Landlord Won't Rent House to “Pillowcase Rapist”

Christopher Hubbard was scheduled to be released into Lake Los Angeles.

In another signal that a serial rapist was not welcome in a high desert community north of Los Angeles, a homeowner has rescinded an offer to rent out his home to a 62-year-old convicted serial rapist, officials said on Friday.

Christopher Hubbard, the so-called "Pillowcase Rapist," who's admitted to raping at least 38 women in California between 1971 and 1982, was set to rent a home in Lake Los Angeles after his expected release from custody in December, officials said.

A Santa Clara judge said Oct. 25 that Hubbard might be able to live in Lake Los Angeles after his release.

But the owner of the home rescinded the offer after residents complained that his arrival in their neighborhood would be bad. Community members wrote more than 100 letters and collected more than 1,000 petition signatures to keep him out.
