Juvenile Accused of Rape of Intoxicated Woman in Morgan Hill (CA Penal Code §261(3))

After a night of drinking, a woman (40) decided to do what she thought was the responsible thing and take a taxicab home.  However, she was so intoxicated that, once they arrived at her residence, the cab driver needed some help getting her into her home.  A woman and her son (16-years-old) offered their assistance.  So far, this seems like the story of two good Samaritans who, without any good reason, wanted to help a neighbor. However, the 16-year-old son has been accused of returning to the woman’s house later that evening, raping her, and then bringing two other juveniles (one...

Los Angeles County Contests Relocation Release of Repeat San Francisco Sex Offender

62-year-old Christopher Evans Hubbert, a serial rapist, has recently been released from the custody of the state prison hospital at Atascadero.  He had been in prison for a period of 7 years, after which he was paroled.  Hubbert then moved to the Sunnyvale area where he got up to his old tricks again.  He averaged over 2 victims per month in 1981, for a total of 23 women attacked.  Hubbert was convicted of forcible oral copulation (CA Penal Code §288(a)), rape (CA Penal Code §261), false imprisonment (CA Penal Code §236), and sodomy (CA Penal Code §286), in three different counties at...

Richmond High School Gang Rape Draws Attention (CA Penal Code §261)

It sounds like the beginning of a 1970s horror flick based on a Stephen King novel. A 16-year-old girl leaves the safety of the crowd at an innocent Homecoming dance and ends up incoherently drunk and crumpled under a picnic table, dress askew and a trail of grisly pieces of evidence – a high-heeled shoe, a used condom, and a pair of underwear ripped to shreds.  What happened to the unnamed victim may never be known.  She was approached by a classmate after the dance who asked her if she wanted to “party” with some of his friends. What she...

Former Granada High School Teacher Found Guilty of Molestation of Student (CA Penal Code §11164 – §11174.3)

Marie Johnson, 42, has taught math in the Livermore area for more than 13 years. But after pleading no contest to 9 felony charges of molestation relating to her extended connection with a 14-year-old male student, she will spend a good bit of her time in prison and most likely never teach again.  For four months spanning from December 2010 to May 2001, Johnson and the young boy carried on a sexual relationship.  It began with seemingly harmless messaging through social media like Facebook and Words With Friends, along with text messaging.  The two had sex a number of times...

Juveniles Arrested in Pott Case will not be tried as adults (CA Welfare & Institutions Code §602(b);707))

When 15-year-old Audrie Pott took her own life this past September, it was, her mother claims, it was the fault of 3 boys who sexually assaulted Audrie at a party, then shared pictures of the assault with the entirety of her Saratoga high school.  Each of the boys involved were arrested for 1 misdemeanor and 2 felony counts each, including charges of sexual assault, penetration with a foreign object, and possession of child pornography.  In September, the 3 were removed from the Saratoga High School football team, but not expelled from school as the assault happened away from school grounds...

California Penal Code 288 and 261 Convictions in Oakland Exonerated

Unfortunately, the story of Johnny Williams is not uncommon.  In 1998, a 9-year-old girl was raped while on her way to school close to MacArthur Boulevard and 82nd Street.  She told her mother that the man had called himself “Johnny.”  Thinking of the only man with that name that lived in the neighborhood, the girl’s mother led police to Williams and the child identified him at trial.  Yet, Williams maintained his innocence, even after spending the last 14 years in the San Diego state prison for the crime and he finally solicited the help of The Innocence Project out of...
