NJ Advance Media reports. The media company had reported in April that two women at the prison had become pregnant through consensual relationships with a trans prisoner, later identified as Minor (the state prohibits even consensual sexual relationships among prisoners).
She has now been transferred to a vulnerable inmates’ unit at Garden State Youth Correctional Facility, which houses young adults.
Minor is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter.The state had agreed to house most trans prisoners according to their gender identity and to provide gender-affirming care under a settlement it reached in June 2021 with a trans woman who sued.
This woman had said she was harassed and assaulted by both staff and fellow inmates when housed with male prisoners. The settlement required the state to keep the policy in place for at least a year.
