A trans woman in the United Kingdom tried to frame their ex-boyfriend by logging onto his Facebook account and contacting the known teenager “decoy” account of a group that seeks out pedophiles.
Amy Gray, 37, used their ex-boyfriend’s Facebook account to contact a “14-year-old girl” Gray knew to be a decoy account created by a vigilante group that confronts pedophiles, the Daily Mail reported. Gray also used the ex-boyfriend’s new partner’s name when communicating with the decoy in order to get them in trouble, too. Gray apparently told police officers that it would be a “bonus” for the new partner to get falsely branded a pedophile as well.
Gray had helped their ex-boyfriend create his Facebook profile, prosecutors said in court. Gray’s ex-boyfriend was already on the sex offender registry, and Gray was convicted three times for sexual assault while living as a man in 2005. Gray started living as a woman a year after those convictions.
