Friday, August 10, 2012
RAPE charges were filed against an 18-year-old accused of molesting his 12-year-old neighbor.
The City Prosecution Office (CPO) found probable cause to charge Rene (not his real name) after he allegedly raped Shane (name withheld for being a minor) on May 3.
In her affidavit, Shane said she was invited for a drinking session at their neighbor's house around 8 p.m.
She said when she got tipsy and weak, Rene pulled her off from where she was seated and brought her to his house.
Rene brought the victim inside his room and started molesting her.
Shane said that while the respondent was on top of her, she tried to push him but the latter was strong enough and consummated his lustful desire.
The victim said she then lost her consciousness. She woke up the next morning still inside Rene's room.
The victim went home and told her sister what happened.
The victim said she went to their sitio leader's house, where Rene was reportedly staying. She then learned that the accused was no longer staying there, prompting them to report the incident to the police thus, the filing of case.
No bail was recommended for the respondent.
