Transgender Child Molester Charged with Murder

On Tuesday, a man who identifies as a woman, and has a record of child molestation, was formally charged with murder in California.

As the New York Post reports, 26-year-old James Tubbs, who now goes by the name Hannah, had previously pled guilty in January to sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a Denny’s bathroom in Palmdale, California. The crime took place in 2014, when Tubbs was 17.

At the time, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon, a far-left radical funded by George Soros, refused to move the case out of juvenile court, insisting that Tubbs be charged as a minor. As a result, the judge in the case ultimately sentenced Tubbs to two years in a youth treatment facility.

But Tubbs has now been charged with murder in relation to a robbery in Kern County on April 21st, 2019, during which a man named Michael Clark was killed. Appearing in court on Tuesday before Kern County Superior Court Judge David Zuffa, Tubbs pleaded not guilty to the charges of second-degree murder and robbery. Tubbs was charged last week, and he is currently being held on a bail of $1 million.

In the prior molestation case, Tubbs repeatedly bragged about his actions and his light sentence while in custody, along with vulgar comments about his victim. Tubbs already had a criminal history prior to the sexual assault, which strengthened the argument in favor of a heavier sentence. Even Gascon was eventually forced to admit that the sentence had been too light for Tubbs.

In a phone call with his father, Tubbs noted that he wouldn’t have to register as a sex offender because he was charged in a juvenile court, saying “it’s a strike, but they’re gonna plead, I’m going to plead out to them and plead guilty.”

Now facing a recall election over his soft-on-crime policies, Gascon said, in reference to Tubbs’ molestation case, that “while for most people several years of jail time is adequate, it may not be for [Mr.] Tubbs.”

“If we knew about [his] disregard for the harm [he] caused,” Gascon continued, “we would have handled this case differently.”
