Pride ‘joker’ groped tranny
A JOKING female reveller was arrested for asking to squeeze the breasts of a transgender woman.
Rebecca Maund, 31, trapped the woman in a bear hug on a busy street before asking if she could touch her body.
Maund pleaded guilty to sexual assault after cornering her victim during a Gay Pride weekend in Cardiff.
The prosecutor said: “The assault was based on the victim’s trans identity. It’s effectively treating someone as someone you can sexually assault because they are transgender.”
The victim said she felt “shocked and upset” at the assault.
Maund’s defence described her actions as a “joke” and “bravado”.
JPs sentenced Maund to five months, suspended one-and-a-half years.
