Pagsinabing SEDUCTION, eto yung pang-aakit sa isang babae na makipag engage sa isang unlawful

sexual intercourse by promise of marriage or other means of persuasion without the use of force
(Reyes).

Wala namang masamang magmahal. Sino nga ba naman sa atin ang hindi. Minsan lang
na may darating na taong magpapakilig sa iyo. Enjoy the moment, ika nga. Kasi nga
naman hindi lahat ng tao kaya kang pakiligin.

Pero kelan nga ba nagiging mali ang pagmamahal? O sige na, given na dito ang
pakikipagrelasyon dun sa mga taong may asawa na. PERIOD.

But aside from entering into an affair with a married man or woman, isa sa mga
nagiging mainit na issue ay ang pakikipag relasyon sa mas bata sa iyo, kesijora pang
boylet or girlet yan. Okay lang kung May-November affair. Who cares? Pero pag
pumataol ka sa isang menor de edad, ayan, mukhang magkakaproblema tayo dyan
nang todo-todo.

Kasi nga naman dahil menor de edad yan, ang presumption ay wala pa siya sa tamang
edad at posisyon para makapag desisyon tungkol sa isang siryosong relasyon.
Kumbaga, parang madali pang mauto si nene at si toto because of lack of experience.
Minsan naman, naaakit sila sa material na bagay na kayang ibigay nang mas
nakakatandang ka-relasyon. In this kind of set-up, nagiging vigilant ang State in
protecting the minor. “Parens patrea” ika nga (pwede paki-google na lang ang
meaning?).

Teka, linawin ko. Hindi yung relasyon with a minor ang kinakastigo ng batas natin, kundi
iyong pakikipagtalik dun sa menor de edad na ka-relasyong babae. Tatlong crimes ang
papasok ngayon dito sa discussion natin sa Law For The Idiots. Ang Qualified Seduction,
Simple Seduction at Acts of Lasciviousness With The Consent Of The Offended Party.

Pagsinabing SEDUCTION, eto yung pang-aakit sa isang babae na makipag engage sa
isang unlawful sexual intercourse by promise of marriage or other means of persuasion
without the use of force (Reyes).

Importanteng ang pagtatahalik diyan sa babae ay walang force, threat, intimidation or
that the woman would be deprived of reason or otherwise unconscious. Kung hindi,
RAPE yan. Mga elements kasi ng RAPE ang mga nabanggit ko.

A. QUALIFIED SEDUCTION seduction of a virgin over 12 years of age and under 18
years of age.

Let’s divide the offender here into two (2) groups.

I. public authority II. brother or ascendant of the girl
priest
house servant
domestic
guardian

that’s automatically RAPE. and that is Act of Lasciviousness With The Consent of the Offended Party. Kumbaga dapat naka home base. kahit may consent pa iyan ng mga magulang. threat. Kung first base. tatay. offended party is a virgin (which is presumed kung single siya at may magandang reputasyon). Kahit sabihin pa nating may consent ng babae iyan. “virginity is presumed if the woman is unmarried and of good reputation. yung domestic dyan sa listing sa group I pertains dun sa mga taong nakakasama mo under the same roof like boarders (sa mga bed spacers). Pag merong elements ng force. 2.teacher any person entrusted with education or custody of the woman Please take note na yung babae ay dapat above 12 years old. hindi iyan yung material o literal word for virgin. second base at third base lang iyan. ang sexual intercourse ay dapat may penetration. Kasi kung below 12 yan. offender had sexual intercourse with her 4.” If the woman is above 18 years old. Nagiging crime lang siya kung ikaw mismong nakipag relasyon sa kanya ay any of those mentioned in the enumeration kasi nagkakaroon ng ABUSE of AUTHORITY. Pagdating sa group II. Pero it pertains as well to “good reputation”. Basta pataas ang linya ng relationship. Yung character ng karelasyong lalaki is taken into account because he committed it in excess of power or abuse of confidence of which he availed of. ibang crime yan at hindi Qualified Seduction. etc. friends and other relatives na nakikitira sa inyo. there is no crime at all as long as in their sexual intercourse there is no force. Remember? Tatandaan lang natin lagi ang apat (4) na elements ng Qualified Seduction. given na yan kung virgin sa totoong buhay yung girl. it will still fall under Qualified Seduction kasi ang . which are: 1. Sabi nga ni Pareng Reyes sa libro niyang Book II ng Criminal Law. there is ABUSE of AUTHORITY. from there makikita natin na may 2 classes of Qualified Seduction at sila ang: (a) seduction of a virgin over 12 but below 18 years of age (b) seduction of a sister or descendant regardless of her age When we speak of VIRGIN.. kamag-anak yan ng girl na nakakatanda sa kanya like kuya. Ayan. hindi naman punishable ang pakikipag relasyon dun sa babae eh. intimidation or that the woman is deprived of reason or otherwise unconscious. and worst. threat. or RELATIONSHIP on the part of the offender Dito sa Qualified Seduction. Kung tutuusin. Of course. tito and the likes. Dapat pumasok sa main event ang lampungan at hindi hanggang landian portion lang. RAPE yan. CONFIDENCE. she must be over 12 and under 18 years of age 3. CONFIDENCE at RELATIONSHIP. lolo. Oo nga pala. kahit pa pumayag at may basbas pa ng magulang.

