Trans inmate impregnates two other prisoners in women’s prison
Demi Minor, 27, is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter
A transgender inmate has impregnated two other prisoners in a women’s prison.
Demi Minor, 27, who is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter, was at Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, New Jersey, US when the incidents took place.
According to the states’ department of corrections, the two women had “consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person.”
Minor is reportedly one of 27 transgender women who were at the prison after New Jersey announced a new policy allowing prisoners to be housed according to the sex they identify themselves as last year.
Minor has since been transferred to another prison following the incident.
While the New Jersey corrections department has confirmed it would be reviewing its regulations.
It said that the review was in place with the intention of “implementing minor modifications.”
The department added that decisions “are made within the parameters of the settlement agreement which requires consideration of gender identity and the health and safety of the individual”.
Minor has hit out at the treatment given out by New Jersey’s prison service in a blog.
Minor said: “I was transferred to New Jersey State Prison, where guards continued to call me, he and him.
“I was called he and him well over 30 times, this has not happened to me in years being referred to primarily as a man.
“When I arrived at Trenton state prison several guards strip searched me and placed me in the infirmary on constant watch.”
“I don’t think DOC realises the psychological damage that has been done from moving me out of a women’s prison to a male facility, it’s harsh and, I don’t know what it is like to live as a man, and I refuse to ever revert back to such habits or behaviour.”
