Paedophile Jeffrey Anderson released claiming a sex change makes her less likely to reoffend

A paedophile who abused two six-year-old boys she was babysitting has been released from prison after claiming a sex change made her less likely to re-offend.

Jeffrey Terrence Anderson, 34, who now identifies as a woman after taking taxpayer-funded sex-change hormones in prison, was jailed in 2008 for horrific crimes against children.

This includes having sex with a 12-year-old when she was just 19, as well as abusing two young boys she was babysitting.

She was released from prison on Tuesday on a court-imposed supervision order - despite the Brisbane Supreme Court admitting it wasn't 'ideal' she rejoin society.

Anderson claims to identify as a woman and started taking sex-change hormones while behind bars.

Since her incarceration, Anderson - who was referred to as Ms Rose in court - was found to have pictures of children inside her cell.

Guards also stumbled across a shocking three-page story written by Anderson detailing fantasies of having sex with a three-year-old, The Sunshine Coast Daily reported.

Psychologist Luke Hatzipetrou said Anderson's belief she wouldn't re-offend was 'not supported'.

'Anderson's belief that the risk of re-offending would be mitigated by becoming a woman is not supported and somewhat naive,' he said.

'The fact that child images have been found in his possession as recently as November 2017 indicates that there is an ongoing preoccupation with children.'

The court said over the past two years Anderson had become 'more emotionally stable and secure'. 

The 34-year-old will remain on the supervision order for ten years and is prohibited from having contact with children. 

But a complete control plan is not in place, the Courier Mail reported, despite warnings Anderson is a risk to children.
