A v. Straw (United Kingdom)

In 2009, the United Kingdom High Court ruled that a transsexual killer jailed for trying to rape a woman should be moved to a women’s prison  –  to protect his human rights.  He will now be housed with hundreds of female inmates after he claimed that serving his sentence in a men’s jail was violating his right to live as a woman.
