James Randall Smith is incarcerated in New Jersey for kidnapping and raping a 17-year-old girl in 2000. In 2010, Smith sued New Jersey for a sex change, asserting that although he was biologically born male, he is “trapped in a body that doesn’t belong to him,” according to court documents. A New Jersey court rejected his lawsuit.
