Transgender Child Molester Gets Plea Deal in California After Bludgeoning Friend to Death

He has been accused of attacking at least two other young girls.

A transgender child molester in California has accepted a 15-year sentence as part of a plea deal for bludgeoning his friend to death with a rock.

“Hannah” Tubbs, formerly known as James Tubbs, 27, previously received a sweetheart deal after molesting a 10-year-old girl in a Los Angeles Denny’s restaurant bathroom.

He has been accused of attacking at least two other young girls.

In a phone call to someone from jail, Tubbs bragged about how District Attorney George Gascon’s policies led to him serving a short sentence and being kept off of the sex offender registry.

In April 2019, Tubbs beat his “friend” Michael Clark to death with a rock. The two were both part of a “survivalist transient group.”

According to a report from Fox News, “The 27-year-old, who was charged in Kern County with first-degree murder, threatening a witness, robbery and assault, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and lesser charges in exchange for a 15-year prison sentence Tuesday.”

“Tubbs began identifying as female only after being arrested in a cold case child sex assault investigation, in order to get placed with juvenile girls while awaiting trial, according to law enforcement sources,” the report added. “Tubbs, who was treated as a female in Los Angeles, was being held in the Kern County Jail’s men’s facility on $1 million bond. State correction officials will determine whether Tubbs serves the sentence with male or female inmates.”

After murdering Clark, Tubbs also threatened other “friends” demanding their silence.

Tubbs, who has a long history of violence and drug crimes, is scheduled to be sentenced on December 7.

“Tubbs was due to be paroled from state prison after serving a sentence for assault with a deadly weapon in Kern County in 2021 – but L.A. prosecutors asked for a custody transfer so that he could face justice in the 2014 sex assault of a 10-year-old girl in a Denny’s restaurant bathroom,” Fox reports. “However, under Gascon’s direction, the 2014 case remained in juvenile court because Tubbs was 17 at the time of the attack – just days from legal adulthood.”
