Christine Hubbs Facing 67 Sexual Assault Charges For Statutory Rape
PLEASANTON, Calif. (CBS/KPIX/AP) Christine Hubbs, a 42-year-old mother who allegedly had a long-term sexual relationship with two teenage boys, has been arraigned on felony charges of unlawful sex, but delayed entering a plea while her defense lawyer reviews the evidence against her.
Hubbs, of suburban Livermore, Calif. remained jailed on $4.3 million bail following a brief court appearance Monday. She's facing 67 counts.
The mother of three was arrested Thursday following an investigation that began July 27 when the mother of one of the alleged victims said she found a nude photo of Hubbs on her son's cell phone, said Livermore police Lt. Matt Sarsfield.
A police affidavit from the case alleges that Hubbs made advances on one of the boys when he was 14 and dating her daughter.
Authorities say that relationship lasted from December 2008 to January of this year.
Police said while they were investigating, they interviewed another boy who said he was also having sex with Hubbs. That boy, who is now 14 years old, told police he had a sexual relationship with Hubbs from December 2009 through July.
"The sex occurred in the county of Alameda, throughout different locations, hotels, including her vehicle," Sarsfield said.
Hubbs gave gifts and money to the two boys while maintaining the alleged relationships, Sarsfield said.
He described the two teens as "very scared" during the course of the investigation. Their names have not been released.
Hubbs' husband attended Monday's court hearing, as did stunned friends of the couple.
