Illinois DOC Transfers Transgender Inmate To Women’s Prison
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois is about to make history. The state is set to transfer an inmate sentenced to a male prison to a female facility because of gender identity issues. Lawyers for 26-year-old Deon “Strawberry” Hampton yesterday said they’ve reached an agreement with the Illinois Department of Corrections to move Hampton from the Menard Correctional Center in southern Illinois to the Lawrence Correctional Center in eastern Illinois. Hampton complained of abuse at the men’s facility.
