We might want to chalk this incident up to “Ripley’s Believe It or Not,” concerning the perplexing sentencing guidelines in merry-old-England, that seemed to confuse a British judge last Tuesday, when he was unable to figure out if the criminal defendant scheduled for sentencing before him, was either a male or female.

Faced with that mind-numbing dilemma of whether to send the criminal to a male or female prison facility, the bewildered judge decided to give the transgender thug a “suspended sentence,” in lieu of the prescribed jail time.

The defendant, who goes by several different aliases, including Leila Le Fey, Layla Le Fey, Adam Hodgson and Marcus Smith, pleaded guilty in Lewes Crown Court to common assault and possession of an offensive weapon.

According to court records the 40-year old defendant was charged in November stemming from an incident in Brighton, England, in which Ley Fey attempted to steal a wine bottle from a liquor store, while threatening the store manager with a claw hammer, after the manager stepped in and attempted to stop Ley Fey from running off with the bottle.

Judge Stephen Mooney, condemned Le Fey’s action as “inexcusable behavior” and handed down a six-month prison sentence, however Le Fey’s attorneys cleverly criticized the judge’s ruling arguing that their client was a woman, and sentencing “her” to a male prison facility would endanger his client’s wellbeing if  incarcerated with men.

Defense lawyer Rebecca Upton told the court that Le Fey had undergone sex reassignment surgery but had not yet obtained a “gender recognition certificate.”

Which according to British law, transgender individuals who self-identify as either male or female, must do so for at least 2-years in order to be legally acknowledged as a transgender individual. After two years the individual will receive a certificate from the government recognizing whatever gender status chosen.

However without certification, Upton concluded the only way to confirm Le Fey’s “womanhood” would be to require a physical examination, which the court wasn’t prepared to do at sentencing.

Thus without an actual physical examination, the Lewes Crown Court staff could not confirm Le Fey’s gender, Judge Moony decided at that point, to reverse is own sentencing, an hour after he sentenced Le Fey to 6-months in prison, instead the judge gave  Le Fey a 6-month suspended sentence.

The befuddled judge attempted to explain the perplexing situation from the bench stating; “Issues have now arisen. “We live in a society which acknowledges and embraces diversity and allows and encourages people to live the life they want to. Sometimes society does not make the necessary or appropriate adjustments in all ways it can to reflect the adjustments of society as a whole.”

Adding, “There are circumstances where it can be regarded as disproportionate in a society that acknowledges diversity but has a lack of resources otherwise to deal with it. Having reflected again upon the impact an immediate custodial sentence would have, the difficulties there are and the intractable problems the prison service would face, I have reconsidered whether imprisonment must be immediate.”

One wonders what prevailing issue stopped the judge from postponing the sentencing, and ordering a physical examination by a physician.

The question is, “did Leila Le Fey get away with avoiding prison? Of course!

Police records shows that Le Fey is a clever career criminal with over 50 previous convictions, including three for brandishing a knife public, shoplifting and low-level violence.

  1. Hey judge, just check out the groin to determine the gender. Then resign due to stupidity.

  2. If “it” does know what “it” is, then why should we treat “it” as a person. People are defined by names, and sexes, but since “it” doesn’t know ‘its’ definitive values, why should we treat ‘it’ as a person.

  3. For goodness sake pleast British legal system keep this quiet so our prison system doesnt get wind of it ! ! !
    For my thinking if a prisoner has a penis put them in the mens prison, if not then stick them in the womens prison. comfort and convenience should not be a consideration, prison is not supposed to be a pleasant place ! ! !

  4. “Le Fey’s attorneys cleverly criticized the judge’s ruling arguing that their client was a woman, and sentencing “her” to a male prison facility would endanger his client’s well being if incarcerated with men.”
    This may be true but it better than endangering the well being of all female inmates and guards at a women’s facility.

  5. The transgender person was addicted to alcohol. Wine is a mocker. Strong drink is raging. They that are deceived thereby, are not wise.

  6. well I don`t know but normally these judges are way over the hill and shouldn’t be there,they have not got a clue when it comes to real life

  7. That UK judge should be sent back to middle school where he can learn the difference between a male and a female. Until then, he should be taken off the bench.

  8. The judge should have ordered him/her into his chambers and ordered him/her to pull down his/her pants. That is the only way to determine sex. Letting a criminal off the hook because the judge doesn’t know the sex of the offender should not happen.

  9. What the hell do we care about what goes on in the U.K.? Keep the world safe, PLUG A THUG

  10. It makes sense to me to take a blood or tissue sample. Determine whether this person is carrying “Y” chromosome in his body and if so, put him in jail with male inmates. If not, put this person in an incarceration facility with other females. Hiding behind “transgender” is hollow. Strip it away and go with what this person was when born and is still is, regardless of social acknowledgement.

  11. send it to that Cuban prison, should clarify sex quickly, especially with all those arab buttlovers

  12. Time for that judge to retire. When a judge fails to perform his or her duties in accordance with the law he or she must relinquish their post. Too many judges stay judges until they either drop dead or become physically unable to sit at the bench. There should be an age limit or length of service attached to being a judge. Everybody else retires at a certain age or as the custom seems to be lately they just get laid off.
