From the Pleasanton Weekly on August 12, 2010:

“A woman arrested last Thursday for having sex with two boys is expected to enter a plea Monday in Alameda County Superior Court in Pleasanton on 67 felony charges.

Christine Shreeve Hubbs, 42, a Livermore mother, is being held in Santa Rita Jail on $4.3 million bail. She is accused of sexual assaults on two boys which police said began in December 2008 and continued since then, police said.

She began making advances on one of the boys when he was 14 and dating her daughter, also 14, officials said.

The charges include counts of oral copulation, lewd acts on a child, and exhibition of lewd material to a minor.

Hubbs allegedly sent messages and nude pictures of herself to the boys from her cell phone. After contacting the victims, she would then allegedly drive them in her black 2006 Hummer H2 to different locations in Livermore and have sex with them, police said.

She also faces charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor; police allege she let a group of boys shoot a plastic pellet gun from her car, Livermore police Lt. Matt Sarsfield said. Court records show Hubbs drove boys, ages 9-14 around Livermore on June 29, hitting speeds of up to 60 mph. The boys shot Airsoft guns — purchased for them by Hubbs — and hit a youngster on a bicycle, according to court records, which also say Hubbs did nothing to stop them.

That information came to police attention while investigating the alleged sexual assaults by Hubbs. No one was seriously injured by the plastic pellets, and Sarsfield said none of the boys in the car has come forward as a victim in the sexual assault case.

    Hubbs has been married for about 20 years to her husband Timothy, a dentist, and has three children, according to her Facebook and MySpace pages. More than half of the 36 friends on MySpace have pages displaying ages 18 or younger.

    Hubbs' Facebook page says she works in the dental office and that she "taxi(s) kids around after school."

    Police began their investigation into sexual assault charges after receiving a tip from someone connected to Hubbs. Both victims are cooperating with the investigation, Sarsfield said. The first victim was contacted after police received the tip. The second victim came forward voluntarily a few days later, he said.

    Police say Hubbs provided the victims with Visa gift cards, dinners at restaurants and video game consoles.

    Hubbs hired a lawyer last week after learning of the investigation, Sarsfield said."

    From the Pleasanton Weekly on February 27, 2011:

    "The Livermore woman originally charged with 67 counts of having sex with two underage boys has reached a plea deal that dismissed all but four of the charges.

    Christine Shreeve Hubbs, 42, pleaded no contest Thursday to four felony charges: unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor more than three years younger, lewd acts with a child under 14, oral copulation with a minor and oral copulation with a minor more than 10 years younger, according to Alameda County Court spokeswoman Teresa Drenick.

    Hubbs will serve three years on the first count, and 8 months each on the remaining three, Drenick said in an email. In addition, Hubbs will have to register as a sex offender -- a lifetime requirement, according to Drenick -- and will have to pay restitution, fines and court costs.

    In addition to dropping the felony charges, all misdemeanor counts against Hubbs were dismissed, Drenick said.

    Hubbs, who has a husband and three children, was arrested on Aug. 5, a little more than a week after the mother of one of the victims reported possible illicit activity between her son and Hubbs.

    Hubbs allegedly sent messages and nude pictures of herself to the boys from her cell phone. After contacting the victims, she would then allegedly drive them in her black 2006 Hummer H2 to different locations in Livermore and have sex with them, police said after she was arrested.

    According to Livermore police, both boys were 14 years old when Hubbs began having sexual relationships with them.

    Her official sentencing is set for March 25."
