The Sun. A MUM arrested in front of her kids for calling a transgender woman a man is to face court for trolling.
Kate Scottow, 38, is accused of making malicious communications on social media about campaigner Stephanie Hayden.
Earlier in the year the mum, from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, was detained at home and locked in cell after allegedly referring to Ms Hayden, a transgender rights activist, as a man.
A CPS spokesperson said: “We made the decision to charge Katherine Scottow after reviewing a file of evidence from Hertfordshire Police relating to social media posts.
“The Crown Prosecution Service reminds all concerned that criminal proceedings against Ms Scottow are now active and that she has a right to a fair trial.
“It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”
Mrs Scottow will face magistrates in Stevenage on September 18, after being charged last month.
