Protecting Children


Increasingly more and women and children are entering into therapy reporting childhood sexual abuse, rape, and molestation that is now affecting them as adults. When I hear cases where sexual predators are walking away from the consequences they SHOULD face for the crimes they commit, it makes me very angry to say the least.


Recently, I learned that a 26-year-old California man was convicted of molesting a 10-year-old girl 8 years ago (he was 17 at the time), will now serve out his two-year sentence in a female juvenile facility because he now identifies as a woman.


According to Vancouver Times news article dated Jan 28, 2022, "James Tubbs was 17 when he grabbed the child by the neck, shoved her into a school bathroom stall, and sexually molested her." DNA test analysis only recently linked Tubbs to the assault which took place eight years ago. California District Attorney George Gascón "refused to try [Tubbs] as adult” and instead decided to try Tubbs as a minor. Tubbs was sentenced to the maximum available for minors, a sentence of two years. The article goes on to say, “Tubbs began identifying as female ( after being taken into custody. She now identifies as Hannah Tubbs.


Additionally, because of recent changes to California laws, the article continues, "Tubbs will not have to register as a sex offender, will not spend any time in county jail or state prison, will be 26 and housed with juveniles for a very short period of time, and will be released with no probation or parole monitoring,” Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami concluded, “The victims will get no justice. The public will get no safety.”


Tubbs will not have to register as a sex offender on the Megan's Law website which is the public domain for searching for registered sex offers (https://www.meganslaw.ca.gov/). The Megan's Law website states, "This website provides information on registered sex offenders pursuant to California Penal Code § 290.46 so that members of the public can better protect themselves and their families."


All I can say to parents everywhere is that the protection of your children is up to you.
