A biological male from Wyoming who identifies as a transgender woman is now on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in a women’s bathroom.
The criminal trial for Miguel Martinez, who goes by the name Michelle, began Monday.
Martinez allegedly invited a little girl into the bathroom with him, where he violated the girl’s breasts and genitalia before beginning to rape her.
In a gut-wrenching testimonial, the 10 year-old girl later told police that “it hurt inside” and that she started to cry, the Casper Star Tribune reported.

Nurses at a nearby medical center “completed a sexual assault exam and found redness and abrasions on the girl’s genitalia,” according to the Gazette’s report.
Local media reports described Martinez as a “family friend” of the 10-year-old victim.
Martinez told police that the girl had been “talking crap” and dismissed the accusations as a “publicity stunt,” according to local reports.
Martinez faces charges of one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.
The trial is expected to last four days, according to the Billings Gazette.
Should transgender citizens be forced to prove they’re biologically fit to use the bathroom they think they belong in?
