EXCLUSIVE: Hannah Tubbs, the 26-year-old Californian trans child molester sentenced to a juvenile facility for assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a bathroom in 2014, has been charged with molesting an even younger girl a year earlier.

Explicit court documents obtained by Fox News Digital show Tubbs, then using the surname James, was accused of sexually assaulting a four-year-old girl in a California library in August 2013 while her mother was browsing through books “just a few go further”.

Hannah Tubbs began identifying as female after being arrested last year in connection with a child molestation case in 2014, prosecutors say.

The alleged attack inside the Northeast Bakersfield Library took place near locked bathrooms. The victim told police she escaped when Tubbs went to get a bathroom key, and she said Tubbs exposed himself and touched her. The girl told the police that he ordered her, “Do it.”

She was screaming and “crying hysterically” and pointing at her mouth and private parts when she found her mother, according to the documents.

The girl and her mother identified Tubbs, dressed in a ripped black shirt and shorts with blonde hair, as the suspect when responding officers arrived.

Bakersfield police did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Tubbs reached a plea deal in the 2014 assault case after Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s office refused to transfer him to adult court last year – a development that has caused outrage over the lenient sentence.

Following the 2014 assault case, explicit recordings from the Los Angeles prison emerged in February showing Tubbs gloating over the light sentence she received for the 2014 case, which involved a victim of 10-year-old assaulted in a Denny’s bathroom.


She bragged that nothing would happen to her after pleading guilty because of Democrat Gascon politics and laughed that she wouldn’t have to go back to jail or register as a sex offender. She also made explicit remarks about the victim that cannot be printed and asked her father to start referring to her with female pronouns.

“So now they’re going to put me with other trannies who have seen their case like mine or a transexual like me who has a case like mine,” Tubbs says. “So when you come to court, make sure you call me after her.”

Tubbs began identifying as female after being arrested last year, prosecutors say.

She was sentenced to two years in a juvenile facility because the case remained in juvenile court, following one of the prosecutor’s first-day progressive guidelines barring ‘children’ from being tried as adults. . She could serve as little as six months and will not have to register as a sex offender.

At one of Tubbs’ hearings, a representative for the AD read the victim’s impact statement from 2014, which said in part, “I look back on that day more often than I would like, and it makes me makes you sick.”

“New Year’s Day 2014,” she continued. “My family hardly ever goes out for New Years, but my brother wanted to do something nice for the family and treat us to breakfast at Denny’s…it didn’t end well at all.”

In the eight years since the attack, she has not been able to live her life as before, she said.

“Life has become more difficult,” she explained. “It put my brother and I into therapy, not just for my well-being, but because he felt awful that he couldn’t do anything to stop what happened.”

For years she felt watched, in danger and the “constant reminder of her vulnerability”. She even felt uncomfortable around male teachers, family and friends.

“These people are close to my heart and I can’t even feel comfortable around them,” she said. “It’s an awful feeling.”

“Then there are the strangers of the world I pass through,” she added. “I peek out and can’t help but think there’s some bad intention behind those eyes. So I stay inside.”

Gascon has since backtracked on some of his controversial guidelines, admitting some charges should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.

“Like any responsible office, we learn as we go, take feedback from the community, and make adjustments as needed based on our experiences and the complex nature of this work,” he said in February, adding that “a small number of cases” require flexibility denied to his prosecutors under his edicts.


“Specifically, we learned a lot from the Hannah Tubbs case about the need for a political safety valve,” he added.

He also admitted that Tubbs continued after the 2014 attack to commit other offenses – including one in which DNA evidence linked her to the attack on Denny.

Gascon’s office did not immediately respond to questions about the 2013 case. The embattled DA is currently facing its second recall push in less than two years on the job.
