Child sex attackers Crawley and Bexhill sentenced to prison

A trans woman who sexually abused children in a trailer by the sea was sent to a women’s prison for two decades despite not having a gender-recognition certificate.

It took the jury at Lewes Crown Court 17.5 hours to find Sally Dixon, 58, guilty on 30 counts of indecent assault or indecency with a child.

Dixon will serve 20 years in prison for crimes all committed before the year 2000.

Dixon’s youngest victim was just seven years old at the time.

Ryan Richter for the Crown described a campaign of insults against two boys and five girls.

“The defendant, living as a man in the late ’80s and ’90s, was a brazen and callous sex offender,” he told the court.

“He exploited young men and nurtured a toxic relationship with female children whom he systematically abused throughout their childhood.”

His honorary judge, Mark Van Der Zwart, told Dixon she committed horrific sexual offenses against seven children as a man.

Sally Anne Dixon was born John Stephen Dixon in 1963. Dixon was sentenced to six months in prison for sexually abusing a teenager in 1997 and transferred in 2004.

Sussex Police have reopened their investigation into his previous offense in 2019 following a new complaint from another victim.

One woman said her childhood abuse made her constantly anxious.

“I was hoping, for once, that he would do the right thing and not take me to court, but he didn’t,” she said.

“He’s a coward who didn’t testify. He was happy to put us through it, but not himself.”

Dixon lived in Crawley and Bexhill where he fixed televisions and worked as a DJ in bars, clubs and a trailer park.

He abused the children in a locked garage and in a trailer on the south coast.

Dixon was sentenced to nine consecutive terms with two one-year licenses renewed and will serve at least 12 years in prison before being eligible for parole.

Dixon, who did not have a gender recognition certificate, will serve 20 years in a women’s prison for crimes between 1989 and 1996. The certificate is required for trans people to change their birth certificate.
