COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado — A transgender inmate was recently separated from the general female population at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center after a complaint was filed about her, the Sheriff's Office confirmed last week.
The woman had not threatened anyone, but someone complained that she was being "disruptive by talking about her status," spokesman Sgt. Greg White said. He would not release the complaint filed against the inmate, citing concern for her safety.
Inmates at CJC are housed by "biological gender," or what physically classifies them as men or women.
