No. Even if it is a case of sour grapes. If he's 20 having sex with a 14 year old, the baby shouldn't be exposed to him. If he's also a thief and incapable of following the terms of his probation, I can't see why a lawyer would even take his case.
Rape is rape. She was 14 and not of legal age to give consent. It says he was 17 when he met her, 20 when he raped her. That means he knew her from the time she was 11 and knew he could intimidate her. That is rape. No way should he be allowed visitation or any contact.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
Personally, no no no he should not get rights. And if i were the kid when i found out he assaulted the mother that way i would cut off relations. What a giant SLAP in the face of the mother having to look at his sorry face and relive what he did to her everytime she has to interact wth him to share custody and decisions for the child until the child is grown. That is a bunch of hooey.
