Today’s hot topic: The rapist let loose in a women’s prison


A FEMALE prisoner who was allegedly sexually assaulted by a male-bodied transgender inmate has launched a High Court action for a judicial review of government policy.

She says the convict, who is serving a sentence for the rape of a female, groped her in the prison toilets. She is challenging the lawfulness of the government decision to place trans-women prisoners convicted of sexual and violent offences against women in women’s prisons without, it is claimed, adequately protecting female prisoners.

One in 50 inmates in adult male prisons claims to be transgender or transsexual, according to HM Chief Inspector of Prisons.

Should female prisoners have to go to court to ensure their privacy and safety? Discuss!
