How The Justice System Is Failing True Victims And Helping Trans-Identified Paedophiles and Sex Offenders Walk Free
New report suggests there is institutional discrimination against trans-identified individuals, only its positive discrimination.
In 2010, prosecutors successfully convicted Jan Krause (real name not known) for harassment. Reports state she conducted a “cold war” of surveillance against her neighbours, a nurse with three children - posting recordings of them on YouTube, crashing into their cars and erecting a roof-mounted device which emitted a high-pitched whine in their direction.
According to the mother’s testimony, she caught Krause sitting outside dressed all in black and wearing a balaclava while taking notes about what the family were doing one Christmas morning.
Despite a guilty verdict, the judge presiding over his case, District Judge Sanders, spared Krause from jail, warning that Krause could be in danger if he was placed in either a male or a female prison. He said, “you are a particularly vulnerable person in a prison environment”.
In 2015, police arrested a man named Clive Bundy after they discovered images of his young daughter, Ceri-Lee, circulating online. It soon emerged that Bundy had been trading them with other paedophiles. After prosecutors charged him in 2016, he confessed to several counts of sexual activity with Ceri-Lee, including inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and distributing indecent images. He was sentenced to 15 years.
However, between his jailing in 2016 to 2021, Bundy discovered he wasn’t a man after all but a woman in the wrong body - Clive Bundy was no more, instead he was now Claire Fox.
With his new identity recognised, authorities released Bundy and settled him into a tiny market town on the Welsh borders. He served just seven years of the 15 sentenced.
In 2020, a man by the name of “Tanya Howes” (court documents identified him as female and referred him by female pronouns) was caught with dozens of child sexual abuse files. 39 were considered ‘Category A’ - the most serious classification for child pornography. This usually merits jail time between six months and three years (shouldn’t it be more like 5-10?).
Yet, amongst the fallout from the Adam Graham controversy, Howes was somehow spared jail. Magistrates suspended his 12-month jail term (12 months for child porn?), following lengthy delays while authorities debated whether he should be housed in a male or female prison.
Another exemplar is the case of Peter Selby. In 2019, police caught trans-identified Selby harbouring more than 2,413 Category A child sex abuse images, 2,127 Category B and 120,864 Category C. Some involved children as young as three.
However, because Selby had sought counselling since his arrest and had expressed anxiety as a “trans-woman”, the judge decided to suspend his 14-month prison sentence (again, 14 months?) for two years. The judge cited a pre-sentence report as further reason, which described Selby as “manageable in the community”. This is despite the same judge previously stating that no one would seek child sexual abuse media “unless they have a sexual interest in children to start with,”.
In April 2022, a former British soldier Andrew McNab, also known as “Chloe Thompson”, was caught rubbing himself on a public wheelie bin before using a sex toy in an alley in Middlesbrough, Teesside. Later that day, witnesses saw McNab expose himself and thrust his naked body against a window in front of three children.
McNab pleaded “trans” a few years prior, which the judge mentioned when announcing his decision to suspend his custodial sentence. The judge is on the record stating: “The only thing I need to find out is whether it (jail term) could be suspended, given the challenges you faced and the time”. McNab’s lawyer revealed the judge was indeed referencing his client’s “gender identity”.
The latest case involves one Dominic Carter, now going by “Sophie”. He admitted guilt for possessing indecent images of children in 2021. Last month, he appeared in court donning all pink attire, including a neat little pink hair band to signal his newfound transgender identity between his arrest and court appearance.
Carter's lawyer pointed to childhood trauma, long-term alcohol abuse, and mental health struggles while requesting a suspended jail term. Despite having five previous convictions, Carter’s request was granted, resulting in a six-month prison sentence being suspended for 18 months.
Over the last 6 years, transgender prisoners in England and Wales have more than quadrupled. Would these numbers be dramatically higher if the justice system refused to assign victimhood status to trans-identifed paedophiles and sex offenders?
Perhaps the problem lies as much with the system as the soft judges overseeing it... Food for thought.
