The case is complicated by the fact that the court ordered the slime to pay child support. Payment of child support gives the dirtball a crack in the system to try to justify visitation rights.
My suspicion is that this piece of trash is using the visitation rights approach to get out of the child support requirement.
Were I the judge, and able to go back in time, I’d have given him a choice: serve your sentence (ideally more than three years), and pay child support until the kid reaches adulthood, or stay in prison until at least the time the kid hits 21.
You nailed it. The child support was the key to getting visitation.
The victim’s attorney to trying to redefine this....
Part of the probation arrangement demanded he acknowledge he is the babys father and follow probate and family court rules, according to My Fox News station.
The law requires him to pay child support but also entitles him to seek visitation rights.
Now the man has allegedly asked for visitation rights, but the teenage mother says he has ‘never cared’ about her three-year-old toddler until now, Fox 25 reported.
The man’s legal representative refused to comment on the requests to see his child, but said the initial relationship between the victim and his client was consensual.
The teenage mother’s attorney Wendy Murphy told the NY Daily News that she had asked the Superior Court judge to amend the sentencing conditions.
Ms Murphy has filed a motion asking that the rapist would pay ‘restitution’ instead of child support, which would deny him access to the child through family court.
She has also asked that he be made to stay away from the child and mother.
A shocked Ms Murphy questioned why a criminal court had ‘punished’ the father with potential parental rights, NY Daily News reported.
She said allowing the man access to family courts he could have the chance to influence the child’s upbringing.
Ms Murphy, who teaches classes on sexual violence at New England Law-Boston, told NY Daily News:’This family has been very clear from the beginning that they want nothing to do with this guy.
‘What legal system requires a toddler to have a relationship with the man who raped her mother?’
