Convicted rapist in MI awarded joint custody , victim's lawyer says

Convicted rapist in MI awarded joint custody , victim's lawyer says”

"She, her 13-year-old sister and a friend all slipped out of their house one night to meet a boy and the boy's older friend, Mirasolo, showed up and asked if they wanted to go for a ride", said Kiessling.

The convicted rapist and biological father was not on the child's birth certificate. Just, let that sink in. Mirasolo, now 27, was 18 when the attack allegedly happened in September 2008. The victim was 12 years old. He served four years in prison for the second conviction, Kiessling told the Detroit News.

He took a plea deal and served five years for the sexual assault. The victim became pregnant as a result of the rape, and chose to keep the baby.

That offense occurred in March of 2010 and resulted in another charge, fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a child age 13-16, for which he has already completed the sentence. He's a registered sex offender in MI.

Mirasolo's attorney told The Detroit News he did not initiate court proceedings and said he's unsure if he will pursue a relationship with the victim's child.

A month later the 12-year-old realized she was pregnant and Mirasolo was arrested. "She deserves to be protected, the child deserves to be protected". Her attorney said when the woman applied for state aid, Sanilac County assistant prosecutor Eric Scott filed a motion to establish paternity and collect child support. She and her son had relocated to Florida.

A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 25 and the case is expected to be the first of its kind in MI. And as it turns out, the judge may have grossly overstepped his judicial powers in awarding the rapist custody.

"Hopefully other rape victims who experience the same thing will hear word of this, and also judges will learn that they can't be doing this sort of thing and will held accountable", Kiessling said.

The Sanilac County Prosecutor's Office released a statement on Tuesday, Oct. 10 that said the victim, now 21, requested financial assistance through the Michigan Department of Human Services in July of 2017. The order, which prosecutor's said awarded the mother sole physical custody of the child, was signed the next day by the Court.

A hearing has been scheduled for October 25 following an objection filed by Kiessling on behalf of her client.

"This is exactly why I introduced and fought for PA 96 of 2016, to protect victims like her from having to relive the worst moments of their lives, and to prevent scumbags like him from using innocent children as leverage to continue intimidation of or involvement with their victims", Lisa Posthumous Lyons, Kent County Clerk and former state representative, said in a statement. This poor woman was victimized by the court system once, and it's happening again. A petition to remove Judge Ross from the bench is now circulating.
