Convicted wife-killer Michelle Kosilek will have to wait a bit longer to learn if his taxpayer-funded sex-change surgery can commence.
The controversial procedure has been postponed, a federal judge ruled today, until the states appeal of the operation is decided. The Patrick administration appealed the surgery to the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.
U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf told Department of Correction lawyers today he is putting the brakes on the entire matter because once the surgery is over, theres no going back if the appeals court rules in favor of the state.
Kosilek, formerly known as Robert Kosilek, is living as a woman at the all-male MCI-Norfolk state prison.
A Dec. 19 hearing was also set today in federal court in Boston to hear demands from Kosileks lawyers for $800,000-plus in legal fees.
Kosilek legally changed his name to Michelle two decades ago. He is serving life without the possibility of parole for the 1990 strangulation of his 36-year-old wife, Cheryl Kosilek. Hormone treatments have enabled him to develop breasts. He briefly received electrolysis treatments in 2008.
Wolf remarked in his September decision that Kosilek is a man who truly believes that he is a female cruelly trapped in a male body. He found the Department of Correction violated Kosileks Eighth Amendment right to be protected from cruel and unusual punishment.

“Cons sex-change surgery stopped’
Hopefully in the middle of the procedure........
Give him a razor blade and a box of bandaids!
No his wife’s body was cruelly trapped in the trunk of her car.
Do you support sex-change surgery for Michelle Kosilek?
1% - I may disagree, but yes. The court ruled
10% - No. His health is not threatened
89% - No. Crazy it ever got this far to begin with.
He strangled his wife. Obviously he is a monster...and this is how he’s getting his attention now. What fools we are for indulging these freaks....even a little bit.
Just 100 years ago, people like this were committed or killed by mobs. Now they’re allowed to murder their wives, live off taxpayer money in a cushy jail cell AND get their genitals hacked off.
My great-grandparents are rolling in their graves!
Some guys will do anything to have conjugal visits with ladies.

Cheryl Kosilek, brutally murdered by her transgendered husband
>>SEPT. 2012: Background Story: Cheryl Kosilek came home one night in 1990 to find her husband Robert Kosilek dressed in her clothes. A fight ensued which ended when he garroted her, near to beheading. He then put her body in the trunk of her car and left it in a shopping mall.
He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
The story doesnt end there. Robert Kosilek sued the state to provide him with transgender surgery because of his identity crisis.
If he has the surgery, which could cost taxpayers as much as $20,000, he will be housed with WOMEN.
U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf has ordered the surgery. Transgender groups see this as a great victory and appear to have little regard for the women he will be housed with in prison. Nor do they seem to have any regard for the family of the murder victim or for the taxpayers who will have to foot this bill.
Senator Scott Brown is trying to help the victims family fight this outrageous use of taxpayer money.
>>Sorry but your argument is not shared by most rational people, including most in the Trans community. Michelle Koslinek (sic) gave up her (sic) rights to live as she wanted when she (ditto) was convicted of murder. The fact is that many transsexuals are forced to live without gender surgery because they can't afford it. They manage to survive in spite of the body dysphoria.
>>While gender reassignment surgery may help Michelle Kosnilek to feel better,it is not a life threatening medical issue and therefore the tax payers should not be forced to pay the bill. This is also setting a precedent that is dangerous. Are the tax payers going to have to start paying for bariatric surgery or other cosmetic procedures because the prisoner feels depressed and unhappy with their body? Are the tax payers going to be required to pay for years of Koslinek's )(sic) electrolysis, breast augmentation, facial feminzation surgery, hair transplants, scalp reduction and whatever else she feels is necessary for her to transition effectively? Transitioning can cost well over $100,000. Gender Reassignment surgery is just the start. I wonder how much the tax payers have already paid for her hormone therapy and psychiatric care? Seriously, this borders on insanity and I'm glad that both Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren have the common sense to say so.
>>By the way, I'm a post-op TS myself. I understand Gender Conflict. I waited until I was 55 y.o, before I could have SRS and I did not commit suicide. I think Koslinek is a manipulating the system and I'm not buying it. Letting her live as a female and giving her hormones seems more than compassionate.
Put him in a cell with Bubba and Slasher Sam. Give Sam a dull knife and the problem is solved.
The women he will be housed with will have little regard for him.
“U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf told Department of Correction lawyers today he is putting the brakes on the entire matter because once the surgery is over, theres no going back if the appeals court rules in favor of the state.”
Why not? Just put it on ice and re-attach if he loses.
>> Just put it on ice and re-attach if he loses.
Yes, in a procedure called an “add-a-dick-to-me” :)
