The attorney who prosecuted a 26-year-old trans child molester has been suspended by Los Angeles D.A. George Gascon. Hannah Tubbs, the convicted child molester, only identified as a woman after DNA evidence linked “her” to a previous crime, according to law enforcement sources.
Shea Sanna, who had been the lead prosecutor for part of the case, was suspended after being accused of misgendering and "deadnaming" Tubbs, who, speaking of deadnaming, is now also accused of beating Michael Clark to death with a rock in a wooded area in Kern County.
Unbelievable. At least I wish it was.
Perhaps if the Unabomber had identified as a female and a prosecutor had subsequently “misgendered” and/or “deadnamed” him his case would have been thrown out and the guilty prosecutor disbarred.
Sanna claims jailhouse phone calls show that Tubbs was attempting to use gender identity to game the justice system. This accusation apparently made others in Gascon's office uncomfortable, which led to his suspension.
Sanna, however, stated: "I was suspended for speaking out against the Gascón Administration. Misgendering Tubbs while informing them that they were being played is just their excuse for the suspension."
Hannah Tubbs has a lengthy criminal history in California-- and Idaho-- under “her” former name, James Tubbs, and allegedly began identifying as female after being arrested in connection with a 2014 child molestation case in which “she” pleaded guilty to attacking a 10-year-old girl in a Denny's bathroom stall. Gascon's office sought to have Tubbs, now 27, placed in a juvenile facility because “she” committed that crime prior to her 18th birthday.
Sanna says that, shortly after sending a tweet critical of former Gascon advisor Alisa Blair’s handling of a different case, he discovered he was the subject of a complaint filed on Blair’s behalf. He told Fox News Digital, "So it wasn’t when I first ‘misgendered’ Tubbs. She did it in retaliation. Part of it, the reason why I’m suspended, is because I called out Tubbs to the administration and said I have recordings of him making up the name, gaming the system, joking about it and the date that it was made up. And I had reports where he's referring to himself as a ‘grown ass man.’" Not a “trans woman.”
Fox News Digital had previously obtained jailhouse recordings of Tubbs explicitly admitting that it was wrong to attack a little girl, but gloating over the light punishment he received anyway. “She” reportedly boasted that nothing would happen to “her” after “she” pleaded guilty, due to the well-known leniency with which Gascon treats juvenile defendants. Tubbs even laughed at the possibility that “she” wouldn’t have to go back to prison or even register as a sex offender.
(The Fox News story itself, from which I gleaned much of the information informing this post, dutifully referred to the convicted child molester, accused murderer, and alleged “trans woman,” as “her.” I can’t do that. Not in this case, anyway. Not without quotation marks to highlight the absurdity.)
