A Colorado bit off a little more than he could chew, when he tried to perform a surgery on a Transgender woman, in an attempt to remove her testicles.
Like any seasoned doctor, the first thing he did was prep his medical kit, so James Lowell Pennington, aged 57, got out his Army surgical kit.
Although that is not an ideal method for castration, but he was very confident as to the success of his 90 minute procedure. The wife of the transgender woman watched as Powell sutured the opening and removed the testicles.
911 was not called immediately after the surgery was performed, so the testicles could not be attached.
Pennington is now being jailed under the suspicion of first degree assault as well as for causing serious bodily harm. He is in jail without bond.
On Saturday, no one answered the jail telephone, so it is not clear as to whether or not Pennington has a lawyer. The phone number listed under his name also went unanswered.
Police say a Colorado man without a medical license has been arrested after he allegedly used an Army surgical kit to castrate a transgender woman at her Denver apartment. A police affidavit says James Lowell Pennington, 57, removed the testicles and sutured the opening while the woman’s wife witnessed the 90-minute procedure. The wife called 911 about three hours later when blood poured from the incision. The affidavit says the testicles could not have been reattached because of the lag between the procedure and the 911 call. Pennington was arrested Thursday on suspicion of first degree assault causing serious bodily injury and is jailed without bond. It was unclear whether Pennington has a lawyer. No one answered the jail telephone Saturday. A phone number listed for Pennington rang unanswered.
