Florida Woman Sues Jail Because They Thought She Was Man; How The Mix Up Occurred

Fior Pichardo di Veloz was booked in jail as a man after guards didn’t believe she was transgender per VLAD TV.

Pichardo traveled to Miami n 2013 to witness the birth of her grandchild when she was arrested for drug charges that she wasn’t aware of. She was booked as a woman but after being transferred she was classified as a man. As one can imagine Pichardo was furious about the situation especially after a nurse was seen writing transgender male parts, female tendencies, without conducting any formal exam. The nurse apparently saw Pichardo take hormone pills, but was also explicitly told by the woman that she wasn’t a man.

Pichardo is now suing for negligence, including cruel and unusual punishment.
