Livermore woman faces 67 felony counts in sex abuse case

PLEASANTON -- A Livermore woman accused of having sex with two teenage boys was arraigned Monday on more than five dozen criminal charges.

Christine Shreeve Hubbs, 42, wiped tears from her face before her case was called in Judge Hugh Walker's Pleasanton courtroom. She faces 67 felony counts, including charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor and lewd acts on a child.

Hubbs did not enter a plea. She will return to court Monday.

Hubbs was arrested Thursday, a little more than a week after the mother of one of the boys reported possible illicit activity between her son and Hubbs. According to court documents, the mother found a nude photo of Hubbs on her son's cell phone.

According to court records, the boy told investigators that he and Hubbs were involved in sexual activity from December 2008 to January 2010, beginning when the 15-year-old was 14. During that investigation, officers learned of a second boy who said he had a sexual relationship with Hubbs from December until July. The second boy was 14 at the time.

The boys told Livermore police that they communicated with Hubbs via text message, and that Hubbs gave them gifts and money. Some of the incidents occurred outside Alameda County, according to court records.

According to her Facebook page, Hubbs is married to a Livermore dentist and has three children.

Her husband, Timothy, was in court Monday for his wife's appearance. He said he didn't want to talk about the case.

Jules Bonjour, Christine Hubbs' attorney, said he had a large amount of information to sift through. He asked that the media respect the family's privacy. In a separate case, Hubbs also faces five misdemeanor charges of driving recklessly in Livermore on June 29 while boys who were passengers in her Hummer shot Airsoft pistols out the window.

According to records, a bicyclist who said he was shot by the boys told police that he recognized Hubbs from her personalized license plate. She told investigators she was driving at the time and heard the boys pull the triggers. The boys in the car admitted to the shooting, but they said Hubbs did not try to stop them and that she had bought them the guns.

Hubbs is being held in lieu of $4.3 million bail at Santa Rita jail in Dublin.


Just the same way as the media respects the privacy of families of men accused of sexual crimes.

Can you picture this story being written about a man ... the toys, cruisin' around the neighborhood, etc.? Can you even picture this written about an african-american woman, an asian-american woman or a latina?
