Female Inmate Details Alleged Assault From Trans-Identified Male Transfer
A New Jersey woman incarcerated at a state women’s correctional facility alleges a male transfer who identifies as female assaulted her after several instances of sexual harassment.
Shakira Reed, an inmate at New Jersey’s Edna Mahan Correctional Facility for Women, told Reduxx in an exclusive report that a trans-identifying male named Jermain Gibson allegedly repeatedly punched Reed in the head, resulting in a broken nose and two black eyes in a scene that witnesses described left “blood everywhere.”
“I was attacked because I didn’t want to have sex with him,” Reed told Reduxx.
Prison authorities transferred Reed to Hunterdon Medical Center, where she received medical care before returning to the correctional facility’s on-site hospital unit. Following the assault, authorities punished both Gibson and Reed in holding cells in a 90-day “lockup” away from other inmates.
Reed said the assault occurred after weeks of sexual harassment from Gibson, including the inmate exposing himself to her as she walked past his cell. She reported the incident to authorities but said Gibson was not punished. (Read more from “Female Inmate Details Alleged Assault From Trans-Identified Male Transfer” HERE)
