Bail Bonds and Gender Benders: What to do When the Dude Looks Like a Lady

Getting thrown in jail is one thing, but getting mistaken for a man when you are a woman is the ultimate insult.  That is the topic of today’s bail bond blog post.

This past week in Florida, a 50 year old woman was taken into custody for possession of cocaine.  The woman was caught at the Miami-Dade International airport carrying the stash.  During processing, the woman was examined by a nurse and was found to have male sexual reproductive organs.”  Based on that information, the nurse wrote male on the report even though the arrest record said female.  The mix up got even worse when the woman was placed in the general male population at the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department.  Luckily the mistake was noticed before any physical harm had come to the woman.  The woman was re-examined by two nurses later on and it was determined that she was truly a woman.  Read the original story below.
