    Martin Ponting, 50, a father of three, was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1995, but has since transformed into Jessica Winfield. Winfield has has been put in isolation in prison after being moved to an all-female jail.

    The double rapist has been awarded £10 000 of British taxpayers money for a sex change behind bars, because he “identified” as a woman. He was moved to a female prison, where the repeat sex offender came into close contact women.

    The convicted rapist Ponting began his sentence in the male-only HMP Whitemoor, Cambridgeshire, but obtained a transfer to Europe’s largest female prison, HMP Bronzefield in Surrey.

    The Daily Mail reported that Winfield made “unwanted sexual advances on inmates”, but prison authorities denied the such advances by the “transgender” with his penis still intact.

    The Sun quoted an inside source saying: “It beggars belief why a convicted double rapist like Jessica is allowed to mix with females despite still have her penis intact. Prison bosses were worried she would try it on with inmates and their fears have come true.”

    Sarah Callaghan, 44, who fell pregnant with Winfield’s first child when she was just 15 and below the age of consent, called Ponting “a danger to everyone around him”.

    She said: “It seems the only person who ever gets any help is Martin – not all the people who have suffered because of him.

    Another one of his victims described the free sex change as “diabolical”. She said: “There are not enough words to describe him and the evil he has done.

    “It is diabolical they have allowed him to have a sex change and diabolical that he could be freed this year. He may have changed physically but his brain is still the same.”
