David Harris

David John Harris, a violent male transvestite, has been repeatedly jailed for sexual assaults on young women and breaching the terms of a Sexual Offences Protection Order (SOPO).

In 1998, Harris sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman as she walked home from a nightclub. He later attacked a 19-year-old woman as she walked home from the same club. He was wearing women’s clothing when committing both sexual assaults.

Under the terms of the SOPO imposed in 2004, he was banned from wearing any female clothing in a vehicle or in a public place between 9pm and 6am in summer or between 6pm and 7am in the winter. He breached this SOPO in 2005, 2006 and 2009 and received prison sentences of 30 months, two years and 18 months respectively.

In June 2012, he broke the order for a fifth time when his neighbour was alarmed to see him outside their home dressed as a woman in a knee-length red dress and blonde wig at 3am and standing next to his black Fiat Uno – which had an array of bras hanging from the roof bars and mirrors. Faced with jailing Harris for four to five years or deferring sentence to see if he will tackle his fetish, Judge Jamie Tabor deferred sentencing for six months with an 8pm-6am curfew and told Harris to ‘lower the drawbridge on your psyche’ so he can be helped with his problems.
