Transgender convicted of rape he committed when she was a man

A transgender rapist, Davina Ayrton has been sentenced to eight years in prison after sexually attacking a minor.

The crime was committed in the fall of 2004 when the rapist now 34, met up with the victim and two friends one evening and gone drinking in a garage in Portsmouth, UK which had a sofa and chairs in it. following a week-long trial at Portsmouth Crown Court in January.

In a statement read to the court, the victim said: 'I was a young girl when David Ayrton raped me. At the time I didn't trust the police and didn't want to make a statement. 'As the years have passed, I have never forgotten the incident, how he forced himself on me, I was hysterical and I lived in fear all the time. 'I thought I was a real tough cookie but clearly I wasn't.'

She added that she was shocked when police approached her 10 years after the offence saying that Ayrton had confessed to the attack. The victim said: 'I was initially shocked and all the awful memories came flooding back to me.'

Sentencing Ayrton and placing her on the sex offenders' register for life, Judge Ian Pearson said: 'I accept you have significant mental health issues and you are agonising over your gender issues and wish to live as a woman albeit no operation has been carried out yet.'

Davina Ayrton will serve out her time in a male prison.
