New docudrama of the Angelo Heddington case. Graphic.
This week the family members of women being housed at the Central California Women’s Facility began an urgent campaign for the removal of male serial torture-rapist Richard Masbruch from the female population. Anna Silver of Los Angeles has started a petition upon hearing the news that Masbruch is about to be transferred to her mother’s unit.
From the petition:
Today as I answered my Mothers phone call she spoke to me and sounded slightly more upset than usual, normally she tells me she misses me. Today she told me that Richard Masbruch would be housed at CCWF. He would be the first male to be housed in a womens facility. Not only would he be housed there he would also be housed within her unit 514. Richard Masbruch is a Serial Rapist. During his time in Mens prison after his arrest he cut off his penis, claiming to be transgender. Due to inmates being unable to be interviewed what wasn’t revealed was that Masbruch is in fact still raping women within the facility, just now with foreign objects. He has also brutally injured some of the women within the facility. Please sign my petition against Richard being allowed in a women’s facility of any kind, so that he may return to a male penitentiary. It would not only help me and my mother but any woman in any facility. Thank you for your help and have a wonderful day.
Who is Richard Masbruch? Masbruch is a career criminal and serial torture-rapist who ties women up at gunpoint and splices together multiple electric cords which he then uses to torture, electrocute and shock his victims before raping and sodomizing them.
In 2005 while housed in men’s prison in texas he successfully castrated himself and began calling himself “Sherri”. Upon completion of serving his term for violent sex crimes in Texas he was transferred to California to begin his life sentence for the sexual torture and rapes he committed in that state. California officials opted to house him in the California Medical Facility in Vacaville where prison officials began providing him with cross-sex hormone treatments. In March 2008 he was reclassified as “female” and transferred to the California Institute for Women. According to Anna Silver, who started this week’s petition, Masbruch has continued to rape and injure female inmates during his incarceration.
According to the Fresno Bee article quoted below, he has been placed in segregation previously by prison officials due to conduct violations. It is unknown how long or how frequently this has occurred. As far as I can tell, he has been transferred back and forth between CIW and CCWF at least once before. (According to the LATimes he was housed at the California Institute for Women as of april 2011.)
A formal grievance was filed against him in 2008 by CCWF inmate Patricia Wright. The outcome is unknown. The Fresno Bee was unable to reach Wright for comment due to prison interview restrictions. From Wright’s letter to the Fresno Bee [pdf link]:
“To Whom it May Concern:
There is a critical situation existing at Central California Women’s facility (CCWF) that I feel should be brought to your attention. There is a man by the name of Richard Masbruch who is currently being housed in General Population at an all women’s facility. After a horrible self-mutilation, it became necessary for surgeons to amputate his penis. This does not by any means make this man a woman, it just makes him a man without a penis.
I am sending you a copy of the ‘body’ of the CDCR 602 Grievance that I recently submitted concerning this issue. I would appreciate your feedback and any help or assistance you can offer me. It is not right to force us women to live with a male offender who has been convicted of heinous crimes against women. I have a human right to a reasonable expectation of safety.
Perhaps if the public was informed of this outrageous situation, something could be done. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I would appreciate any advice you can offer me regarding this matter.”
From her complaint:
“This is a cruel and unusual punishment. His presence is a constant threat and my anxiety level increases daily. The placement of this man here is obviously bending the rules and yet my requests to relocate to California Institute for Women (CIW) are repeatedly denied. I should be afforded the same opportunity for flexing the rules as this man. This is blatant discrimination and I will pursue this matter to the highest court if it becomes necessary. I have the right to be housed with only women and be free of the threat posed by this predator.”
From the Fresno Bee in 2008:
On April 2, 1991, Richard Masbruch went to a small apartment complex near First Street and Shaw Avenue in Fresno, pretending that he wanted to sign a lease, according to court records. He forced apartment manager Mary Koop, then 45, at gunpoint to lie face down on the kitchen floor and hog-tied her with a telephone cord.
There, his attempts at self-castration continued. Sometime in 2000 or 2001, he succeeded in castrating himself, Craig Masbruch said. He’s not sure if his brother was truly overcome by guilt or if he suffers from some form of mental illness.
“I don’t know what’s going through his head,” Craig Masbruch said. “The only thing I can think of is if you’re incarcerated so many years and went through all that … maybe he was so downgraded as a man that he felt better as a woman.”
Craig Masbruch said he doesn’t know when his brother first started taking hormone treatment. He said his mother often sent Masbruch money, which could have been used for hormone treatment while he was imprisoned in Texas.
Hensley, the criminal justice professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, said it is uncommon for inmates to receive hormone treatment while in custody “considering that a lot of prisons are overcrowded and health care is already a major issue.”
When deciding whether to put a former man into a women’s prison, officials must balance the safety of the individual with the safety of the prison’s general population, Hensley said. Masbruch’s case is especially difficult.
In 2006, a transgender inmate at Folsom State Prison who took female hormones was raped by a male inmate. She sued seven prison workers, saying they failed to protect her from her sexually aggressive cellmate. A jury trial ruled against her, but a state appeals court reinstated the lawsuit last month and the matter remains unresolved.
But Shannon Minter, a San Francisco attorney who sits on the board of the New York-based Transgender Law and Policy Institute, said the California prison system appears to have handled Masbruch’s case well.
“What we need to do is get past people’s knee-jerk assumptions and fears and biases and look at this from a reasonable, scientific point of view,” he said. “It’s very easy to accommodate transgender prisoners and house them according to their gender identity.”
According to this 2011 comment Masbruch was currently being housed in SHU (special housing unit) as of last summer:
“I just paroled from CIW and I am completely mortified that a violent MAN is serving time in a womans prison. Richard was arrested, tried, and convicted as a MAN, what is the problem here? The state of CA was, but, is no longer paying for the sex change of a STRAIGHT MAN, so HE can be housed in a womans prison. Richard reaps many benefits of being a STRAIGHT MAN in a womans prison. He is currently being housed in SHU due to attacks against women, wtf???? What is wrong with our state?”
Transgender activist Rebecca (Jared) Kling at fridaythang.com/blog had a different take on the priorities of this situation as he took time to post his personal email complaining to campaign organizer Anna Silver about her use of male pronouns to refer to the serial torture-rapist Masbruch in her petition to prevent the sadistic psychopath from being housed with her mother.
You can read the details of Masbruch’s California crimes at the following link but be advised. This link will take you to a legal record of Masbruch’s trial: http://law.justia.com/cases/california/cal4th/13/1001.html As such it contains horrific graphic details of the sadistic torture and sexualized violence against the females victimized by Mr. Masbruch. If you click on this link you will become extremely upset. For that reason I am not excerpting this record here. You can choose to read it or simply sign the Change.org petition in support of the women who are being subjected to cruel and unusual punishment twenty-four hours a day by being housed with this monster.
Those of you in the media or with media contacts please do what you can to raise the profile of this campaign. Thank you.

