A TRANSSEXUAL who breached a criminal anti-social behaviour order by swearing and spitting at bouncers has been given an electronic curfew tag.

Kim Eaton-Goode, aged 47, of Infimary Walk, off Castle Street, Worcester, admitted breaching her Crasbo when she appeared before magistrates.

Matt Dodson, prosecuting, said Goode was out with friends in the city on June 10. At about 11pm she was refused entry to Bar 12, in the Cornmarket.

Mr Dodson said Goode abused bouncers and made obscene suggestions about their sexual preferences.

“There were people walking past and customers in the bar at the time,” Mr Dodson said.

“She then spat in the direction of the door staff and left the scene.”

Goode was monitored by CCTV cameras and arrested near to her home.

In interviews she admitted swearing at the staff.

The court was told Goode was subjected to a two-year Crasbo on March 25 which prohibits her from behaving in a way which causes harassment, alarm or distress.

Mark Lister, defending, said his client was well known in Worcester and was an easy target.

He said: “Following the verbal argument she didn’t stay and make the situation worse. She realised this was something she shouldn’t be doing and walked away. In the past it may well have escalated.

“She is a transsexual, she sticks out like a sore thumb in this community and is somewhat of an easy target.

“I’m not saying door staff should be subjected to this sort of behaviour but it is part of their job. If everyone who swore at a doorman was brought before the court there would be a queue going down the street.”

Mr Lister said Goode was complying with a supervison order and making good progress.

Goode was given a 12-week curfew from 6pm to 6am and ordered to pay £85 costs. Her Crasbo and community order will continue.

Chairman of the bench Heather Osbourne said: “We have heard you are making good progress on your community order and walked away from the situation but this was a particularly unpleasant offence, witnessed by members of the public.”
