California judge orders serial rapist, Christopher Hubbart to be released

Despite Objections from residents

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- A judge has ordered a serial rapist released to live in a Los Angeles County community in spite of objections from residents.

The Santa Clara County judge issued a brief order Friday saying that 63-year-old Christopher Evans Hubbart must be released by July 7. He'll be allowed to rent a small house in a remote area near the city of Palmdale.

Hubbart has acknowledged raping and assaulting about 40 women between 1971 and 1982. Authorities place the number of victims closer to 100.
