Worcester, Worcestershire – A 22-year-old repeat child rapist who identifies as transgender was recently arrested on charges of violating a sexual harm prevention order.
Christopher Worton raped a 13-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl, and pleaded guilty to five counts of rape in 2014.
At the time, he was remanded to a youth detention facility. Mr. Worton must also abide by a sexual harm prevention order, which forbids him from coming into contact with children.
Three years after his conviction for child rape, Mr. Worton declared himself a woman, and gave himself the feminine name Zoe Lynes.
On a snowy day, Mr. Worton decided to go see an old friend. He would later claim through his lawyer that it was his intention to see whether his friend “needed any basic essentials from the shop.”
However, the friend did not expect Mr. Worton that day. According to the friend, whose sister and toddler son were present in the home at the time of Mr. Worton’s visit, the convicted pedophile was aware before arrival that children live in the home.
Mr. Worton’s friend spoke to him for a few seconds in the doorway. Upon departure, Mr. Worton waved at the two children, who were inside the home.
Mr. Worton was ordered to pay a £93 fine, a £30 victim surcharge and £135 in court costs.
