Freddie/Alyssa Trenchard

Freddie Christian Trenchard (aka Alyssa Christine Trenchard), a violent male who identifies as a transgender woman, was convicted at Guernsey’s Royal Court in July 2023 of the rape of a 17 year old girl.

Media reports indicate that Judge Catherine Fooks told the jury beforehand that the defendant’s transgender status was not material to their deliberation as the defendant had been ‘biologically male at the time’ – and of course remains biologically male as human beings cannot change sex. She apparently then went on to say that its only relevance was the fact that the defendant had accused the victim of falsifying a complaint because she was transphobic. So, in fact, the defendant’s sex was entirely relevant not only because of the rapist’s attempt to smear his victim’s character, but because the charge was rape, defined in Guernsey as person A ‘intentionally penetrating, with his penis, the vagina, anus or mouth‘ of person B – i.e. a quintessentially male crime.

Reduxx reports that Trenchard confessed in a video on social media to becoming sexually aroused when someone calls him “miss,” the same term he requested to be addressed by during the trial. In fact the judged apologized to the defendant for describing him as a transgender male because he wishes to be referred to as a transgender “female”. Reduxx also reached out to Guernsey Police, who confirmed Trenchard was recorded as a “woman” at the time of his arrest, in accordance with his gender identity.

An attendee at the trial confirmed that, thankfully, the victim was not required to refer to her rapist as ‘she’ in court.

The jury unanimously convicted Trenchard after an hour’s deliberation. Despite being convicted of such a serious crime of sexual violence that carries a substantial custodial sentence, Trenchard was bailed until sentencing later in 2023.
