Andrew McNab/Chloe Thompson

Andrew McNab/Chloe Thompson, a violent male who identifies as a trans woman, was convicted at Teesside Crown Court of the sexual assault of a teenage girl in 2011 and sentenced to 12 months in prison. At the time, McNab appeared to blame the offending on being mentally scarred from Army service. The judge declined to impose the Sexual Harm Prevention Order proposed.

In December 2010, McNab was jailed for a year for affray after he threatened to shoot a former girlfriend and her new partner.

In May 2021, McNab/Thompson, 41, was convicted of breaching the conditions of a ten year notification requirement order – this had been imposed on conviction for sexual assault in 2011. The order had reportedly been breached 11 times since it was imposed.

Police had been called to McNab/Thompson’s address after concerns were raised by the landlord. While the officer was reviewing apps on McNab/Thompson’s mobile phone he discovered TikTok had been downloaded and accessed via a user name of Chloe Thompson – and that this alias (changed by deed poll) had not been reported to the police within the mandatory 3-day period.

The judge sentenced McNab/Thompson to a four month custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months, issued a 12 month community order and imposed 20 days of rehabilitation activity requirement days.

*Update: November 2021*

Thompson appeared in court charged with multiple sexual offences at Teesside Magistrates Court on 24 November 2021. Media reports indicate these charges relate to indecent exposure, masturbating in public and using a sex toy in a public place.

Teesside Live reports allegations that Thompson committed “a public nuisance by indecently exposing her [sic] penis to other members of the public, whilst masturbating from a property window” on 13 August 2021 and “using a sex toy on Wellesley Road, Middlesbrough, on the same date.”

Thompson pleaded not guilty and the trial was adjourned until 15 February 2022.
