He was THIS Close!
It must make serving time a lot less dull…
A convicted marijuana grower has told prison authorities he is a man – after spending more than eight months locked up with women.
An inquiry has been launched after Billie Jo Hawks told wardens at Kentucky’s Correctional Institution for Women that a mistake had been made.
For eight months before that, Hawks, 43, had been held in the women’s section of a detention centre having been convicted of growing and trafficking marijuana.
He was then transfered to the jail, and it wasn’t until he faced a medical examination that he alerted wardens of the error.
I bet there are some red faces in the Corrections department, and it isn’t Mary Kay blush.
