California pays inmate’s sex change

SACRAMENTO, California – A 57-year-old convicted killer serving a life sentence in California became the first US inmate to receive state-funded sex-reassignment surgery, the prisoner’s attorneys confirmed Friday to The Associated Press.

California prison officials agreed in August 2015 to pay for the surgery for Shiloh Heavenly Quine, who was convicted of first-degree murder, kidnapping, and robbery for ransom and has no possibility of parole. (AP)
