Jasmine Hill, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted at Truro Crown Court in February 2017 of inciting a child to perform sexual acts, breaching a sexual harm prevention order and possessing indecent images of a child.

Hill, 20, was sentenced  to four and a half years in a young offenders’ institute for the most serious charge of of inciting a child to perform sexual acts. For the other offences, Hill was given two six-month jail terms, also to run concurrently and a new Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) was imposed.

Hill targeted teenagers on Snapchat and WhatsApp and set up a fake Facebook account pretending to be a teenage girl in order to groom male children to perform sexual acts and send explicit images. The police found Hill to have breached a previous SHPO prohibiting such contact with male children when a mobile phone spot check was carried out.

Hill has two previous convictions for similar serious sexual offences against male children having been convicted as a juvenile of inciting a male child to sexual activity and voyeurism. Then in 2015, Hill received an 18 month suspended sentence for inciting a child to be involved in prostitution or pornography.

A psychiatric report stated Hill posed a significant risk of serious harm to young boys and the defence team submitted in mitigation that Hill had a personality disorder.

Coverage of Hill’s conviction made no mention of the fact that Hill self defines as transgender yet all media headlines referred to a woman perpetrating these crimes against children; e.g. the Mirror’s headline reads ‘Woman posed as teenage girl on Facebook to entice young boys to perform sex acts’.
