If my child was conceived from rape, can the offender get legal decision-making or parenting time?

The law says that if the offender was convicted of the crime of sexual assault and that sexual assault led to your child being conceived, the convicted person has no rights to legal decision-making or parenting time.1 However, if the offender was not criminally convicted of this specific crime of sexual assault, he may still be able to get rights to your child.
