Transgender woman has rape charges dropped after chasing taxi driver in ‘comical scenes’

Published

A transgender woman accused of raping a man has had charges against her dropped. A court was told that Katie Brannen, 25, chased a taxi driver round his car in ‘almost comical’ scenes because she couldn’t run in her high-heels while drunk.

The case can only be reported now after Brannen pleaded guilty to a public order offence. Brannen got into an argument with a taxi driver outside Magic Flame, a takeaway in Newcastle city centre. Brennan, who has a history of making off without payment, initially refused to leave the cab but eventually got out.

Prosecutor Julie Clemitson told the court: ‘She got back in at some point and ultimately ended up, in an almost comical fashion, given that she was intoxicated and wearing high heels, chasing the taxi driver around his taxi. ‘There was some sort of physical contact. What took place was largely ineffectual.’

Judge Paul Sloan QC sentenced Brannen to a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered her to pay £100 costs. The court heard she had served three months either in custody or on a tagged curfew while the case progressed through the courts, which is the equivalent of a six-month jail term. Judge Sloan told her: ‘At a time when you were in drink you became involved in an unpleasant altercation with a taxi driver.

‘In reality, you have served a very significant custodial sentence, indeed a longer sentence than would normally have been imposed for this offence.’ Gavin Doig, defending, said: ‘Miss Brannen must stop getting herself intoxicated and coming into dispute with people in the street or in taxis. ‘This was an unfortunate incident.

She has already served more than the maximum.’ The court heard Brannen has previous convictions for 42 offences including public order, being drunk and disorderly and making off without payment.
