Golden Valley counselor's pre-trial hearing continued

The attorney for Roselyn Hubbell appeared at Newhall Municipal Court Monday requesting a continuation of the pre-trial hearing for the former Golden Valley High School counselor. The case was continued until Aug. 19.

Hubbell has pleaded not guilty to charges of one misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child under the age of 18. The counselor was arrested June 10 while attempting to check into a hotel with a teen boy. She is also being investigated for an inappropriate relationship with another minor.

"Usually the defense needs some time to look at the case - it's a standard procedure," said Detective David Wing of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Special Victim's Bureau. "If it goes to trial, they will have 30 days after (Aug. 19) to schedule a date."

Hubbell, 33, was placed on leave from Golden Valley High in April after allegations of inappropriate relationships with two students came under investigation, and she resigned her position in May.

If found guilty, she faces a maximum sentence of one year in county jail and a fine of $5,000, according to Gibbons.

She was arrested June 10 on felony charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child endangerment - charges that were later dropped to the misdemeanor level. The boy was also arrested for cocaine possession.
