A transgender woman is suing the District of Columbia over her incarceration in a men’s unit.

Sunday Hinton sued the District on Tuesday over her housing at the Central Detention Facility (CDF), which is a men’s facility, solely based on anatomy. The complaint states that Hinton is “at risk of imminent harm.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The suit was announced by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of DC, which is representing her along with D.C.’s Public Defender Service.

According to the complaint, Hinton was arrested for unarmed burglary with intent to steal $20. Hinton was sent to a men’s jail even thought the court identified Hinton as a woman.

The Department of Corrections takes prisoners to jail according to their anatomy. They do not take in account how the individual identifies. These assignments can be changed based on a recommendation from the Department’s Transgender Housing Committee, according to the report.

The suit alleges that the committee hasn’t had any meetings in the last 16 months. During that time period “transgender individuals in DOC custody have been assigned housing based solely on their anatomy.”

DOC spokesperson Keena Blackmon said that Hinton was placed in quarantine for 14 days for COVID-19 protocol. Hinton will be in a “single-occupancy” unit during that time. When the 14 days expire, Hinton will be able to go in front of the housing panel. 

“DC DOC is sensitive to Ms. Hinton’s concerns and will continue to ensure that its residents’ needs are met,” Blackmon said.

  1. And this idiot doesn’t think he would be in harm in a woman’s facility some of them women will cut his penis off themselves if it isn’t already..

  2. What could possibly go wrong placing a biological male in a female facility ?! SMH. They do have single cells. They can have separate units to house transgenders. Or better yet, stay out of jail!!

  3. If these morons start down this road you might as well put every prisoner together regardless of gender just to make it easier on the dimwits who buy into this bull. Every male will want to be in a female prison and swear he is transgender, even if his crime was rape. How stupid can you get !!!
