Rapist will NOT get joint custody of boy who was conceived when he attacked the child’s mother when she was 12 …

A judge has backtracked on a joint custody order given to a sex offender who impregnated a woman after raping her.

Christopher Mirasolo, from Brown City, Michigan, was granted joint legal custody and parenting time of an eight-year-old boy after a paternity test confirmed he was the father.

But yesterday Sanilac County Judge Gregory Ross ruled the 27-year-old did not have any parental rights towards the boy after his mother’s attorney sought protection under the federal Rape Survivor Child Custody Act.

Judge rescinds order granting rapist custody of child – USA Today

SANDUSKY, Mich. — A Michigan judge has ordered that a rapist will not have custody or parental rights to the boy he fathered with a 12-year-old girl nine years ago. 

Sanilac County Judge Gregory Ross had signed a paternity order on Sept. 22 naming Christopher Mirasolo as the father of the boy. Mirasolo was ordered to pay child support and was granted joint custody and parenting time.

When it became public the boy was conceived through rape, public outcry was widespread. About 100 people gathered on the courthouse lawn in protest Tuesday. 

In his decision rescinding the order, which he read in court Tuesday, Ross wrote: “The question that everyone is asking is ‘How could a judge do such a thing?’

“The answer is that this judge was

Rapist granted joint custody of victim’s child called back to court …

SANDUSKY, Mich. — A hearing is scheduled in Michigan on a judge’s order that initially gave a convicted sex offender joint legal custody of a child born to a woman who said the man raped her when she was 12.

Attorneys representing the woman and 27-year-old Christopher Mirasolo are to appear Tuesday afternoon before Judge Gregory Ross in Sanilac County.

In September, Ross granted the woman sole physical custody and Mirasolo joint legal custody after DNA tests showed he was the child’s father. But a court spokesman has said the judge didn’t know Mirasolo had two criminal sexual conduct convictions, including one concerning the woman.

In Michigan, joint legal custody enables both parents to share decision-making authority about a child’s welfare.
