Nadine Williams, a transgender woman has beencleared of rape and two counts of sexual assault which she was accused of doing before transitioning while presenting as Dean, a male.
Ms. Williams who spend 6 months remanded to pretial confinment iwith men while waiting for the trial simply said she was relieved the “torment” was finally over.
The unfortunate articles I’ve seen to date have misidentified Nadine as a ‘transgender man,’ further adding confussion by misgendering with male pronouns.
But as a testament to her character Nadine told The South Wales that while waiting trial she “worked to try to make the prison trans-friendly” and decided to make her tribulations public knowlage to help people understand the transgender community.
The Swansea Crown Court archives don’t give details only stating that the case was closed.
She now wants to move on with her life and continue her journey.
“I can now rebuild my family life,” said Miss Williams.
“I am cleared and I have been vindicated,” she said.
But she said the road for her could still be hard.
“There could be lasting effects to me, my family, my close friends and the whole transgender community. I just hope people will understand and let me get on with my life.”
