Jessica Winfield, a.k.a. Martin Ponting (U.K.)

Jessica Winfield is a man (formerly known as Martin Ponting) who was convicted of raping two young girls in 1995.  He now identifies as a woman, and is currently serving a life sentence at HMP Bronzfield in Ashford, U.K., Europe’s largest prison for women, where he was transferred following his state-funded March 2017 “gender reassignment surgery.”  In reference to his “gender reassignment,” one of the women he victimized stated, “To assume the identity of a woman after what he did is a kick in the teeth.”

Winfield was segregated from the main prison population (WOMEN, who don’t deserve to be locked up with a MAN who has a history of RAPING WOMEN) last week.  While some news sites are reporting that he was segregated “after being reported for making inappropriate advances to other prisoners,” others are reporting he “was not placed into segregation for making inappropriate sexual advances to her fellow female inmates.”
