New Jersey Trans Prisoner Who Impregnated 2 Inmates Moved to Men’s Facility

A transgender inmate was transferred from the only women’s prison in New Jersey after impregnating two female inmates.

Demi Minor, 27, has been transferred to the vulnerable housing unit at the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility, a prison for young adults ages 18 to 30.

Dan Sperrazza, a New Jersey Department of Corrections spokesman, confirmed that three trans women are housed in the youth facility’s vulnerable housing unit even if the prison’s general population houses only men. 

Minor’s removal from the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women came a year after the state reached a settlement with the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey to house transgender inmates based on their gender identity instead of their sex assigned at birth. 

The facility currently houses 27 transgender inmates, NJ Advance Media reported.  

“Decisions related to an incarcerated person’s housing are made within the parameters of the settlement agreement, which requires consideration of gender identity and the health and safety of the individual,” Sperrazza said.

Sperrazza confirmed that Minor is serving a 30-year prison sentence for manslaughter and impregnated fellow inmates this year following consensual sexual relationships.

Sperrazza added that even consensual sex between inmates is prohibited in the New Jersey correctional facilities.