Interesting little item out of Colorado over the weekend. News station KRDO Channel 13 reports that a woman was terrified by a man in the women’s restroom of a local shopping mall. She fled the scene and reported the incident to mall security to investigate. She was told that because of the 2008 “Gender Identity Protections” law passed in Colorado, the mall was unable to even question –much less report to police- any males who are trespassing in formerly sex-segregated women’s bathrooms. The reason given was that any males who like hanging out in women’s restrooms “might” claim internal “gender identities”, which presumably could result in mall security being sued for questioning such a man.
From the article:
“COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – One woman says she had a double scare at the Chapel Hills Mall bathroom on Wednesday. It was in the women’s facility near the Children’s Place.
She says a man was in the bathroom. She rushed to get help from mall security. The man was gone when they got the restroom. The woman also says she was told by security that they couldn’t restrain him unless he was doing something criminal. She says security told her it was because of a 2008 Colorado law.
Chapel Hills Mall wouldn’t directly confirm or comment on the complaint. They did send this statement on the law and how they follow it to the letter.
It states: “Chapel Hills Mall and their national security provider comply with all federal, state and local laws including the Public Accommodations Anti-Discrimination law amendments that became effective May 29, 2008. As will all public accommodations, which is defined as any place of business that offers sales or services of any kind to the public, Chapel Hills Mall is required to allow entry and services to all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation or transgender status. As outlined in the FAQ document produced by the State of Colorado for this law, individuals have the legal right to use gender-segregated services, such as public restrooms, appropriate to their gender identity rather than their assigned gender at birth, without being harassed or questioned.“
Link with video:
Speaking of trans activists claiming this never happens, those who click the link will see not one but two comments from self-proclaimed “woman with a penis”: trans and anti-female-rights activist Autumn Sandeen, who chides the news organization for reporting something which “isn’t newsworthy”. He then goes so far as to accuse news station KRDO of “manufacturing news”, presumably because reporting news of interest to females makes it “un-newsworthy”. We can see in action the attempt by national trans activists to silence and suppress reportage of such incidents which are caused by “Gender Identity” laws erasing all rights of females to privacy from the male gaze in sex-segregated areas such as restrooms.
Trans activists claim that it is unlikely that predators will lie about an internal “Gender Identity” to gain access to female spaces (even though they make up all sorts of lies to do so). But as this article shows, in areas where Gender Identity laws erase female rights, trespassing males are not even being questioned, due to fears of “Internal Gender Identity” lawsuits- even though we know without a doubt that predators are targeting women in such spaces.

