A transgender inmate has been accused of sexually assaulting four female inmates following a transfer to a women’s prison, despite not having had had reassignment surgery.

The first attack took place within days of the transfer to New Hall jail in Wakefield, West Yorkshire according to reports.

The prisoner, who has been living as a woman for over two years, was caught ‘visibly aroused’ whilst carrying out the assault at the high-security complex.

The victim of the assault, who became friends with the prisoner, claims she could see the prisoners ‘erect penis’ at the time of the assault.

According to the DM: There are also claims the prisoner made inappropriate comments about oral sex to another prisoner, while a third says she was also attacked and fourth claims she was kissed on the neck by the transgender inmate.

The transgender prisoner has now been sent to a Category B men’s jail in a case that will reignite the debate over whether such prisoners should be sent to women’s jails prior to gender reassignment surgery.

The recent figures indicate there were 125 transgender prisoners in England and Wales up to the end of March 2017, an increase from 70 a year earlier.

Currently, transgender women can only legally change their gender on their birth certificate if they have been medically diagnosed with gender dysphoria, and have lived as a woman for two years.

Judges deciding whether to send transgender prisoners to male or female prisons often use this as a deciding factor.

Transgender inmates also benefit from greater freedom in terms of dress code and can shower and wash clothes in private.

It comes following a significant spike in the number of transgender inmates, prompting prison authorities to issue new regulations concerning their treatment.

Transgender prisoners first won the right to have gender surgery in 1999.
