Transgender inmate admits Wakefield jail sex offences
A transgender prisoner has admitted sexually assaulting inmates at a women's jail.
Karen White, 51, who was born male but now identifies as a woman, has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield.
The offences took place between September and November last year. She has since been moved to a male prison.
Details emerged when White appeared at Leeds Crown Court to admit to a rape committed outside prison.
White previously admitted two further rapes, which also happened outside jail.
White will be sentenced for all offences on 11 October.