Transgenders celebrated a major victory this week in a landmark case representing one of their own: Massachusetts child rapist Sandy-Jo Battista.
McDermott Will & Emory, one of the largest law firms in the world, representing over 50% of the Fortune 500 companies globally issued a press release this week announcing their latest landmark victory. After six years of free pro bono representation a team of McDermott Will & Emory litigators has won “the right” for the rapist of a ten year girl to receive tax payer funded sex change treatment while he remains incarcerated. The law firm, established in 1934 by Chicago lawyers Edward H. McDermott and William M. Emory called the ruling a “Major Win in Landmark Transgender Rights Case”.
Transactivists and McDermott Will & Emory believe that child rapists have a right to receive tax payer funded “sex changes” if they claim to begin suffering from symptoms of a disordered “gender identity” during incarceration for their violent pedophilic sex crimes. The law firm provided six years and unknown thousands of dollars in free legal representation to secure this “right” for Sandy-Jo Battista, formerly David E. Megarry Jr., who was convicted of robbery, kidnapping and the rape of a child. He- or as transgenders claim- “She” is currently detained via civil commitment in the all male Massachusetts Treatment Center for Sexually Dangerous Persons facility without limit of sentence due to his legal status as a “Sexually Dangerous Person”.
Battista was apprehended in 1982 for hiding in the woods and abducting a ten year old girl, forcing her into his car, abducting and driving her into the woods known as Lombardi’s Grove in Milford, Mass. where he tied her up, gagged her, raped her, and left her there. He was also charged with robbery for taking the money she had earned selling fudge door-to-door to raise money for her skating club (which is what she was doing when he abducted her).
From the Dedham, Mass. Daily News Transcript: “When he was 14, Batista assaulted a 6-year-old girl. A year later, prosecutors say Batista took another young girl into the woods, but stopped short of assaulting her.
He spent three years in a Department of Youth Services program at Medfield State Hospital for the juvenile incidents. Behind bars for child rape, Batista got slapped with 64 entries on his disciplinary record.
In a 1986 case, Batista got caught making obscene phone calls to young girls he picked out of local newspapers. About a decade later, Batista was penalized for keeping pictures of young girls in his jail cell, said Assistant District Attorney Peter Pratt.
Transgenders say that the ten year old girl may have been “asking for it”. From the trans website “A Gender Variance Who’s Who” site administrator Zagria in a post defending Megarry and concerned about the rapists’s welfare in a post titled: “What will happen to Sandy-Jo?” speculates about the ten year old rape victim: “Was it real forcible rape? Was it statutory but consensual? Was it mainly a misunderstanding? The various mentions online say nothing between these options.”
The Department of Justice, which unlike transactivist Zagria doesn’t consider child rape and kidnapping as an “option” took a different view than transgenders and sentenced the baby-raper to 18 years in prison. Transactivists may be surprised to learn that no legal entity in the country considers rape between a grown man and a ten year old child consensual. Go figure! As for Megarry/Battista, he remains civilly committed by the state of Mass. Due to his – “her” – frequent infractions behaviors and incidents during his – “her”- incarceration which deems him an ongoing threat to girl children.
Transactivists claim that men like Megarry/Battista should be given taxpayer funded “sex changes” and transferred to women’s prisons. Supporter Zagria cites the Canadian case of “Synthia Kavanagh” a male murderer who was given a state-funded “sex change” and then transferred to a women’s prison.
In countries with Gender Identity Protections, (which override sex-based protections of women in favor of the “internal gender identity” of males) state funded “sex changes” of male rapists and murderers of women and subsequent transfer of the perps to women’s prisons is commonplace. In some cases, like John Pilley’s, the perp decides women’s prison isn’t as fun as they thought, wants to change back, and demands “sex change reversal” treatment, also paid for by the state.
From the victorious McDermott Will & Emory press release:
