1979 after a parole and assaulted 16 women. He was convicted again, then paroled briefly to the City of Claremont in 1993. Hubbart's been in state custody since 1996.
