Alan/Alannah Morgan

Alan/Alannah Morgan, a violent male who identifies as a transgender woman, was convicted at Dundee Sheriff Court in April 2022 of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner.

Morgan, 50, was arrested in March 2022 after behaving violently outside a hostel in Dundee, hurling a skateboard and shouting and swearing at staff. In the police van, the defendant continued to behave violently and exposed their genitals and buttocks – this was later argued by Morgan’s solicitor as ‘not a sexual act’ but ‘a demonstration’ during an argument over gender.

Media coverage describes Morgan as appearing on court rolls and also being known as Alan.  Despite this indicating that the defendant does not have a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC), Morgan was held on remand at HMP Cornton Vale (a women’s prison) prior to appearing in court to admit the offence.

The report in The Courier describes Morgan as ‘a woman’ and uses female pronouns throughout.