“The injunction obtained by McDermott on behalf of the Firm’s pro bono client, Sandy Battista, requires the State of Massachusetts to provide necessary medical care for Ms. Battista’s gender identity disorder (GID). The opinion reinforces the fact that GID is a recognized disorder that, if left untreated, creates a “substantial risk of serious harm,” and “can be extremely dangerous.” The First Circuit found that an unjustified failure to treat GID gives rise to a constitutional violation. Judge Michael Boudin wrote the First Circuit opinion, joined by Judge Norman Stahl and retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter, who sat on the panel by designation.”
“This case is about one’s right to medical care while incarcerated,” said [Former actor] Neal Minahan, an associate in McDermott’s Boston office who argued the case before the First Circuit. “Incarcerated, transgender individuals have as much right to medically necessary care as any other person in the State’s custody. The First Circuit recognized that waiting nearly a decade to fill a medical prescription is inexcusable. In this case, it violated our client’s constitutional rights.”
“Ms. Battista, a transgender resident of the Massachusetts Treatment Center, was first diagnosed with GID in 1997 and has struggled to receive treatment for the disorder for over a decade. In June 2005, Ms. Battista filed this case as a pro se litigant in the United States District Court of Massachusetts in response to the DOC’s decision to block her prescription for GID treatment. That treatment, which included hormone medication, had been unanimously approved by the DOC’s own contracted medical providers. In November 2007, District Court Judge Douglas P. Woodlock appointed McDermott as pro bono counsel. Years of intensely fought litigation culminated in a bench trial before the U.S. District Court in June 2010. The McDermott trial team was lead by Minahan and Dana McSherry, a partner in the Firm’s Boston office.”
“The District Court found that Ms. Battista “may not be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment which consists of the neglect of her serious medical needs, nor may her serious needs become a pretext for the infliction of additional punishments. And that is what has happened here.” After trial, the court issued an injunction requiring the DOC to provide GID treatment to Ms. Battista, including access to hormone medication. That injunction was stayed pending the DOC’s appeal to the First Circuit panel, which issued its unanimous opinion on Friday, May 20, 2011.” [Italics/bolding mine-GM]
“The McDermott team working on this case also included partner Mike Kendall, associate Benjamin Franklin, legal assistant Christine Slyman, and former McDermott partners Christopher Man and Emily Smith-Lee.”
Another inmate, convicted strangulation killer Robert Kosilek, now “Michelle Lynn Kosilek” since developing transsexuality during his life sentence for murder- filed papers yesterday in response to the ruling, demanding state funded electrolysis and plastic surgery to construct a superficial approximation of female genitals. He has already been receiving tax funded hormones.
It is currently unknown whether the murderer and child-rapist will be transferred to women’s facilities upon completion of their cosmetic transformation. Also unknown is if state funded FFS (facial feminization surgery) will be mandated, although according to medically accepted WPATH standards-of-care facial surgery along with breast augmentation IS considered medically necessary care.
Some transactivists feel tax payer funded breast implants, electrolysis and “sex change” surgeries are not enough to “affirm” the “gender identity” of rapists pedophiles and murderers. Transjactivist Monica Roberts complains today about transgendered murder suspect Nina Kanagasingham, who is accused of throwing another male transgender under the wheels of a subway car, “My British trans cousins have been more than a little pissed about the sensationalist and transphobic coverage being generated in the British media concerning this case. They are also not happy about how Kanagasingham has been treated by the British legal system either. In addition to being housed in a men’s prison, she was hauled into Old Bailey unshaven, a point in which the British press took great glee in pointing out in their stories.”
It’s unknown if trans advocates will win the right for police to hand suspected murderers claiming GID a razor prior to arresting them so that their “right” to look clean shaven is “protected” but after these recent transgender victories for male murderers and child rapists, who knows? With the advocacy and unlimited resources of the law firm of McDermott Will & Emory, anything is possible.
To the woman, almost 40 now, who was abducted, tied up, gagged and raped 30 years ago at the age of ten by this serial pedophillic predator and monster: My thoughts and prayers go out to you tonight as you struggle to deal with the “victory” of this man through the work of McDermott Will & Emory and trans activists worldwide. YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.

