Video: ‘Hummer mom,” Christine Shreeve Hubbs, cries in court, husband talks to reporters
Christine Shreeve Hubbs, the 42-year-old Livermore, California, woman who is charged with having sex with two teenage boys was in court again this week. She was known in the neighborhood as the “Hummer mom” because she often took neighborhood kids in her 2006 black Hummer.
Hubbs briefly appeared in Alameda County Superior Court in Pleasanton on Monday but did not enter a plea. The case was continued until Friday, September 3. Hubbs’ lawyer, Jules Bonjour, said he is waiting to receive additional information about her case. He told reporters that Hubbs’ husband, prominent dentist Tim Hubbs, is standing by his wife.
Tim Hubbs spoke briefly to reporters outside court.
“No comments right now,” he said. “My lawyer’s going to be taking care of all that because of all the evidence and stuff.”
Tim Hubbs added, “We’re doing okay. We’re just taking it one day at a time. My kids are hanging tough though, just telling you that.” (see video from KNTV below.)
Hubbs is being held in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, California, about a 45 minute drive southeast of San Francisco.
The case first came to the attention of Livermore police on July 27 after finding a nude photo of Hubbs on one of the boys’ cell phone. The boy said he first began having sex with Hubbs in December 2008 when he was 14. During their investigation, police say they learned of a second victim who is now 14, who began having sex with Hubbs in December 2009 and it continued through last month. Police said Hubbs had sex with the boys in her Hummer and in hotel rooms in various locations in Livermore and Alameda County.
Hubbs is being charged with 67 felony counts of sexual assault, including oral copulation, lewd act on a child, and exhibition of lewd material to a minor. Police say she had a sexual relationship with two boys under 15.
She is in custody in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, California, on $4.3 million bail.
in a separate case, Hubbs is being charged with four counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and one count of discharge of a BB gun.
On June 29, police say a bicyclist reported being shot by an Airsoft projectile by boys from Hubbs’ Hummer.
