2014 Convictions

Convictions of males (ie individuals who identify as transgender women or who cross-dress)

Note that many local news sites delete their archive after approx. 1-2 years meaning that reporting of many convictions will be unavailable online and difficult to locate retrospectively. Compared to convictions archived by this site in real time from 2016 onwards, these convictions are therefore likely to be a fraction of those that occurred.

* indicates individual transitioned in prison after receiving a long sentence for serious violent/sexual offending

Murder / Attempted murder: 1

Melissa Young: murder of neighbour, Alan Williamson

 

Sexual offences: 8 (5 with child victims, 3 with adult victims)

(Note that if 1% of the population is transgender, for trans-identified males to have similar sexual offending rates as women, at least 800 women would have to have been convicted of a sexual offence in 2014. MoJ figures for England & Wales for the past decade consistently show approx. 100 women are convicted of a sexual offence annually – i.e. the convictions listed below indicate male pattern sexual offending, not female)
