A mother-of-four says she owned up to a crime she didn’t commit just to steer clear of returning to a Scottish prison with two trans inmates, locked up for murder and sexual assault. The Mail has the story.
Amanda Benson, 42, from Inverkip, Scotland, was imprisoned on remand at HMP Greenock with the two trans women – murderer Alex Stewart, 34, and sexual assaulter Laura Miller, 30.
Neither have had gender surgery or taken gender-affirming hormones, Mrs. Benson said.
Stewart – previously known as Alan Baker – was jailed for 19 years for stabbing father-of-two John Weir, 36, to death after they met on a dating site.
The trans prisoner reportedly started dating a female child killer in HMP Greenock in 2020.
Miller was jailed for almost two years in 2022 after he sexually assaulted a woman who had taken sleeping medication on multiple occasions in 2017 and even filmed one of the attacks, in which he made an offensive sexual remark about her.
Although he had committed the offence when he was in jail with Mrs. Benson, it was only in 2022 that he was convicted of that crime. In 2018, he was in Greenock Prison for a different unknown crime.
