“woman”

According to documents from the Parole Board of Canada dated Sept. 1, Madilyn Harks, who was formerly known as Matthew Ralf Harks, will face a residency condition upon her statutory release.

A “woman” convicted of sexually assaulting children will have to reside in a halfway house after completing her sentence due to concerns she is a risk to reoffend following her release.

According to documents from the Parole Board of Canada dated Sept. 1, Madilyn Harks, who was formerly known as Matthew Ralf Harks, will face a residency condition upon her statutory release. She will also be required to follow a treatment plan, respect a curfew and follow psychological counselling. She will be prohibited from having any contact with children under the age of 18 unless supervised by an adult who is aware of her criminal history, and must avoid locations where children may be expected to congregate.

Harks began serving a three-year sentence for sexual assault against a seven-year-old female in April 2007. She was released in 2010 and began a 10-year long-term supervision order.

According to the parole board, that supervision order, which was lifted in July 2014, was “rife with compliance issues.”

Harks was convicted of two breaches in April 2016 and received a 330-day sentence.

The board said one of those breaches related to a long-term relationship with an incarcerated male sex offender that Harks had been in for more than a year without disclosing it to her parole officer.

In the second breach, the parole board said Harks chartered a plane and a taxi to go to a residence in another province to obtain money for the man, whom she was engaged to.

“Your actions were discovered because you did not pay the charter pilot, who contacted the police,” the documents indicate.

At the time of Harks’ offence in 2007, she was on probation following two convictions of sexual assault against two children aged four and five years old.

“You have also admitted to having approximately 60 victims and you estimate having committed 200 offences, with some of those offences being multiple offences against some of your victims,” the parole board stated.

The board noted that in April 2006, Harks was identified in a dangerous offender psychiatric assessment as having an “all encompassing preoccupation with interest in sexually abusing young girls.”

The documents indicate Harks could also be facing charges for three alleged offences that took place recently while she was in custody: assault, unlawful confinement and sexual assault.

“The targets of your alleged offences have children and are considered to be childlike in appearance,” the documents read.

“At the time of writing this decision, there was no indication as to whether Crown would be approving charges.”

Harks is also subject to conditions imposed by the court in March 2014 that prohibit her from attending facilities including daycare centres, school grounds or playgrounds. She is also banned from using a computer system for the purpose of communicating with a person under the age of 14.

Harks has undergone gender reassignment, and legally changed her name sometime between April 2010 and August 2012.

Trans Students Vote to Ban Police from Pride

Super duper bigoted police raise a pride flag

A student union in Manchester have voted to ban police cause ‘muh transphobia’ and ‘muh sex work’

Transgender students have voted to try and block police from attending Pride events – branding them racist, classist and transphobic.

A battle on the issue took place at the National Union of Students transgender conference last week.

Students voted to pass the motion  ‘No Pride in the Police’, submitted by University of Manchester Students Union.

The motion vowed to “support and organise actions against police presence at Prides” because “many trans people have faced mistreatment and violence at the hands of the police”.

It resolved “to encourage Prides to not have a police presence as part of parades, especially Pride events organised by students unions”.

The motion explained: “The police disproportionately target trans people, along with sex workers, working class communities and communities of colour for policing, leading to an increase in those groups in the prison population.”

A further motion approved by the conference backed the “abolition of prisons” – apparently calling for all prisoners in the UK to be freed and released into the community.

Time to remove the T.
