Judge Gregory S. Ross is a Michigan judge who is feeling the wrath of Twitter after his choice to grant Christopher Mirasolo joint custody of a child who was the product of Mirasolo allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl has been made public.
As reported by Yahoo, Mirasolo is a convicted rapist who not only raped a 12-year-old girl, but was also convicted of the sexual assault of other underage girls. The 12-year-old girl was raped by Christopher nine years ago, when he was approximately 18 years of age. Now Mirasolo is a 27-year-old man who has been granted joint custody of the now eight-year-old boy in the wake of a paternity test revealing that Mirasolo is indeed the father.
Mirasolo was granted custody by Judge Ross, and, as a result, the wrath of Twitter has fallen upon him. Twitter users are posting what they claim are photos of the Michigan District Judge Ross, along with his contact information at his office. According to Detroit News, Judge Ross told Mirasolo where his rape victim lived and had Christopher’s name added to the little boy’s birth certificate, without the rape victim giving the judge consent to do so.
“[Judge Gregory S.] Ross disclosed the rape victim’s address to Mirasolo and ordered Mirasolo’s name to be added to the child’s birth certificate — all without the victim’s consent or a hearing, according to Kiessling.”
The rape victim is now a 21-year-old woman. Mirasolo was convicted of raping her in 2008, and has served four years in prison for a different sexual assault. Mirasolo hails from Brown City, Michigan.
The rape victim’s lawyer, Rebecca Kiessling, is attempting to use the federal Rape Survivor Child Custody Act to stop Mirasolo from getting access to the little boy without his mother consenting to allow it. Meanwhile, Kiessling called Judge Ross’ decision “insane,” and noted that Christopher should still be behind bars for rape.
Mirasolo was convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, and allegedly threatened to kill his rape victim, but served months for that assault instead of one year or more. His next prison stint of four years was attributable to a rape in March 2010, wherein Mirasolo’s victims were 13-year-old and 15-year-old sisters that were held captive in an empty home for two days.
