Now here is a defense that you would not have seen just a couple decades ago. Sarah Fowke, 23, was stopped attempting to use someone else’s ski pass at a Colorado ski resort. Ski officials noticed that the pass was for a man named Nicholas Hemstreet and Fowke explained that she was originally a man but had completed a series of sex change operations.
>Fowke could recall “her” birthdate and middle initial but was a bit slow on details. She then volunteered the telephone number of Hemstreet father and explained that her parents disowned her after her sex change operation. The police took her up on the offer and called Hemstreet’s father who was quite surprised to hear about his son’s decision to become a woman.
Hemstreet later called the police to say that he had given his pass to his girlfriend, Fowke.
Fowke was charged with theft over $500 and criminal impersonation. They do say that, over time, couples tend to look more and more like each other.