Natatandaan mo? Kasi kung mutual desire ang sexual intercourse at dala lang ng lust ang pagtatalik ninyo. Yari ka. it must be the promise of marriage which should be the inducement for having sexual intercourse with the man by the woman. threat. Kasi nga naman. or b. As long as there is no element of force. Or else. Sabi din ni Pareng Reyes sa libro niya.S. Naku eto ang matindi. ang pagiging isang biktima nila nang isang karumaldumal na krimen will not strip them of being a woman of good reputation. Makes sense naman. a widow may be a victim here). Kasi it only proves that you are not a woman of good reputation. Sana if you have time. widow of good reputation over 12 years of age but under 18 years of age committed by means of DECEIT. single. Mas lalong walang Simple Seduction kung ang lalaking nangako sa’yo nang kasal ay kasal na sa iba (see U. Yung example nga lang natin dun walang criminal aspect kasi nga lagpas na sa 18 yung babae. SIMPLE SEDUCTION seduction of a woman who is: a. Isang commentator ng criminal law ang nagsabi na kahit ang isang rape victim ay pwede pa ring maging victim dito sa Simple Seduction. offended party is above 12 but below 18 years of age 2. bisitahin mo uli yung discussion natin sa BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. papasok ka sa crime of RAPE which is sobrang tindi ng penalty. hindi yan Simple Seduction. hindi yan pwedeng pumasok sa Simple Seduction. she must be of good reputation (single or widow) 3. there is no crime if the girl is already above 18 years of age even if deceit is employed for purposes of having sexual intercourse with her. confidence and relationship. B. vs Sarmiento). Eto ngayon ang mga elements for Simple Seduction: 1. Yung deceit na tinutukoy dito pertains to unfulfilled promise of marriage. or that she is deprived of reason of otherwise unconscious during the sexual intercourse. intimidation. offender had sexual intercourse with her 4. it is committed by DECEIT Again. kung ang deceit na tinutukoy mo girl kaya napapayag ka niyang makipagtalik sa kanya ay dahil nangako siyang bibigyan ka niya nang maraming alahas. Sabi din. di ba? Now please take note of the element of DECEIT in this crime. All that is necessary is that she is a woman of good reputation (remember. Pokpok ka! (joke lang ha) . It is not essential in Simple Seduction that the woman is literally a virgin.importante nga dito yung tinatawag nating abuse of authority.

