Rapist trans woman admits sexually abusing fellow inmates at all-female jail

A transgender prisoner has pleaded guilty to two sexual assaults against female prisoners.

Karen White, who was born a man but identifies as a woman, has confessed to two counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield – an all-female jail.

The assaults took place between September and November 2017, Leeds Crown Court heard.

Details of the charges emerged during a hearing in which she also pleaded guilty to one historical count of rape.

Addressing the White, judge Christopher Batty said: ‘I want a full pre-sentence report made.

‘I shall get a full sentence report for the issue of dangerness. I will see you on the 11th of October.

‘We will then see the length the sentence will be. I am going to have you assessed to see if you are a danger. I may make conclusions from failure to comply.’

She had previously admitted two other counts of rape and one count of grievous bodily harm – all offences which took place prior to being in prison.

Ministry of Justice (MoJ) guidance says in the ‘great majority’ of cases transgender prisoners are allowed to ‘experience the system’ in the gender in which they identify.
