MICHIGAN MOM GETS 12 TO 22 YEARS FOR SEX ‘CONTRACT’ ON UNDERAGE DAUGHTER
Michael J. Fitzgibbon, a 37 year old man who police said entered into a sex pact with his girlfriend and her 15 year old daughter, pleaded no contest to felony sex charges. He pleaded no contest to more serious sex charges involving acts with a 12 year old girl, a relative. Fitzgibbon's girlfriend was afraid of losing him while she recuperating from gastric bypass surgery, so she arranged for him to have sex with her daughter for two months. He faces sentencing for the six counts of criminal sexual conduct on March 23. A no-contest plea is not an admission of guilt but is treated as such at sentencing. The mother is scheduled to stand trial in February on three counts of criminal sexual conduct. The 12 year old came forward after charges were filed.
The mother, 41, was sentenced on June 18 to 12 to 22 1/2 years in prison. She pleaded no contest to three counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.
