Teacher suspended for immoral conduct


A PUBLIC school teacher was meted an eight-month suspension for living with another woman aside from his wife.

The Ombudsman-Visayas said it found sufficient basis to hold Rogelio Tines guilty of “disgraceful and immoral conduct.”

Regional Director Recaredo Borgonia of the Department of Education in Central Visayas (DepEd-7) was ordered to enforce the suspension against Tines who works in the Lawa-an Elementary School in Dumanjug town, Cebu.

“His actuations are contrary to prevailing community standards of conduct and this violated the trust reposed in his office,” said anti-graft investigator Ma. Regina Fernandez said.

The suspension stemmed from the complaint filed by Tines’ wife Edna who claimed to be married with the respondent on Nov. 17, 1992.

Edna said Tines maintained a relationship with another woman.

Tines and his alleged paramour lived together in Dumanjug, Cebu with their child despite having five children with her, Edna said.

Edna said Tines should be held liable for concubinage because he is “cohabiting and maintaining a scandalous relationship with another woman.”

The anti-graft office gave Tines a chance to refute the allegations but he failed to waive his right to submit his defenses.

Disgraceful and immoral conduct is defined as “willful, flagrant, or shameless behavior which shows a moral indifference to the opinion of the good and respectable members of the community.” Reporter Ador Vincent Mayol

    “Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.” Titus 1:15

    Have you ever heard someone say, “Let your conscience be your guide?” Well, that is not always the best saying, because a conscience can be defiled.

    A Native American who is also a Christian said this about our conscience:
    “In my heart there is an arrowhead with three points to it. If I do wrong, the arrowhead turns, and cuts me. If I do wrong too much, I wear out the points and it doesn’t hurt me quite so much. But when the pain is gone, watch out!”

    A person can be numb or blinded to what he has done, thereby making him oblivious to his wrongdoing. You can only let your conscience be your guide, when God guides your conscience.

    erap(PWE) does it. ramon revilla does it. rambotito(PWE) does it. sabit singson(PWE) does it; with matching abduction, battery, and, death promises. Only the small fry get shafted for doing it.

    Rather a hypocritical and unequal application of laws, eh, wot?!
