Livermore Woman Accused of Sex With Teens Agrees to Five Years in Prison

Christine Hubbs pleaded no contest to four felony charges relating to sexual acts with two teenage boys.

A Livermore woman has pleaded no contest to felony charges of having sexual relations with two teenage boys.

Christine Hubbs appeared Thursday morning at the in Pleasanton and agreed to serve five years in state prison, with three to 10 years of parole. She is scheduled to be sentenced March 25.

"I know it moves her life forward and she will pay retribution for what she has done," said Michael Cardoza, Hubbs' attorney. "(Christine) has sympathy and remorse for what happened and extends that to the families involved."

Hubbs, 42, will have to register as a lifetime sex offender, Judge Christine Moruza said in court.

She is charged with four felony counts, including unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.

Hubbs previously pleaded not guilty to 67 felony counts, and five unrelated misdemeanor charges.

The misdemeanor charges stem from allegations that she drove her vehicle recklessly around town while a group of boys shot pellet guns at bystanders from the passenger windows.

The other felony counts and misdemeanor charges were dismissed as part of Hubbs' plea deal.

She was arrested in August after police received information that she was engaging in sexual relations with boys younger than 15.

An investigation found that the sexual assaults took place over an almost two-year period beginning in December 2008, police said.

Hubbs, who is married and has three children, had the option to do less time with four years in county jail, Cardoza said.

She decided on taking an additional year in prison based on having contact visits with her children and husband, Cardoza said.

Hubbs' sentencing is scheduled March 25 at 9 a.m. in Department 518 of the Hayward Hall of Justice.

Are you kidding me - she lost her mind years ago when she decided to play with minors - 5 years...that's nothing - she should have gotten way more - somehow she lucked out...

If it was a man and young women we would demand more time and declare outrage in the community, because it is a woman and young men, it seems light. Those poor boys will be mocked by their peers because of improper parental role someone played in their lives. I pray that they find the proper treatment and understanding by their true friends and family. These type of crimes occurs more in our community than we would like to think

Will she end up only serving half the time?

Hi Cheryl. All we know is she will serve five years in prison, according to what the judge said at the last court appearance. We will have further details after the sentencing.

Typically, a person sentenced to prison will have to do 80-85% of the time of the sentence. so 5 years could be between 4 and 4.5 years. If she has been in custody this entire time, usually the convicted person will receive credit for time served as well.

Very sad that this happens right in front of our eyes! I'm not excusing nor judging Christinne, as she has not been the first and sadly will not be the last. According to the law the "victims" are the minors and their parents. I'm calling out not just to their parents, but to all parents. My questions to them is: " Where were YOU as parents all these years?!?!?! ". Let's not play the victim role and excuse our lack of involvement in our children's affairs by stating that so and so "betrayed" our trust ! This has happens many times over and over everywhere, by pastors, priests, famous celebrities, dear family members, etc. This is a big "wake up" call to not just the minors' parents, but ALL parents. The biggest mistake is to think it will not happen to your children. I am not saying to live in paranoia, but to monitor and know everything about your children. I'm raising boys as well and call me "old fashioned" but my boys ( teenagers) have never been to sleep overs or are not allowed to accept lavish gifts from anyone. Let's not be naive, down deep as parents we know that there is a price for everything, but often it is more convenient to "look the other way" . The victims that no one has talked about are is that women's family. Our prayers should not only be for the legal victims but for that woman's own children and husband. As far as the prison time, it will most likely be half time and her children will be able to interact with her.

She "agrees"? If she agrees, the time should be longer! Just doesn't sound like enough time for the crime. Is this pretty typical for male offenders with the same M.O.?

She is disgusting! I can't believe only 5 years. PLEASANTON D.A. SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF SUCH A DEAL! If she was a minority, you bet she would've gotten triple that amount. Leva it to Pleasanton Court to make deals with child molesters! Thank goodness her time is in state prison. The mothers there don't take kindly to molesters.

I heard that the court date for sentencing has been changed, can you find out if this is true? It was scheduled for March 25th in Hayward Court.
Kristofer Noceda (Editor) March 18, 2011 at 07:19 PM
Hi Gerry. Just checked Alameda County Inmate Locator (http://www.acgov.org/sheriff_app/) and she is still scheduled to be sentenced 9 a.m. March 25 Dept. 518 in Hayward.

I agree with you about the DA in Pleasanton. Totally worthless. Been trying to get them to look at an embezzlement matter for a year now, and despite a deposition transcript where the person ADMITS to stealing $150k to pay off a prior embezzlement charge, among other glaring evidence including a paper trail of money going from Company A into her bank account, deposition testimony from her admitting to taking it and not paying it back, Goodfellow (the DA in Pleasanton) won't prosecute due to "lack of evidence." Would love to know what "evidence" he thinks is actually lacking at this point.

Kristofer: Did she get sentenced? If so, what were the terms of her sentence? Thanks
Kristofer Noceda (Editor) March 25, 2011 at 07:05 PM
It was scheduled for 8:45 a.m. this morning but was pushed back to 2 p.m. We will have an update later this afternoon. Thanks

I have a hard time with all of this. If I hear one more crack from the idiots where I work about how the judge should have high fived the boys, got her number, and sent her home and let her husband deal with her I will vomit. She is a predator, plain and simple. I am a 45 year old male, was young and was a normal kid who chased girls but the damage here is nothing to be laughed at. There is a process by which we all grow into adulthood. Some of us start early, some later, but we all get there. Part of the process is developing relationships etc. that lead to being a grown up. This sort of interference by an adult could have damaging consequences on these kids. I know a lot of you are saying bs, you are happy for them, but think back. As a boy, I had to develop numerous relationships to get to this point. A lot of people, myself included ,found the one girl to go home with we knew would let us do whatever. PArt of growing up was realizing that I was scum for taking advantage, and the process leads you to learn how to be in a relationship. This woman circumvented all of the experiences these kids should have had. I am really curious why the husband is sticking around. I assume he is, as she took a longer sentence so her husband and kids would visit. If my wife did this I would not be visiting her, I would be in court seeing to it that she never came near my kids again. Maybe what she did was a mistake, but I don't want my kids learning from a mistake,

On 02/03/13 she hit her halfway mark incarcerated, hopefully she'll be released soon. The old argument "if this were a man" is BS. That's one major problem in society is trying to make everyone "the same." We are not the same, never have, never will She's doing (did in my opinion) time for her crimes. As a FYI, there are numerous laws being broken to this day, specifically sodomy laws. Why aren't we putting people (gays) in jail for that? Because someone says it's not really immoral. So the point is: We view Christine as a criminal, but who knows, maybe in the future we'll have a President, say someone like obama, who stumps for this very behavior.
Julia February 08, 2013 at 07:52 PM
It's clear to me that she is a pedophile and needs help in addition to serving her sentence. It's disgusting that an adult could ever be sexually attracted to a child, that is a mental illness. PERIOD
