Transgender woman faces 70 years in jail for raping child in a restroom

via Casper Police

A transgender woman could spend the rest of her life behind bars after being convicted of raping a 10-year-old girl in a restroom. According to Casper Star Tribune, the incident occurred in Casper, Wyoming, during a gathering of family and friends.

Miguel Martinez took the child to the restroom and began touching her private parts. Martinez then penetrated the child.

After the incident, the girl told her mother who reported the crime to authorities. Doctors were able to examine the girl and found evidence that she had been sexually abused.

When confronted by police, Martinez claimed the girl was lying and using it as a “publicity stunt.” Martinez also said the child was “talking crap” on the day the abuse occurred.

The incident sheds light on why it’s important for parents to always keep a close eye on the people who have access to their kids. According to a study by NAPCAN, 95 percent of children who were sexually abused were abused by someone they knew. Parents should always give their children the courage to speak up if they have been violated by anyone. Children who have been abused should also be given some form of mental health counseling to help them cope with the experience.

Martinez was convicted of second-degree sexual abuse and currently faces 70 years in prison.

  1. This all seems suspect. Most transgenders would never cross that line. Why would a mother be so trusting of such a person. This can’t be made about transgender. It is the sign of a phedophile. The two usually don’t add up.

    1. In what world is this? How do you think some kids get turned out in the first place? You must have never heard of the North American Man Boy Love Association.. NAMBLA. They funded most of the legislation to get these folks rights.. We’ll see how society turns out..

  2. Just for the excuses he came up with really?! He deserves everything coming to him he’ll get plenty of acton in prison for the rest of his life. inmates hate child predators! they got this!

  3. this is some bull – MEN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE SAME RESTROOM AS WOMEN. How about her was using the that line “transgender” – it was a man in a dress preying on little girl – nasty SOB- lock him up WITH MEN WHERE HE SHOULD BE!

    1. So your saying every single male out there no matter what, they are all Child molesters? Because that to me is what you are saying. I was molested as a child, and yes there are some men as well as some women who just give me the creeps. But on the whole people don’t bother me much. And I can’t even tell a trans from a non trans unless they tell me. BTW *those* people have been using our bathrooms since at least the 70s!!! Why is it just a big deal now 40 or 50 years later?? And how many kids have been abused or raped? This person is just a sick SOB.
