A 27-year-old transgender woman who is incarcerated at a women’s jail in New Jersey, has been shifted to another facility. She allegedly impregnated two female inmates earlier this year.

Last month, Demi Minor, who is serving a 30-year sentence for manslaughter, was transferred from the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Clinton to Garden State Youth Correctional Facility. It is a prison for young adult offenders located in Burlington County, Dan Sperrazza, a spokesman for New Jersey Department of Corrections (NJDOC), told NJ.com. Currently, Minor is the only woman incarcerated at the facility and was placed in the vulnerable unit, Sperrazza said.

Sperrazza previously said that that it appeared two women at Edna Mahan became pregnant after "consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person," reported Fox News.

Meanwhile, Minor complained that she was misgendered and abused by guards during the move, reported Daily Mail. Minor, who is eligible for parole in 2037, was placed on suicide watch after she tried to hang herself while she was being transferred. In her blog post, she claimed that she was targeted by correctional officers. One of them allegedly mocked her when she asked to be stripped searched by a woman.

She also claimed she was beaten during the transfer, and said that she was briefly held at New Jersey State Prison, where guards allegedly called her "a he" more than 30 times.

The department of corrections said that it is looking into the allegations. A statement read that the department has "zero tolerance for abuse, and the safety and security of the incarcerated population and staff are of critical importance."

As for Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, it has faced many sex assault scandals. Last year, Governor Phil Murphy announced plans to shutter the facility, which is New Jersey’s only women’s prison. Last year, New Jersey enacted a policy, which was mandated to remain in effect for at least one year, to allow inmates to be housed according to their gender identity.

It was done after a lawsuit was brought forth by a trans inmate who lived in men’s prisons for 18 months. Sperrazza said that while the NJDOC continues to operate under the policy, "the department is currently reviewing the policy for housing transgender incarcerated persons with the intention of implementing minor modifications."
