Convicted rapist won't seek custody of victim's child: lawyer

Convicted rapist won't seek custody of victim's child: lawyer

"The order is clear that, if the mother does not want the father to have visitation, she does not have to provide it".

The woman went to the Sanilac County Prosecutor's Office to complete, and sign, a paternity questionnaire, in which she disclosed the father's name, Christopher Mirasolo, and address. As the "Detroit News" says, Judge Ross was not available to comment on the rationale behind his decision.

It emerged earlier this week that the Sanilac County Prosecutor's Office had signed an order awarding joint custody of the boy to Mirasolo last month.

Mirasolo was awarded custody after DNA testing established paternity of the child, and it was only prompted after the county surveyed the victim regarding child support she had received for the past year. Any deal, however, would need to be approved by Prosecuting Attorney James Young before being finalized, she said.

"I have it right here, '" said Rebecca Kiessling, the victim's attorney. In Michigan, joint legal custody enables both parents to share decision-making authority about a child's welfare.

But Mirasolo's lawyer, Barbara Yockey, has now said he never sought access to the child, according to the Detroit Free Press. "No one ever even conferred with the Plaintiff regarding the 'consent judgment, ' she did not sign the 'consent judgment, ' nor was the Plaintiff afforded legal representation in the matter".

In September 2008, when Mirasolo was 18 years old, he sexually assaulted the then-12-year-old and threatened to kill her.

Kiessling filed objections Friday with Ross.

Now, the victim is asking for assistance through Right to Life of MI and Kiessling, who co-founded Hope After Rape Conception. He was never properly charged and should be sitting behind bars somewhere, but the system is victimizing my client, who was a child herself when this all happened'. It was during that time that he had allegedly raped her.

"In fact, the day she was raped, they didn't make an arrest".

There he allegedly kept them captive for two days in an empty house before finally releasing the 13-year-old in a park.

Kiessling said Mirasolo later attacked another teenage girl and served four more years.

Kiessling has called for a "full investigation" into the Sanilac County Prosecutor's Office over Mirasolo being recently granted custody of the child - nine years after he pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree criminal sexual conduct in the 2008 assault.

The next hearing is set for the end of the month.

Mirasolo, a Brown City resident, is on parole until July of 2018 for another third-degree criminal sexual conduct conviction involving a child age 13-15, according to the Michigan Department of Corrections.
