Paul Banfield

Paul Banfield, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted of the sexual assault of a 17 yr old girl in 2015.

Banfield, 44, was sentenced at Shrewsbury Crown Court to 18 weeks in prison which was suspended for two years. A restraining order was also imposed banning the defendant from Telford town centre during certain hours in school term-time.

The assault was apparently the third that Banfield had committed and the police had growing concerns for the risk posed to the community.

Banfield breached the restraining order in 2016 and was sentenced to a 3 year community order. The judge also told Banfield to attend sessions to help him cut back on his drinking.
