Convicted Sex Offender Laughs at Weak Sentence from Soros-Backed George Gascon
Gascon faced backlash for prosecuting Tubbs as a juvenile
Hannah Tubbs, the 26-year-old sex offender who was sentenced to two years in juvenile prison due to the lenient policies of George Soros-backed Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, found the proposed soft "punishment" amusing.
As Neon Nettle previously reported:
A Los Angeles County judge on Thursday sentenced 26-year-old “Hannah” Tubbs after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting the young child in 2014. Before issuing the sentence, Judge Mario Barrera blasted “woke” District Attorney George Gascon for tying his hands on the punishment.
Gascón, installed by far-left billionaire George Soros, refused to prosecute the repeat offender as an adult, preventing the court from sending the pedophile to a non-juvenile prison.
Gascón faced backlash for prosecuting Tubbs as a juvenile because the crime occurred just before Tubbs’s 18th birthday.
Gascón argued he was honoring a campaign promise not to prosecute juveniles as adults.
The DA won in 2020 with the aid of millions of dollars from Soros, along with endorsements from Democrats up and down the state, including L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.
Tubbs was overheard on a recorded call from jail gloating about the impending light sentence, as Fox News reported:
[Tubbs] boasted that nothing would happen to her after she pleaded guilty due to Democrat District Attorney George Gascon’s policies and laughed that she won’t have to go back to prison or register as a sex offender.
[Tubbs] also made explicit remarks about the victim that is unfit to print.
“I’m gonna plead out to it, plead guilty,” Tubbs says in one recording.
“They’re gonna stick me on probation, and it’s gonna be dropped, it’s gonna be done, I won’t have to register, won’t have to do nothing.”
Gascón recently backed off from some of his controversial policies amid growing public outcry about lenient sentences, rising crime, and a newly-launched effort to force a recall election.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Gascón is marking a major shift in his all-or-nothing stances on specific criminal justice reform issues.
According to documents reviewed by The Times, committees will be created to evaluate “extraordinary” cases where a defendant’s conduct might require harsher penalties than those allowed under Gascón’s policies.
In cases involving juvenile defendants, that could mean transferring their cases to adult court.
In murder cases, that means prosecutors can now seek to file special circumstance allegations against a defendant in certain situations — such as killing a police officer who is on duty or killing a witness — making them eligible for a maximum sentence of life without parole.
