MICHIGAN -- (WXYZ) -- The 7 Investigators continue to dig into the Sanilac County case that has everybody wondering: How did a judge grant joint legal custody and parenting time to a twice-convicted rapist who is the father in the case?

The attorney for the rapist is speaking out.

Attorney Barbara Yokey represents Christopher Mirasolo.

She says that this was not a rape but a consensual relationship that had gone on for a few months.

But the girl, Tiffany, was 12-years-old and her client was 18.

The attorney agrees, clearly by Michigan law, this is statutory rape.

Yokey would not talk on camera.

The attorney for Tiffany says she expects a lot from the judge in court next week up in Sanilac County.

“He wants his opportunity to be heard. He wants his day in court,” says Attorney Rebecca Kiessling.
