What happens when a man who raped his wife loses custody of their three children?

The mother of a five-year-old boy is suing her ex-husband for custody of her children and wants him to pay child support, a new court document reveals.

Marisa Sanchez has filed a lawsuit against her ex, who has been in custody since the child was born in January 2016, the New York Daily News reported.

The mother of the five-month-old baby claims the ex has abused the children and “will continue to do so.”

The lawsuit, which was filed in Manhattan’s Court of Claims, also claims the two were separated before the baby was born.

Sanchez is seeking $4,800 in child support and $25,000 in punitive damages.

A representative for Sanchez declined to comment.
