Rapist is granted joint custody of his victim's son

A convicted rapist has been granted joint custody of his eight-year-old son, who was conceived when he allegedly raped the boy's mother in 2008 when she was just 12.

Christopher Mirasolo, from Brown City, Michigan, was granted joint legal custody and parenting time after a positive paternity results confirmed he is the father. 

And now, the victim's attorney is seeking protection for the alleged victim and her son under the federal Rape Survivor Child Custody Act. A hearing is scheduled for October 25, according to The Detroit News. 

The case was initially reported by a local radio show The Steve Gruber Show, and is thought to be the first of its kind in Michigan, if not the United States. 

The victim, who is not named, claims that the paternity test came after she was surveyed about the yearly child support she receives.

'This is insane,' the victim's attorney Rebecca Kiessling told the News. 

The victim, who is now 21, claims that Mirasolo forcibly raped and threatened to kill her nine years ago. The now 27-year-old was 18 when the attack allegedly happened in September 2008.

Kiesling said that the victim was with her 13-year-old sister and another friend when they snuck out of their home one night to meet up with a boy and his older friend. 

That older friend was Mirasolo, and he asked them if they wanted to go for a ride. 

Thinking they would go to a McDonalds or somewhere similar they got in, but Mirasolo allegedly took their phones and threw them out before driving them to Detroit to steal gas and then back to Sanilac County.

There he allegedly kept them captive for two days in an empty house before finally releasing the 13-year-old in a park. She said he threatened to kill them if they told anyone what had happened. 

Judge Gregory S Ross made the decision to grant Mirasolo custody, and then disclosed the victim's address to him and ordered her to add his name to the child's birth certificate