Transgender Activists always dismiss the realistic concerns that women have about allowing males into spaces that are sex segregated for female privacy from male predators. Such as restrooms, locker rooms, showers, hospital bed assignments, jail cells, homeless shelters, rape crisis centers, etc. These activists deny and disregard the real threat to females by males, even males who want to dress in feminine clothes or who “feel like women inside” or who have a psychiatric disorder that causes them to claim they are actually female, even though they are male. These men do not give a shit about the actual people they want to minstrelize and dress up as and mimic. They not only deny that we are oppressed because of our sex, they claim our sex doesn’t even exist! But they do more than deny female reality and make kooky claims: They are using the political capital of Lesbians and Gays to pass laws enforcing their male-centric female-phobic sexist views. “Gender Identity Protections” are laws that eliminate sex-based protections for females.
Examples of such protected areas are:
Hospital Bed Assignments
Statistical Data collection
Title IX endowments
Women’s Health resources, statistics and research endowment
Sex based crime statistics
Rape Crisis Centers
Children’s sleepover camps
One of the tropes Transjacktivists use to promote and legalize their desire to eliminate female spaces is to assert that males with GID are speshul snowflakes or claim that males wouldn’t adopt transgenderism in order to prey on women. Or that males who are arrested repeatedly for getting off on watching women perform intimate activities (in places they assume they are free from males) wouldn’t go through the trouble of putting on a wig that makes those same activities legal. Whut??? Are you out of your mind? Why wouldn’t a guy who risks arrest repeatedly to invade women’s space comply with measures which make his activities legal?? It’s considerably less inconvenient to put on a skirt and some lippy than to be arrested and processed, make bail, go before a judge, etc. etc. One might say it is quite more convenient indeed!
Transjacktivists claim that arrest statistics for peeping and perving don’t show a sharp increase in states where men are allowed in women’s spaces. Well of course they don’t! Making a formerly illegal behavior LEGAL seldom results in more arrests for (now legal) behavior. Duh!
The truth is guys do this shit all the time. And they’ll do whatever it takes to perv on females. Here are some of the things they’ll do to get into female spaces:
- Hide cameras and microphones in female spaces.
- Crawl through ventilation ducts to view female spaces.
- Install double mirrors to view female spaces.
- Drill holes in walls to peep women’s spaces.
- Place cameras in shopping bags next to females wearing skirts.
- Risking arrest –and repeat arrest- sneaking into women’s restrooms.
- Dress up as and try to pass as female.
- Claim they are female.
- Try to pass laws permitting men who claim they are female to legally enter spaces where females do not want men.
- Try to pass laws that state that females don’t actually exist.
- Force law enforcement and media outlets to report male crimes against women as woman-on-woman crime, if the male is diagnosed with GID.
Let’s face it, males commit violent and sexual crimes against women. Statistically, it is indisputable. And criminal actions by and arrests of men don’t decrease after SRS (sexual reassignment surgery). In fact post SRS males have higher rates of criminality than the general public. There are voluminous incidents of transgender male violence against women. Murders, rapes, assaults. There are infantesimal reports of crimes against male transgenders committed by female perpetrators. Statistically minute. What does that tell us? It tells us that females should have the right to sex-segregated areas in places where they are especially vulnerable to male crimes against women. And that includes males who suffer from GID.
EVERY TIME I see a trans claim that male transgenders in female spaces don’t hurt women I’m going to add a link to this page. And if they keep it up, I’ll start a list of violent crimes committed against females by male transgenders.

