A Michigan judge awarded a rapist joint custody of a child that was conceived in the attack.

Nine years ago, Christopher Mirasolo was 18-years-old when he raped a 12-year-old girl named Rebecca Kiessling.

After Mirasolo raped Kiessling, she became pregnant and he was arrested about a month later. However, instead of an actual jail sentence, he took a plea deal charge: third-degree criminal sexual conduct. Instead of the 25-years to life that he should have been serving, he only served half a year in the county jail.

Kiessling said that she and her family were told that he was offered the plea deal because ““because people come out worse after they go there.” Ironically enough, he raped another woman shorty after he was released from jail.
