"This was a triumph of resilience," District Attorney Rosen said." The victim has struggled her whole life with learning disabilities and challenges to be self-sufficient. If we are not fighting for her, then who are we fighting for? It has been a long road for this remarkable woman and we are thankful to the jury for providing her some closure and, for our community, justice after an unconscionable and violent crime."

On the afternoon of April 9, the victim, who was 31-years-old at the time, traveled to Stubblefield's home after he contacted her through a babysitter website.

After the assault, the victim immediately went to the Morgan Hill Police Department to report the crime.
