Robert Kosilek was convicted of murdering his wife in the early 90's in Massachusetts. He was convicted of deliberate and premeditated murder of his wife with extreme atrocity or cruelty by a jury of his peers. In other words if the State of Massachusetts had Capital Punishment he would have been most likely received a sentence of Death.
He garroted his wife with a piece of wire and ripped her cloths off, He then stuffed her body in the trunk of her car and drove to a Mall lot and left it there. The next day he called police and claimed his wife was missing. Mr. Kosilek was a transvestite and the murder was part of his scheme to start living full-time as a woman. He wanted access to their joint bank account so he buy cloths and makeup and a day or so after her grizzly murder he withdrew a lot of money and went on a spree buying women's cloths, jewelry and makeup. When police came to arrest him he was dressed as a woman.
At his trial he dressed as a woman and it took the jury less than 3 1/2 hours to find him guilty of first degree murder and he was sentenced to life without parole. Basically only a serial killer gets that stiff a sentence in liberal Massachusetts so the circumstances were egregious.
Mr. Kosilek started claiming he was transsexual and a woman trapped in a man's body from early on and managed to con a Psychiatrist into believing him while in jail and thus was diagnosed with Gender Identity Disorder along with the fact he was a sociopath with no remorse over killing his wife because he saw it as a means to his desired cross-dressing fantasy.
He began suing the State for hormone treatments and the Liberal Massachusetts District Court agreed and he actually received hormones and I believe electrolysis at State expense. He began demanding a sex change and today a Chief US District Judge ordered the State of Massachusetts to provide said operation.
Mr. Kosilek currently resides in the general population of an all male prison where rumor has it he is a very popular bunk mate and never has to worry about being physically constipated or anally retentive. Basically this piece of shit murdered his wife to cross-dress and then memorized his narrative and conned the State of Massachusetts. The minute he learned of the use of the term Transgender he immediately described himself as transgender.
Mr. Kosilek is rather hideous looking so maybe he should up the ante and demand Full Facial feminization. Come on lets think big Mr. Kosilek. If you can kill your wife and get the state to fulfill your fantasy maybe you can convince them to leave you in the all male prison so you can be the general populations most popular "gurl". The claim is he actually tried self castration with a shoe string while in jail and the requisite suicide. Ironically, wink, wink, neither attempt was successful which is kind of ironic because nobody really gives a shit if you off yourself or mutilate yourself at that prison. How convenient.
Lost in all of this hoopla is the 36 year old woman called Cheryl that he murdered. By all accounts she was a beautiful woman but I am betting the wife was a hindrance to his cross-dressing. One must remember it is not "fair" to prevent a linebacker en femme to attend a Phillies game because it is his unalienable right to make a spectacle of himself. I guess it is Mr. Losilek's unalienable right to murder a woman and then force the State to make him a woman. How convenient.
My suggestion would be take the money they are spending on this despicable asshole and give it to some person in the State of Massachusetts that actually needs SRS regardless of who they are. Have a drawing or talk to doctors but help a deserving person.
I am going to very interested in how the Commonwealth of Massachusetts responds to this. They should appeal but then Massachusetts is incredibly liberal.
I have to add that I am not opposed to helping inmates in for less serious crimes begin the process or continue the process because many of us end up in illicit situations in order to make a living even today. I am not in favor of providing sex changes for inmates unless the state provides them for everyone that requires one that is not in jail.
This is a case where the punishment fit the crime and then the criminal made the State fit his fantasy. I have always been ambivalent about the death penalty because too often the minorities are executed and the others can afford a defense that at least takes them off death row and besides life in prison is really cruel punishment and it is deserved and is not cruel and unusual punishment unless of course you are Mr. Kosilek and murdered your wife.
The murder of his wife seems to have been lost in the noise and sometimes the victim deserves justice and true justice would be denial of said operation.
