Transgender Ax Attacker Is Attacked in Jail: Women Prisoners want her moved to Men's Jail
DAILY MAIL REPORTS
A transgender woman jailed for attacking three people with an axe at a 7-Eleven was attacked in prison after inmates demanded she be moved to a men's prison.
Sydney woman Evie Amati, 26, was sentenced to nine years jail after being found guilty of two counts of wounding with intent to murder and one count of attempted wounding with intent to murder.
Amati was taken to the Mary Wade Women's Correctional Centre but was attacked by other inmates who wanted her moved to a male-only jail, news.com.au reported.
The revelation came as an appeal against her nine year sentence, with a minimum of four-and-a-half years, was brought before the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal.
Crown barrister Maria Cinque slammed the sentence as unjust and launched an appeal to increase it.
He described the sentence as 'so manifestly inadequate that it is an affront to the administration of justice'.
