Kathleen Carpenter / Keith Thompson, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted at Nottingham Crown Court in January 2018 of two counts of indecently assaulting a child in the early 1990s.

The victim, a boy of 13 or 14 at the time, was understandably traumatised and told no one of the assaults for many years whereas Carpenter/Thompson reportedly “struggled to remember any such incident”.

Carpenter/Thompson, 59, was sentenced 32 months on one charge and 12 months to run concurrently for the second, ordered to sign the sex offenders’ register and be subject to a sexual harm prevention order for five years.
