Michigan molester gets custody of 12-year-old victim’s child

Michigan molester gets custody of 12-year-old victim's child

Christopher Mirasolo

Christopher Mirasalo, 27, with the smug mug up there, has recently been awarded parenting time and joint legal custody of the 8-year-old boy born from the 2008 rape of Mirasalo’s victim, who was 12 at the time.

Now before you get all riled and outraged at this turn of events, like I was when all I read was the attention-grabbing headline, let me fill you in on how this happened.

Apparently, the child’s mother, who is now 21, applied for state assistance in Michigan and was receiving food stamps and healthcare for her son. I guess when you’re allowed to quit school at 12 and try to raise a baby, your chances of employment capable of sustaining you and your child are greatly diminished, but I digress, as Trench would say.

All states’ departments of social services attempt to recover assistance funds to single parents by establishing paternity and subsequent child support payments for their children. Once paternity is established, the other parent is routinely awarded parenting time and joint legal custody. According to Mirasalo’s attorney, this is what occurred here and none of this was initiated by him. Keep in mind that joint legal custody does not equal joint residential custody.

I am not AT ALL forgiving this monster for raping and impregnating a 12-year-old when he was 18 himself and way old enough to know better. BUT, I have a lot of questions as to how things got to the point they are at today:

1. Mirasalo kept the 12-year-old and her sister almost hostage-like for 2 days…was a missing child report filed?
2. Who allows a 12-year-old to make the decision to drop out of school and attempt to raise a BABY? Really?
3. What has the child been told about who his father is?
4. Is this turn of events all because the victim applied for state assistance?
5. Does Mirasalo even want contact with the child? He’s been out of prison for similar charges since 2014; chances are if he hasn’t made contact in the past 3+ years, he probably wasn’t going to.
6. Can’t Mirasalo just relinquish his parental rights if he wants to?

There’s always more behind the sensationalist headlines.

Ex-Deputy on Trial for Kidnapping Daughters, Keeping Them Out of School

Old German Baptist BrethrenHave you ever heard of the Old German Baptist Brethren? (Not to be confused with the German Baptist Brethren, and certainly not to be mixed up with those bastards the Old Order German Baptist Brethren.) They’re an Anabaptist group, theologically similar in some ways to the Mennonite and the Amish. I’d never heard of the conservative religious group until I stumbled across this story about 34-year-old Michael Hari of Illinois, who’s standing trial for kidnapping his daughters, Mollie, 15, and Allene, 13.

How does this relate to the Old German Baptist Brethrens? According to the article, Hari is a member of the church, which according to the writeup prohibits educating girls after the eight grade. I couldn’t actually confirm this in any statement of belief about the OGBB, so I’m taking that one with a grain of salt. The best I could gather is that the OGBB don’t support “higher” education. But it seems that even that opposition has eroded in recent years.

Whatever the reason, something inside Hari compelled him to skip the country with his daughters in tow, landing him and the girls to a Mennonite colony in Belize. Hari’s attorney denies that his client fled to Belize. But he seems incapable of explaining why Hari told his ex-wife, Michelle Frakes, that he’d be drop the girls off in “a couple of hours” – and then thoroughly disappeared for 10 months. Hari’s attorney also doesn’t explain how a private investigator tracked the wayward dad to Belize, and why it took no less than Dr. Phil McGraw to talk the guy into returning voluntarily to the states. (You can find the full account of The Dr. Phil Show’s involvement on

This is one of those cases that make me glad I never became a defense attorney. There just can’t be that much job satisfaction in manufacturing excuses for people like Michael Hari. If I wanted to tell lies for a living, I’d get a more socially respectable job – like, say, being a TV news anchor, or a presidential press secretary.

The Rachel Marran Case: Daughter Abducted by Mom, Finally Reunited with Dad

I hate blogging about child custody issues. Most of them are muddled messes of "he said/she said", with no clear-cut hero or villain. (Gee, sounds a lot like…life.) And in cases where there’s clear-cut good and evil, it’s often the father who ends up being the dickweed. As a dad, there’s only so many such cases I can cover before I become disillusioned with my gender.

By all appearances, however, the Rachel Marran case is different. Marran was four when courts awarded joint custody of her to her father, Michael, and her mother, Claudia Librett. Librett had accused her former partner (the two never married) of molesting their daughter, a claim which the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania DA – along with local detective, state child welfare advocates, and local, state and federal courts – say was fabricated by The Ex-Girlfriend from Hell. (And the woman still got joint custody? Um…) Frustrated by her inability to pop a judicial cap in dad’s ass, millionaire mom Librett went into hiding with the girl in Canada, preventing Marran from seeing his daughter even once over the past three years.

Recently, however, the noose tightened on Librett’s vindictive bitch self. With authorities closing in on her, mom turned herself in. Now, Michael Marran has what it sounds like he deserved all along: custody of Rachel. The Montgomery County courts expedited the custody ruling for Marran, shortening a seven-day waiting period by four days and delivering a ruling in what Marran’s attorney calls "unprecedented" time. Rachel will return to school next week, after she’s had some time to adjust to life with the father she hasn’t seen in 36 months – and after authorities have time to prepare security, to prevent Rachel from being abducted by Librett’s "supporters". (Egads.)

I was going to run a photo of Claudia Librett with this story, but it seems much more fitting to run this touching pic of Michael Marran and Rachel, which is obviously old. I have no doubt Marran is busy capturing more happy memories now that he and Rachel are reunited.

As for mom? She’s awaiting extradition in Canada. Hopefully she didn’t squander all of her funds on the luxury condo she rented in Niagara Falls, and has some couch change left over for a wicked good defense lawyer. If you couldn’t prove abuse allegations a few months after they allegedly happened, there’s no hope in hell of anyone buying your bullshit three years later.
