The suburban mother from Livermore, Calif. told a reporter with ABC station KGO-TV that she's not a predator and didn't force anyone into sex.

"I have to take responsibility, but I don't want to be portrayed as a predator or someone that went out and forced this on anyone," Hubbs told KGO. "This was not the case at all."

Hubbs was arrested on August 5 following an investigation that began July 27 when the mother of one of the alleged victims said she found a topless photo of Hubbs on her son's cell phone, said Livermore police Lt. Matt Sarsfield.

During the interview, Hubbs claims the first sexual encounter with her first victim, a 14-year-old who was dating her daughter, happened during a family vacation at a cabin. Hubbs says she fell asleep with her two daughters and the boy in the same queen-sized bed.

"The next thing I know, you know, just kind of feeling around and I kind of knocked him, knocked him and it just kind of went on and I was exhausted and I just don't know what happened," Hubbs told KGO reporter Dan Noyes. "I don't know how I broke down. I don't know how I let it happen."

Noyes acknowledged that her interpretation of the incident took responsibility away from her.

"Well, I didn't do - I didn't start it," the 42-year-old woman replied. "I didn't touch anything back. It was him. He started it."

Hubbs was sentenced on March 25 to five years in state prison for four felony counts for having sex with two underage boys. She pleaded no contest in February to one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor under 16 and three counts of committing lewd acts on a child. According to CBS affiliate KCBS, she took a plea deal that dropped 63 other felony sex charges against her.

Alameda County Superior Court Judge Kevin Murphy ordered that after Hubbs is released from prison, she will have to be on probation for three to 10 years and must register as a sex offender.
