Transgender Man Charged With Raping Man — TWICE

A British woman appeared in the court for being accused of raping a man twice.

Katie Brannen, 26 years old, of South Shields, Tyne and Wear, United Kingdom, is said to have attacked the alleged victim, which occurred in January this year. The alleged victim, however, still cannot be officially named for legal purposes. Brannen presented at the Newcastle Crown Court on March 7 facing two offences of rape.

In an old news published in The Shields Gazette, it has been confirmed that the woman involved in the case is indeed a transgender.  In her involvement in taxi fare dodging case, she told the court that she was going through gender reassignment and wanted to be known as Katie Brannen.

Prosecutor Julie Clemitson told the court that the trial will last approximately four days. Judge Robert Spragg ordered the trial to be listed on December 4 and a further review hearing to be held on September 25, by which Brannen must attend.

“If you do not come to your trial on December 4, it could go ahead in your absence. On those terms, you are free to go and we will see you back here on September 25.” – Judge Spragg instructed Brannen.

No further details surrounding the alleged attack were given in court.