Parang “almost Qualified Seduction” or “almost Simple Seduction”. kung walang penetration sa landian portion nila at lewd design lang. pinaparusahan dito yung ideya nang panloloko. Kolehiyala sa isang exclusive school for girls somewhere in Makati (yup. So from there. Eto naman si lalaki. the crime would be ACTS OF LASCIVIOUSNESS WITH THE CONSENT OF THE OFFENDED PARTY under Article 339 of the Revised Penal Code. and who thus draws her aside from the path of virtue and rectitude and then fails and refuses to fulfill his promise. nagkukwentuhan na naman si girl at ang mga ka-tropa niya tungkol sa Kama Sutra. Nagulat na lang ang mga babae kasi biglang naglecture at nagdemonstrate si Mike tungkol sa mga sexual acts na na-experienced na niya. a character despicable in the eyes of every decent.So bakit nga ba pinaparusahan ang pakikipagtalik mo sa isang babae (12-18) after mong mangakong pakakasalan mo siya? Hiramin natin ang sabi ng Supreme Court sa kaso ng People vs Iman. Bigyan kita ng sample case ha. sumama ang mga girls at sumakay sila sa kotse nito. “ALMOST” kasi hindi totally naka homerun. Isang araw habang nagla-lunch si girl at ang mga ka-tropa niya. Sabi pa nga niya. sabay abot sa mga chicks ng organizer niya so they can list down their names and contact numbers. Pero higit sa lahat. it is more than the sexual intercourse or breach of promise of marriage ang pinaparusahan. child abuse ang kinaso sa lalaki. lumapit sa kanila sa sir at naki-join sa umpukan nila. confidence and relationship doon sa babae. Para di ma-offend si Mike. Nag check-in sila sa “calesa room. but to punish the seducer who. Eto: 17 years old at that time si girl. After sometime. honorable man. by means of promise of marriage. 28 years old at prof ni girl sa Philosophy II class niya.” Again. sila yung “let’s make tusok-tusok the fishball). Dinala sila ni Mike sa Anito Lodge sa Harison sa may bandang Pasay. Hehehe…okay ba? Dito sa crimes ng Qualified at Simple Seduction. destroys the chastity of an unmarried female of previous chaste and character. na-disappoint pa si girl kasi wala naman daw video cassette player o di kaya ay X-rated show sa closed circuit television. eto o: “It is not the illicit intercourse. wala daw yun kumpara sa collection niya ng mga XXX rated films. Pero dito sa case na ito. Paano nga naman daw sila manunuod ng bold diba? . pang-iinduce at abuse of authority.” Pagdating nila dun. he invited the group to view his collection. Biglang singit ni Mike. So ano nga ba itong ACTS OF LASCIVIOUSNESS WITH THE CONSENT OF THE OFFENDED PARTY? Ganito yan para madali mong maintindihan. “Just call me Mike”.

when she was already 19. Di daw siya ang kasama ni girl sa motel kasi nga magkakasama nila ng mga katropa niya. Inapila ni Mike sa CA. Nadala siya sa Queensland Lodge. nagjerjer sila. Obligado ngayon ang State na i-minimize ang risk ng harm sa kanila kasi nga they. Ang sabi pa ng SC. Totoo. Pero 19 at that time si girl. The following school year nakipag break na si girl kay Mike. anong problema ninyo? Nonetheless. So 19 na si girl noon. sinustain ng SC ang conviction pa rin niya. nagjerjer nga sila. shhhh….” . Ayun. After a few months. Kung di daw ibibigay ni girl. Kahit itanong mo pa daw sa mga tropaks niya. mega tanggi pa si girl kasi usapn daw nila sa debut pa nila gagawin ang jerjer. Madami pala sila. Kaso. Si Mike din daw kasi ang first guy na nanligaw sa kanya (ako nga elementary. taranta si girl. sinimulan ni Mike ligawan si girl. Syempre. being minors. Napapayag din. Nangyari lang ang jerjer episodes noong gf na niya si girl.Nag suggest ngayon si Mike na mag “cuddle” na lang daw sila. From there. Since galing sa broken family si girl. Pumayag naman si girl. Nagfile din si mother ng criminal case against kay Mike sa Office of the City Prosecutor sa Pasay City. Napikon si Mike. might as well mag break na sila. kinonvict pa rin si Mike ng court. Eto daw ang dahilan bakit prone sa panloloko at pang-uuto ang mga bata kasi nga hindi sila capable na maintindihan at malaman fully ang nature at import ng kanilang actions. “Those of tender years deserve the State’s protection. Magsisimula sa innocent talks ang pag-uusap nila pero laging nauuwi sa usapang sex. are unable to take care of themselves fully. But just the same. nagalit si mother at nireklamo si Mike sa school. In other words. tinatawagan. As usual ang depensa ni Mike ay alibi at denial. Eto ang maganda sa sinabi ng SC: “A child cannot give consent to a contract under our civil laws”. Bukod pa yung girls na sinu-subject ni Mike ng sexual harassment. At first. Pero di sila pumayag kaya hinayaan na lang daw sila nito. Tintetext. Mike invited her for some private talk. Na-discover kasi niya na di lang pala siya ang girlet nito. unti-unti siyang nahulog kay Mike dahil na din sa special attention na binibigay niya kay girl. Ayun. na-sustain ang conviction niya. pine-page (may pager pa noon). Alam naman daw niya na need niya ang jerjer. Nalaman ngayon ni mother.). So from MU naging sweethearts na sila. Akyat siya ngayon sa Supreme Court. and that is.
