A 28-year-old transgender woman is charged with raping a minor.
According to court documents, Aliea Rose Brown, who used to go by Albert Allen Brown, identifies a woman but is still legally a man.
Brown had been living with a 15-year-old girl’s family and was involved in a sexual relationship with the girl. The girl’s mother and mother’s boyfriend were allegedly aware of the relationship.
Brown is a registered sex offender for having sex with a 10-year-old during the early 2000s. Brown was approximately 12 years old at the time and was still identifying as a male.
Brown was later suspended from Belgrade High School in 2007 when school officials found out he was a registered sex offender.
Brown transitioned genders sometime after 2007. According to Brown’s profile on the state’s offenders list, she is from Manhattan.
Brown has been living with the girl, the girl’s brother, mother and mother’s boyfriend in Belgrade.
