Convicted rapist granted bail after allegedly raping another woman

A convicted rapist has been granted bail after allegedly raping another woman that he approached on a busy, public street.

The Geelong man who was previously jailed for targeting a disabled woman is now protected by a court order suppressing where he now lives in the community.

Victims of Crime Commissioner Greg Davies described it as “an extraordinary set of circumstances”.

The man is aged in his sixties, and is living in Geelong on bail while his case proceeds in court.

9NEWS has been prevented from naming or identifying the man because the court imposed a suppression order protecting his identity, his job and where he lives in the community.

The order also suppresses the victim’s identity, even though the identification of victims of sexual assault is automatically prohibited by law in Victoria.

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.

The case started when the 21-year-old mother sought state assistance for

Woman whose rapist was granted joint custody of child speaks out

The woman whose rapist was given joint custody of the child conceived in the attack has spoken out about the “crazy” decision.

A judge in Michigan signed an order allowing twice-convicted rapist Christopher Mirasolo joint custody of the boy – which he had not requested – without the mother’s knowledge after she applied for state benefits.

The woman was 12 when Mirasolo raped her in 2008. A plea deal meant he served less than a year behind bars for third-degree criminal sexual assault, according to US media.

The woman’s lawyer said the order, now put on hold, was “insane”. Rebecca Kiessling told Detroit News: “The judge also restricted the child’s domicile and residence, disclosed the rape victim’s home address to her rapist, and ordered his name on the birth certificate – all without the mother’s consent or any opportunity to be heard.”

Now the victim has spoken

Woman whose rapist was granted joint custody of child speaks out

A local prosecutor and judge in Michigan are under fire for giving a convicted rapist joint legal custody of his victim’s eight-year-old son. Christopher Mirasolo pleaded guilty in 2008 to attempted third-degree criminal sexual assault. Last month, Sanilac District Judge Gregory Ross signed an order allowing Mirasolo joint custody rights of his victim’s child. It came after she applied for state aid.

The judge put the order on hold Tuesday after learning of Mirasolo’s background. A hearing is scheduled for this month. CBS News’ Tony Dokoupil spoke to the victim and her attorney about their effort to protect other rape victims from facing painful legal circumstances.

“I don’t understand why they thought they needed to give him joint legal custody. He was my rapist,” said Tiffany, who was 12 in 2008 when she says Mirasolo forced himself on her in an abandoned house near Detroit.

Now 21, she’s raising her 8-year-old

Rapist granted joint custody of child after 12-year-old girl he attacked fell pregnant

A judge has granted joint custody to a man who raped a 12-year-old girl and fathered her child.

Christopher Mirasolo, 27, was convicted of the sex attack nine years ago, but has now proved his paternity in court in Michigan.

Judge Gregory S. Ross, 24th Circuit Court Family Division of Sanilac County awarded parenting time and joint legal custody to Mirasolo and gave the attacker his victim’s home address.

But the rapist is understood not to have initiated the case, or to have plans to be involved with the child.

According to Rebecca Kiessling, who is representing the victim, the sentence for Mirasolo’s crime of rape of a minor should have been at least 25 years behind bars, but he only served a few months, because it was judged as ‘attempted’ rape, though the victim was pregnant.

Cromwell put the entire city of Calgary on high alert in the late 1980s and early ‘90s when he broke into homes on Hemlock Crescent in the city’s southwest and raped four women, covering their heads with pillowcases. The victims ranged in age from 13 to 29 years old.
