Trans inmate jailed for Wakefield prison sex offences
A transgender prisoner who sexually assaulted two inmates at a women’s jail and had previously raped two other women has been sentenced to life.
Karen White, 52, attacked two women in 2017 while at the women’s prison HMP New Hall, in Wakefield.
White, who identifies as a woman and is transitioning, was described as a “predator” who was a danger to women and children, Leeds Crown Court heard.
She must serve a minimum of nine years for rape, sexual assault and wounding.
