This came after April Chambers of St. Louis said her daughter, who is also an inmate at the Ste. Genevieve County Sheriff’s Office and Detention Center, called home to tell her all about it.
“She said, ‘They put a man in here with us,’” Chambers said.
“I said, ‘What do you mean they put a man there?’ She said, ‘He looks like a woman in the face but, he’s having sex with the girls in here.’”
The sheriff’s office said as soon as the office heard about the incident, authorities took steps to separate the transgender individual and the female inmates.
But Chambers said she’s wondering how this could have happened in the first place.
“If she’s incarcerated, I’m thinking she is gonna be incarcerated and being held solely with women, not with women and men,” Chambers said.
