A transgender woman has been found guilty of raping two women before transitioning.
Isla Bryson, 31, from Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire, committed the crimes before she transitioned and when she was known by the “dead name” Adam Graham.
Following a six-day trial at the High Court in Glasgow, a jury found Bryson guilty of raping two women: one in Clydebank in 2016 and one in Drumchapel, Glasgow, in 2019.
She met both her victims online, with prosecutors saying she “preyed” on vulnerable women.
Bryson denied the charges, saying in evidence she “would never hurt another human being”.
After less than a day of deliberation, a jury found her guilty of both rape charges.
Addressing Bryson in the dock on Tuesday, judge Lord Scott said: “You have been convicted by the jury of two extremely serious charges; those being charges of rape.”
