Scottish Government question decision to send transgender rapist Isla Bryson to a female prison

Telegraph, 26 Jan 2023
Nicola Sturgeon is facing calls to intervene to remove a male-bodied transgender rapist “exploiting the system” from a women’s prison.

Isla Bryson, who was previously known as Adam Graham and transitioned only after being accused of rape, was convicted at the High Court in Glasgow on Tuesday.

Bryson was found guilty of raping one woman in Clydebank in 2016 and another in Drumchapel, Glasgow, in 2019. Jurors were told that Adam Graham was the defendant’s “dead name” and the judge addressed them as “Ms Bryson”.
