LOS ANGELES (AP) - Residents and government officials from northern Los Angeles County are outraged that a serial rapist linked to attacks on dozens of women could be released into their community.
A state contractor disclosed at a court hearing that Christopher Hubbart might be moved into a single-family home in an unincorporated area near Palmdale after his release.
A judge ruled earlier this year that he should be freed under tight supervision.
Palmdale spokesman John Mlynar told the Los Angeles Times Saturday that city officials are angered that Hubbart could be housed in the area.
County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich calls the court's decision "reckless."
Hubbart has spent nearly two decades in a state mental hospital. Prosecutors say he admitted to sexually assaulting more than three dozen women between 1971 and 1982.
