Michigan rapist gets joint custody
MICHIGAN – A Sanilac County Circuit judge has granted parenting time and joint legal custody of an 8-year-old boy to a convicted sex offender who allegedly raped the child’s mother nine years ago. Christopher Mirasolo, 27, of Brown City was awarded joint legal custody by Judge Gregory S. Ross after DNA testing established paternity of the child, according to the victim’s attorney, Rebecca Kiessling, who is seeking protection under the federal Rape Survivor Child Custody Act. A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 17, 2017 at 1:30pm,. The case, initially reported on “The Steve Gruber Show,” a Lansing-based radio program, is believed the first of its kind in Michigan and possibly the nation. According to the victim and Kiessling, it was prompted after the county surveyed the victim regarding child support she had received this past year. READ MORE HERE
Dreamcatchers for Abused Children is organizing a #VictimsRightsRally to protest this injustice. Join us on October 17, 2017 at the Sanilac County (MI) Courthouse lawn from 12pm-4pm to protest Sanilac County Judge Gregory S. Ross’s decision to award joint custody and parenting rights to a convicted child rapist!
The mother was raped and impregnated at 12-years old by a 19-year old man who should have served a minimum of 25 years to life in prison for 1st degree criminal sexual conduct, but instead only served 6-1/2 months in county jail, and now, a Judge granted her rapist parental rights without a hearing. This is the first known case where the newly passed Rape Survivor Child Custody Act in Michigan will be argued, and demonstrates why a rape conviction should not be necessary to suspend or terminate parental rights.
