Rapes a 12-year-old, holds her captive for two days, now a Michigan judge grants him joint-custody.

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. 

A month later the 12-year-old realized she was pregnant and Mirasolo was arrested. 

'She (the victim) and her family was told first-time sex offenders weren't sent to prison because people come out worse after they go there,' [attorney] Kiessling told the News. 

'Nothing has been right about this since it was originally investigated. 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.' 

Though the assault could have carried a life sentence or one no less than 25 years, Mirasolo was given a plea for attempted third-degree criminal sexual conduct and sentenced to a year in prison. 

He didn't serve the full year, though, and was let out after six months to care for his sick mother. 

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. 

All of that was done without the victim's consent or a hearing, Kiessling claims. 

Kiessling said that the victim was told she is not allowed to move 100 miles from her current address 'without court consent'.
