As much as we want to trust the laws of our countries, sometimes our criminal justice systems can really shock and disappoint us.
This next story is an example of just that.
27-year-old Christopher Mirasolo raped a twelve-year-old girl and impregnated her.
Now after many years and several legalities later, a court has decided that Christopher should receive joint legal custody of the child.
The year was 2008. A 12-year-old girl and her 13-year-old sister snuck out of their home in Sanilac County, Michigan to meet two older guys. One of them was Christopher Mirasolo, then 18 years old.
The girls were picked up by the boys and the plan was to go hang out at McDonalds. But instead of driving there, the boys took the girls’ mobile phones, threw them out of the window. They then brought them to an empty house, where Christopher held the girls captive for two days, the Daily Mail reports.
At the house, the vicious and despicable individual raped the twelve-year-old girl. After releasing the sisters, he threatened to kill them both if they ever told anybody.
Despite his threats, Christopher was ultimately condemned and sentenced to a year in prison.
At the same time, it was revealed that the twelve-year-old had become pregnant as a result of her rape. Christopher went to prison but was released after only six months on the basis that he had to take care of his sick mother.
In 2010, Christopher was arrested again, this time for sexual assault of a minor.
Today, he is free and the child he fathered together with his first rape victim is now an 8-year-old boy. After a DNA test confirmed that there is no doubt that he is the father of the child, the court has decided that Christopher would receive joint custody together with his rape victim.
“Nothing has been right about this since it was originally investigated,” the victim’s attorney Rebecca Kiessling told The Daily Mail. “He was never properly charged and should be sitting behind bars somewhere, but the system is victimizing my client, who was a child herself when this all happened.”
The boy was conceived when 'he attacked the child's mother when she was 12 years old'

This shouldn’t be happening! This case is a clear example that some aspects of our criminal justice system need to be reviewed. Share if you agree.
