The state's department of corrections told NJ.com that the women had engaged in "consensual sexual relationships with another incarcerated person".


The incident took place at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility in Union Township, approximately 16 miles west of New York City.



The transgender prisoner, 27-year-old Demi Minor, who is serving 30 years for manslaughter, has been transferred to a different prison for young adults.


It has been reported that Minor was one of 27 transgender women being held at the Edna Mahan Correctional Facility.


Last year, New Jersey caused quite a stir when it introduced a policy allowing prisoners to be housed according to their self-proclaimed sexual identity.


This decision was made after the state was sued by a transgender prisoner who was being held in a men's prison. The American Civil Liberties Union backed the decision.


The New Jersey Corrections Department said that as a result of the pregnancies they were now reviewing the policy for housing transgender prisoners with the intention of "implementing minor modifications."



In a statement, a spokesperson said that accommodation decisions "are made within the parameters of the settlement agreement which requires considering of gender identity and the health and safety of the individual."