Hardman told Birmingham Magistrates’ Court he felt “sexual gratification out of everything that goes on in women’s toilets”. When asked to explain his outfit, he said he wore the clothes to a fancy dress party and then tried it out at the shopping mall.” http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8238380/man-dressed-as-mannequin-found-in-mall-toilet
Cross-dressing Peeper Infiltrates Cal Women’s Locker Room

“A man dressed as a woman has been spotted peeping at females and photographing them in a UC Berkeley locker room.”
“North Little Rock Police arrested 39 year old Scotty Vest for sexual indecency outside a women’s bathroom, near a playground at Burns Park. Vest was arrested Monday after police say he exposed himself and masturbated in front of three children, two are 11 and one is 12, while trying to lure them inside the bathroom. Those three children ran to a group of adults nearby and asked for help. “They came up to me and they were waiving at me and next thing I know they’re running down the hill you know, ‘call the cops, call the cops, there is this man there’s this man dressed up as a woman and he’s playing with himself,’” says Mary Stafford.”
Police: Cross-Dressing Peeping Tom Arrested Again

“A cross-dressing man claims another transvestite bit off the tip of his nose during an assault in a restroom at popular south Omaha nightspot. That club is now being sued.
A cross-dressing man who was assaulted in a club restroom has filed suit against the nightclub. The suit states “Tquila and its employees should have known that when there was a gathering of numerous patrons in the restroom that there was trouble and the potential of physical harm to one of its patrons.”

“Polk County, TN – What happens when a registered sex offender and his cross-dressing boyfriend show up at an elementary school on Grandparent’s Day? Not much. What happens when the sex offender’s cross-dressing boyfriend enters the girl’s restroom to drain the main vein? People get weirded out and start investigating shit. When staff members saw the cross-dresser go into the bathroom, they grew suspicious and checked the school’s sign-in sheet, cross-referenced it with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Sex Offender Registry and found 49-year-old William Baker’s name in both places. “They were more concentrated on the cross-dresser when it was actually the man with the cross-dresser that shouldn’t have been there,” said Polk County Sheriff’s Detective Brian Fields. Baker was convicted of criminal attempt to commit aggravated sexual battery of a 6-year-old girl back in ’94 and is not allowed near children. Plus, Baker doesn’t even have any young ‘ens enrolled at the school, he and his boyfriend were merely dropping off a neighbor that day and decided to hang around for the festivities. Once Baker and his companion realized they had raised some eyebrows, they left school grounds. Deputies caught up with Baker a few days later and placed him under arrest. He stands accused of violating Tennessee sex offender regulations. Aside from being on school grounds when he shouldn’t have, Baker did nothing illegal. “You don’t want the fox going into the hen house,” said Polk County Director of Schools James Jones. “It’s a safety issue for our children. And the law is very specific about when and how a sex offender can be on school property.”

Transgendered suspect stole $3G from women in restrooms, cops say
Posted by the Ocean County Observer on 07/25/06
BY KIM PREDHAM STAFF WRITER
LACEY — A transgendered Floridian stole more than $3,000 from women at the Forked River service station, police reported yesterday. Gwendolyn (aka Edward) Scott, 49, of Miami, was arrested Saturday after she was observed at the women’s bathroom at the service station on the Garden State Parkway, State Police Trooper John Steet said.
The bathroom had been the scene of several thefts, dating back to May 20, Steet said. The suspect would target middle-aged and older women who hooked their purses on the bathroom stall door, he said. Some victims also reported being escorted or directed to a specific stall.
Generally, they would not notice their purse had been taken until they saw it returning over the stall door, either hitting them in the head or falling to the floor, he said.
“Emory Police Department (EPD) officers arrested “Coco Dorella,” whose legal name is William Frazier, on Sept. 18 at the Dobbs University Center (DUC) for carrying a loaded weapon onto school property.
Frazier was reported by an Emory staff member, who said that a black male wearing a multicolored mini skirt and a wig had entered the women’s restroom, said Lt. Cheryl Elliott of EPD, adding that the DUC staff had asked him on many occasions not to use the restroom.
According to EPD reports, the semi-automatic gun had a magazine with seven rounds of ammunition.Frazier also had a box with approximately 37 to 40 rounds of ammunition.”

