A transgender prisoner who got two fellow inmates pregnant at New Jersey’s only women’s prison has been moved to a men’s prison.
Demi Minor, who is serving a 30-year sentence for stabbing her former foster father to death, was moved from the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility to the Garden State Youth Correctional Facility in June.
According to report, Minor, 27, was misgendered and abused by guards during the transfer and was even placed on suicide watch after she tried to hang herself while she was being transferred to GSCF.
In a post on her Justice 4 Demi blog, Minor claimed that she was targeted by correctional officers, with one of them mocking her when she asked to be stripped searched by a woman. In a separate post, she claimed she was beaten during the transfer.
She said she was briefly held at New Jersey State Prison, where guards allegedly called her ‘a he’ over 30 times.
Minor’s case gained attention in April when the New Jersey Department of Corrections revealed that she had impregnated two fellow inmates at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility.
The inmate also said that while she was allowed to keep her make-up, she knows wearing it ‘is a death wish.’
‘I have accepted that I am in a male facility but I have not accepted nor will I ever agree to or accept that I am anything other than a woman who happens to be transgender,’ Minor wrote.
In a scathing blog post, Minor accused guards of mistreating her and threatening her.
