(LOS ANGELES) — A serial rapist is set to be released in California, a Santa Clara County judge ordered Friday.

Christopher Evans Hubbart, known as the “Pillowcase Rapist,” will be placed at a Palmdale residence within the next two months. The 63-year-old admitted to raping approximately 40 women between 1971 and 1982, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney.

Hubbart remained in custody of the Department of State Hospitals since his designation as a “sexually violent predator” in 1996. He earned his nickname from allegedly muffling his victims screams with pillowcases.

The move isn’t without restrictions, however. He’ll be monitored with a GPS ankle device for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will have to be accompanied by a supervisor each time he’s out in public for the first six months, among other conditions.
