New Jersey prison officials have transferred a transgender female inmate who police say impregnated two other inmates at an all-women’s prison earlier this year.
Demi Minor, 27, was transferred to Garden State Youth Correctional Facility in Burlington County. Heres’ Demi before she “transitioned” to a female.
According to a post on the transperson Minor’s website, guards “forcibly” removed Minor from Edna Mahan prison and “beat her during the transfer to Garden State Youth Correctional Facility.”
Media Take Out confirmed with local authorities that the inmate was transferred last month. Dan Sperrazza, a Department of Corrections spokesman, told the media in a statement.
Sperrazza said “Demi” was moved to the “vulnerable” unit at the facility for teenagers and young adults age 21 and under. He said the inmate is “currently the only woman prisoner on the site.”
The DOC spokesman previously explained that the two female inmates got pregnant after having “consensual” sex with Demi, the transgender inmate.
“It appears the two women prisoners became pregnant from “consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person,” he said in April.
Edna Mahan is New Jersey’s only women’s prison. It currently houses 26 prisoners who identify as male-to-female transgender. The transgender inmates are allowed to commingle with the cis-gender inmates in the facility.
According to the corrections department, Minor is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter and is eligible for parole in 2037.
