Does A Parent Who Conceived A Child By Rape Have Rights To Custody Or Parenting Time In Michigan?

3858325.pngIn September 2017, a Sanilac County circuit court judge granted joint legal custody of a child to a convicted rapist. The father had two convictions for criminal sexual conduct, including one against the mother who he attacked in 2008 when she was only 12-years old. The case started when the mother sought public assistance to care for her now 8-year old son. This led the State of Michigan to locate the biological father through DNA testing so that he would have an obligation to pay child support and reimburse the public assistance paid. However, that judge declared at a hearing that the rapist father would have sole physical custody and joint legal custody, meaning that he would have a right to participate in major decisions in his son's life.
