I, JOCELYN M. VULPINO, 42 years old, unmarried, in a common law relationship with

Rivero C. Rosales, residing in 1924 Leveriza St., Brgy. Prudente Uno, Alabang, Muntinlupa City,
after having been duly sworn to in accordance with law, do hereby depose and state that:
1. I am filing a case for violation of R.A. 9262 against Rivero N. Rosales, 41 years old and
currently residing 1924 Leveriza St., Brgy. Prudente Uno, Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
2. Rivero N. Rosales has been managing the family business of goto eatery and carinderia
in the Alabang marketplace, which I inherited from my parents, since we decided to live
together as husband and wife in 1992. Despite my insistence, we did not marry because
he argued that it was only a waste of time and money.
3. I gave birth to our child, Josephine Andrea, on 5 January 1998. By this time, our business
had expanded so I asked Rivero for money for the baby shower and baptismal
celebration. Again, he refused to heed my wishes, giving the excuse that these are
unnecessary expenses and that our business had just started to grow.
4. That I am charging my common law husband for violation of Section 5 (a)(b)(i)
paragraph 2, otherwise known as the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children
Act, committed as follows:
a. On 20 June 2014 at around 5:00 AM, while searching for Rivero, who did not
return to our house for the last two (2) nights, I caught him in the act of having
sexual intercourse with a certain Liv Sarsi-Ochoa inside the stall of our business
establishment. I also smelled something unusual, which I suspected was the scent
of illicit drugs.
b. During that encounter, he angrily asked me, Anong ginagawa mo dito? (What
are you doing here?) Before I got to answer, he slapped me on the left cheek with
his open hand, and followed it up with a punch to my face that landed on my right

cheek. Not content with this, he proceeded to kick me three (3) times in
succession on my left leg.
c. After that, he pulled me by the hair and dragged me to a tricycle he had hailed,
and told me, Hayop ka iuuwi na kita. (F*ck you, were going home now.) I
could not immediately stand up because of the pain in my leg, so he carried me in
his arms and loaded me into the tricycle.
d. When we arrived home at about 6:00 AM of the same date, once inside the house
he lashed out at me furiously, pulled my hair, punched me in the stomach, then
went outside.
e. When a few minutes had passed, he re-entered the house and grabbed the bolo
knife in the cooking area. At that time, my mother Amelia M. Vulpino was also
inside the house.
f. He and my mother fought each other, and he yelled, Papatayin kong lahat ng
nandito! (Im gonna kill everyone here!)
g. Since that incident, I have learned from our employees that Rivero had been
indeed into drugs when a friend of his offered him money to conceal packs of
shabu; that Rivero had been keeping Liv, his mistress, in our business
establishment; and that Rivero had been spending our money on his mistress.
h. That the act of my husband of slapping, punching, kicking, dragging me
constitutes physical violence under Section 5 (a) of RA 9262 otherwise known as
Anti- Violence Against Women Act of 2004.
i. That the act of my husband of grabbing a bolo and threatening to kill everyone in
the house constitutes threat which is punishable under Section 5 (b) of RA 9262
otherwise known as Anti- Violence Against Women Act of 2004.
j. That the previously mentioned acts committed by my husband has resulted to
mental and emotional suffering to me and my mother, which constitutes
psychological violence under Section 5 (i) of RA 9262 otherwise known as AntiViolence Against Women Act of 2004.