“Police said Isaiah Johnson, 20, of Stamford, and “two other males dressed as females in the area of Veteran’s Park Bus stop” coerced the teenage boy into the bathroom of the food court of the Stamford mall on April 26, where a sexual encounter took place. The next day, the student told a school administrator, who reported the incident. Stamford police charged Johnson with second-degree sexual assault, second-degree unlawful restraint and risk of injury to a minor.” http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/Teen-Coerced-Into-Food-Court-Bathroom-for-Sex-Cops-123472564.html
LINK ADDED as promised. -This week RServen posted an article on the Daily Kos which asked “Has there ever been a case of a transperson committing such an act in a public restroom? Research comes up empty.” I wish RServen luck on improving his research skills, or at least his ability to lie more convincingly. In his honor I post this link from last week:

MILWAUKIE, Ore. – A registered sex offender dressed up like a woman, went into a women’s locker room at a pool and talked with several children before being chased down by a good Samaritan, according to a Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman.
Friday around 3 p.m. 39-year-old Thomas Lee Benson put on a bra, lipstick and eyeliner and walked into the North Clackamas Aquatic Park in Milwaukie, Detective Jim Strovink said.
Strovink said Benson wandered around the center talking with children, went in the women’s locker room and took a dip in the hot tub.
The pool was full of children at the time, including many on a summer field trip with the group Self Enhancement, Inc.
26-year-old Tayo Cotton and other adults were supervising kids on the field trip when he noticed Benson walk into the locker room. He said Benson was wearing a bikini at that point. He next saw Benson leave the men’s locker room dressed in men’s clothes.
“It looked just like a man wearing a bikini bottom and he had a white t-shirt on with a bikini top, you could see the bikini top,” Cotton said.
Cotton tried to stop Benson when he came out but Benson took off running, Strovink said.
Cotton gave chase as Benson ran into the parking lot and through a Sears department store. Cotton said Benson was trying to open several car doors during the chase.
Eventually, Strovink said Benson found a car with an open rear window and was able to open the door. There was a startled woman in the car.
Before Benson could get into the car, Cotton grabbed him by the shoulders and pulled him away. During the tussle, a Clackamas County deputy arrived and handcuffed Benson.
“I just ran to him, grabbed him, kind of wrapped him up and then just kind of rolled on him,” Cotton said. “He didn’t say one word to me, make any eye contact from the moment I saw him until he was arrested.”
Benson was taken to jail and faces charges of unlawful contact with a child, unlawfully being in a location where children congregate, robbery and attempted unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
“That’s horrifying, because some people let their kids go change in the bathroom,” said parent Tisha Rayson.
Benson has a history of similar behavior. In 2007, Portland Police said he dressed up as a woman and went into the women’s locker room at Mt. Scott Community Center.
According to the state sex offender registry, Benson was convicted in 1994 of sex abuse and was known to target girls between five and nine years old. The state lists him as a “predatory” sex offender.

He Just Wanted to Shake Women’s Hands—as Cross-Dresser in Restroom
Strange report from Grossmont Center details man dressed up as woman, but considered an isolated incident.

People often dress up for movies—Harry Potter fans being the latest example. But one visitor to the Grossmont Center cinemas was acting up in the wrong place at the wrong time Sunday—a man in the women’s restroom.
That afternoon, a possibly middle-aged man was reported to be wearing older women’s clothing and a face mask, pretending to be a woman, La Mesa police said Wednesday.
The dressed up man came out of a stall inside the women’s restroom at the movie theater at Reading Cinemas Grossmont Center 10, said police Lt. Dan Willis.
“At the time, the reporting person, a woman washing her hands at the sink counter, was approached by the dressed up man, who asked the woman if he could shake her hand,” Willis said.
“When the woman said ‘No,’ the subject left and was walking around the lobby of the movie theater asking to shake the hands of women.
A police “calls for service” report mislabeled the incident as indecent exposure, Willis said.
But it was merely a Municipal Code violation—an adult being in the opposite sex bathroom.
“There is no further information on the subject, and we have not had any similar calls,” Willis said.

Officers responded to the scene at about 1:30 p.m. after a college staff member said she saw the man go into the women’s rest room and alerted security personnel.
An investigation found that the suspect had gone into the rest room while two women were inside, according to a police report. The women were later interviewed and said they had no idea that the man was there.
When police interviewed the man, he claimed that he had gone into the bathroom to use the facilities.
But the investigating officer noted that the man was wearing a wig and bra. A search also turned up a pair of woman’s panties in his front pocket, according to the police report.
The man, later identified as Taylor J. Buehler, 18, of Lake Stevens, was placed under arrest.
He admitted to officers that he was the suspect in an earlier voyeurism incident at Everett Community College on Monday, police said.
In the earlier incident, he said he took a shower in the girls’ locker room for sexual gratification, acccording to the police report.”
