The man who raped 12-year-old girl, got custody of the born child

Rebecca Kiessling has been a nightmare in 2008, when as a 12-year-old child became a victim of rape 18-year-old Christopher Mirasola. In the result of intercourse, the girl became pregnant and gave birth to a son. 9 years after the incident in the life of a woman again broke her rapist, but only as the father of the child, which the Michigan court of allowed joint custody of the son.

According to Kiessling, the sentence for rape, committed on a person under the age of 17 or older against a person under 13 years of age, must contain the mandatory term of life imprisonment or any term of a few years, but not less than 25.

Instead, the court decided that it was attempted rape, and defined a felony of the third degree. The maximum term of imprisonment for this pravonarushenii is five years, but Mirasola was sentenced to just six and a half months in prison.

According to the victim, Miracolo kidnapped her sister and friend in September 2008, threw mobile phones and kept them in an empty house for two days. During this time he raped a 12-year-old girl and «threatened to kill them if they tell everyone what happened.»

In March 2010 Mirasola was charged a second sexual assault – and again against a victim aged 13 to 15 years. He was released after 2 years. Now the man is in the sex offenders register, which means that he can’t stay with a child under the age of 18 without an adult supervisor. Unfortunately, his status does not include the point – to stay away from their victims.

Test DNA confirmed paternity Miracolo. Based on the results of this analysis judge Gregory S. Ross County Sanilac decided in favor of the offender and assigned mandatory hours of visitation and joint custody joint of their son. The court also allowed the accused rapist to the home address of the victim. Besides Miracolo will be inscribed in the birth certificate of the child.

The lawyer twice imprisoned for sexual assault of the offender Barbara Jockey said that her client was not the initiator of obtaining custody of your son. She said that doesn’t know about his further intentions in relation to the child.

Kiessling believes that the court’s decision violates the law of Michigan, adopted in 2016, about the parental rights of rapists. The law States that «if a dispute of custody refers to the child who was conceived as a result of criminal sexual acts in which one of the biological parents was found guilty, the court should not appoint a guardianship that the biological parent».

The victim has filed a court objection for cancellation of the decision. The next hearing is scheduled for 25 October.
