A transsexual filed a $5-million suit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, complaining that while she should be treated like a woman she is being forced to serve time in a men's jail. Jacqueline Farrell, 36, was born a male but has undergone a partial sex-change operation, and now considers herself a woman. She was booked into the Sybil Brand Institute for Women on July 2 after her arrest on suspicion of cocaine possession and stealing credit cards.
