On November 8, Nikita Dragun appeared before a Bond Court virtually.

The proceeding tape shows Dragun taken to the male section of the correctional facility.

Nikita Dragun is a trans woman.

During the bail hearing, she asked Judge Mindy Glazer if she should still stay in the men’s unit.

“Yeah, I don’t make the rules up there,” Glazer responded.

Nikita Dragun is no longer in jail after a $5,000 bond.


Jack Ketsoyan, Dragun’s press officer, released a statement to Miami’s Local 10 News saying:

“The situation with Nikita, who is legally female, being placed in a men’s unit of a Florida jail is extremely disturbing and dangerous.”

“This decision made by the Miami-Dade County Corrections Department directly violates their protocol, which mandates that transgender inmates are classified and housed based on safety needs and gender identity.”

“Nikita has been released and is now safe. Thank you for respecting her privacy during this time.”

Meanwhile, a representative of the Miami-Dade prison system also released a statement denying the allegations.

“All inmates undergoing our intake process remain in an open seating (open booking) area, in the presence of correction staff,” said the rep.

“Additionally, inmate Dragun was placed in a holding cell by herself due to her high profile status before being released.”

“She was escorted by an LGBTQ officer during her time at the corrections facility.”
