In a statement released to the Port Huron Times Herald, Sanilac County Prosecutor James Young said he wanted to "express [officials'] apologies for the manner in which this case was handled."
The mother, identified only as Tiffany, spoke to CBS News earlier this month and expressed dismay that the judge would grant her attacker joint custody of her son. She said she had to provide the father's name as a condition of receiving state financial assistance.
“I was receiving government assistance, and they told me if I did not tell them who the father was of my child, that they would take that away from me,” Tiffany said.
She said “horrible things” and “flashbacks” still come to mind when she hears Mirasolo’s name.
