He committed the crime when he was 17. If he was still 17, this would be a different story. The case Is furthermore complicated by his different gender identification.

Absolutely ridiculous. The decision makers should be ASHAMED of themselves. Having experience working with incarerated youth in LA County, I agree there needs to be reform, but this is absolutely ridiculous. Gilbert36012861 Only 2 years, and in JUVY, not actual prison. So his punishment for molesting a minor girl is to now to be allowed to molest MORE minor girls!… Couples things: - Hannah’s a man - He deserves at least 10 years in MEN’s prison where they should eat him alive - California is evil

Had this Guy committed these crimes against my kids this wouldn’t b the topic today, He wouldntve made it 2prison, rehab, etc. if He commits another crime in the facility George Gascon should be held liable and charged accordingly. There’s only 1 cure for things like this guy. Defund the police and courts judges, our leaders support lawlessness and all kinds of homeless criminals, New york for one is criminal friendly no punishment for minor offenses, we will wait and watch them commit more serious crimes before we even try to discipline them.

Tf kinda shit going on there That little fck would be murdered in prison, so juvi is probably right,, but they are sending HIM, a molester of girls, to a JUVINELE GIRL DETENTION CENTER!!!!! Pray to God people don't go vigilante. Pray GeorgeGascon is recalled and disbarred. California is a mess. Just 2 years?!

The second effort to recall embattled Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon was officially approved by the Los Angeles County Registrar on Thursday. This criminal is likely going to be extradited to other jurisdictions to do time. I ask what took so long for the law to arrest and try the person in court. Gascon is not the whole problem but the county legal system failed to do its job over 10 years ago when the crime happened.

Leo, this is tripe. So they're going to put a child molester in a cell with children?! Meanwhile in Texas… GeorgeGascon must go Wow! fireDA Damn you again Gascon LADAOffice Gascon suuuuucks

Hannah Tubbs, who identifies as a transgender female, has a lengthy criminal record including violent crimes in multiple states. A DNA match in 2019 linked Tubbs to a sexual assault at a Denny's restaurant in Palmdale that occurred in 2014. Tubbs admitted to the sexual assault and said it happened in the restaurant's bathroom. The violent crime happened just before her 18th birthday and Tubbs remained free of charges until the DNA match. The case was prosecuted in juvenile court and was not transferred to adult court due to Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón's policy that states juveniles won't be prosecuted as adults. A juvenile judge sentenced Tubbs to two years in a juvenile facility. On Thursday, prosecutors argued in court for the judge to transfer the 26-year-old to an adult jail, saying in their opinion, the law gives the judge that authority. "In crystal clear terminology provides this court with the authority to order a transfer of an individual to sheriff's custody, or to a county jail facility, after that individual has turned 19 years of age," said a prosecutor during court. After hearing arguments, the judge stated that essentially, under current legislation, a person who commits a crime as a juvenile and is jailed in a juvenile facility once they turn 19, the court has no authority to transfer that person to an adult facility. "This court will not disregard what the legislature has put onto it as a limitation," said the judge. Since the case remained in juvenile court, Tubbs will not be required to register as a sex offender. Tubbs could have been sentenced to almost a decade in prison if she was tried and convicted as an adult. "[She's]every parent's worst nightmare," said L.A. County Deputy District Attorney Shea Sanna."If your kid goes to the bathroom, then you shouldn't have to worry about them being attacked." Meanwhile, L.A. County Supervisor Kathryn Barger issued the following statement in response to Thursday's placement hearing: "The outcome of the Tubbs case is unsatisfactory. Judge Barrera's hands were tied today - due to the fact that the DA's office failed to file a motion to transfer Tubbs to adult criminal court, which is where she rightly belongs. Instead, we're left with a 26 year-old individual sentenced to two years in a juvenile facility in isolation, separated by sight and sound from the other juveniles. To carry out justice, all of the oars in the criminal justice system must be rowing in the same direction. Today, that simply didn't happen." Eyewitness News asked Gascón for context on the case, to which his office pointed to a letter he sent Barger last week, addressing that Tubbs has been tried as an adult in several other cases, hence how they found the DNA. "However, in subsequent cases, Tubbs legally was an adult. Other jurisdictions had no other choice. Where I do agree with your assertion is that Tubbs likely will not face punishment proportionate to the victim's trauma," the D.A.'s letter to Barger said. The victim did not want to be in court or see Tubbs, but she wrote a letter that said in part: "I live in fear most of the time. And although it's something that I tried to tell myself isn't my fault, I could never truly believe it. I feel that I'm to blame somehow, when I know deep down that isn't the case. "I hope, after all this comes to an end, my attacker gets the punishment he deserves for attacking a child with no problem and I can finally get on with my life."
