A transgender woman incarcerated at a New Jersey women’s prison has been moved to another facility after impregnating two inmates earlier this year, according to a local report.

Demi Minor, 27, was transferred last month from Edna Mahan Correctional Center in Clinton to Garden State Youth Correctional Center, a young adult prison in Burlington County, spokesman Dan Sperrazza said. of the State Department of Corrections (NJDOC). says

Sperrazza said Minor, who is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter, is currently the only woman incarcerated at the facility and has been placed in the vulnerable unit. He could not comment further on Minor’s housing situation due to NJDOC’s privacy policies, the newspaper reported.

Minor’s decision comes after the newspaper reported in April that Sperrazza said it appeared two of Edna Mahan’s wives had become pregnant after “consensual sex with another incarcerated person”.

Minor has since claimed in a July 15 article written on her Justice 4 Demi website that prison officers beat her during her transfer, according to reports.

The Department of Corrections told it was investigating but could not comment further.

“NJDOC cannot comment on any ongoing investigation,” a statement read. “The Department has zero tolerance for abuse, and the safety and security of the prison population and staff is of paramount importance.”

Edna Mahan Correctional Facility has faced a long string of sexual assault scandals and Governor Phil Murphy last year announced plans to close the facility, which is New Jersey’s only women’s prison. .

In 2021, New Jersey passed a policy allowing prisoners to be housed based on their gender identity following a lawsuit brought by a trans inmate who lived in men’s prisons for 18 months and the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey. The policy was to remain in effect for at least one year.


Sperrazza told the newspaper that while the NJDOC continues to operate within the policy, “the department is currently reviewing the housing policy for incarcerated transgender individuals with the intent to implement minor changes.”

The minor is eligible for parole in 2037, the newspaper reports, citing NJDOC.
