A transgender has today been convicted of raping two vulnerable women while living as a man.
Isla Bryson was known as Adam Graham when she carried out the violent sex attacks in 2016 and 2019 after attacking the victims she originally met online.
The 31 year-old – who claimed to have had gender issues since the age of four but began transitioning from a man to a woman in 2020 – had denied the accusations. She told jurors any sex was consensual although insisted she did not like sleeping with women.
The first woman recalled repeatedly stating ‘no’ as her ‘muscular’ attacker raped her when the then man got into bed beside her in 2016. The second woman was raped at a flat when they were planning to watch the film Mean Girls in 2019.
Bryson was today found guilty of the two rape charges following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow. She denied the charges, saying in evidence she ‘would never hurt another human being’.
Bryson had been on bail, but was today remanded in custody by judge…
