A CHILD rapist serving 20 years at HMP Albany has been charged with attacking a prison officer.

Robert Ormrod was jailed at Liverpool Crown Court in 2016.

The paedophile now identifies as a woman, Rebecca Louise Ormrod.

The 49-year-old is charged with assault on an emergency worker on June 8.

The case was heard at the Isle of Wight Magistrates' Court today (Friday) and has been adjourned for two weeks, until December 17.

Ormrod was jailed after subjecting a young girl to a campaign of rape and said she would be drowned if she spoke out.
