Transgender woman Chrishaun 'CeCe' McDonald sentenced to 42 months in men's prison

Last year a 24-year-old transgender woman, Chrishaun ‘CeCe’ McDonald, was arrested for killing a man who harassed her with racial and homophobic slurs. McDonald plead guilty to manslaughter in order to avoid a murder charge. ColorLines reported McDonald received 41 months in a male prison. CeCe fans spray painted “Free CeCe” on the wall of the jail Minneapolis. The courts decision to put McDonald  in a male prison has brought light to the threat of sexual and physical violence to transgenders within the prison system.

CeCe McDonald, the young black transgender woman who accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to second-degree manslaughter last month will be incarcerated by the state of Minnesota as a male. McDonald was arrested after she stabbed a white male who was part of a group of that physically and verbally attacked her with transgender and racial slurs.

The plea agreement calls for a sentence of three years and five months in prison, according to the Star Tribune.

Upon sentencing, McDonald, 24, will be taken into custody by the state Department of Corrections and housed as a male “because he is being housed as a male with Hennepin County,” corrections spokeswoman Sarah Russell told the Star Tribune on Monday. “We will intake him as a male at St. Cloud prison.”
