Back in 2009, a man who was 20 at the time raped a 14 year old teen he had met at church
. Prosecutors had asked for prison time but instead, the man received 16 years probation. The 14 year old got pregnant as a result of the rape and kept the baby who is now 3. As part of his sentence, the man was forced to admit paternity and to pay child support. Because he is paying child support, he is eligible to also try and have visitation with the child and that is what he has filed in a Boston court. Can you imagine having to share custody or communicating with your rapist for your entire life because he wants to be a part of the child's life? The victim says she still suffers from anxiety and depression. Imagine how she will feel if she has to see her rapist all the time or discuss the child.
