Woman in Britain poses as man to have sex with teenage girls, including one who feared she became pregnant BY David Boroff NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, March 23, 2016, 3:52 PM Avon and Somerset Police Dept Jennifer Staines pleaded guilty to sexual assault and two counts of possessing indecent photos. A woman in Britain posed as a man to have sex with teenage girls — deceiving them to such a degree that one of the victims believed she may be pregnant. Jennifer Staines, who pretended to be Jason Spiller, convinced at least three victims and their families that she was a man, the Bristol Post reported. The 23-year-old Staines had sex with the girls by touching them but not allowing them to touch "him," according to the newspaper. Staines had to hide when using toilets when they were on vacation. She used condoms and had a rubber penis in her possession. Staines would never take his clothes off and wore a chest bandage, the newspaper reported. The teens were 13, 17 and 17 when they were victimized by Staines. "You did everything to ensure you had the ability to engage in relationships in which they believed you were a gender you were not," Judge Barry Cotter said as he sentenced her to 39 months in jail, according to the Bristol Press. "I can't determine whether it was for love, love and sex, or just sex." All three of the victims described relations with Staines as "normal," prosecutor Fiona Elder said, according to the newspaper. Staines initially interacted with the 13-year-old girl on social media. "She found Jason a helpful and sympathetic ear," Elder said. "They became closer. They got together as girlfriend and boyfriend." Staines, as Jason, always wore a hat when speaking with the young victim by webcam, according to the paper. Eventually Staines, as Spiller, came to Bristol and stayed with her for five days, according to the newspaper. One of the 17-year-old victims went to the doctor because she believed she might be pregnant. "His T-shirt was always kept on and his boxer shorts were always kept on during sex, which occurred some 15 times," Elder told the court. The third teen, also at 17, was five years younger than Staines when she was victimized. Staines is suffering from gender dysphoria, her lawyer says, and is now in a lesbian relationship. "The behavior demonstrated by Jennifer Staines was behaviour which was motivated not by desire for sex," Stephen Mooney told the court, according to the paper. "It was a desire for love and affection." Staines, of Preston, pleaded guilty to sexual assault and possessing indecent photos.
