38-year-old man charged for having relationship with 14-year-old

By |


MANILA, Philippines—A jobless man ended up behind bars in Quezon City after he allegedly kept his teenaged lover away from her family for nearly two weeks.

Savino Abad, 38, of NIA Road, Barangay (village) Pinyahan, Quezon City, was arrested on Saturday afternoon in Barangay South Triangle after his 14-year-old girlfriend complained at the Kamuning police station.

The case investigator, SPO1 Virginia Surban, said the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office recommended charges against Abad for violation of Republic Act 9262, or Violence against Women and Children Act, and Article 271 under the Revised Penal Code on inducing a minor to leave home.

The case for abduction with rape and illegal detention was set for preliminary investigation.

Surban said the suspect and the victim were in a relationship for three years and that on Nov. 26, the girl went with him to his house and did not come back to her family.

However, the girl had control of her cell phone and was able to tell an older sister of her whereabouts.

The victim decided to leave her lover and come back home on Saturday when the latter’s wife began hurting her.

Abad was arrested that same day after his young girlfriend lodged a complaint with the police.

    Another Pedophilia…You sick Bastard..Child abuse na yan ikulong na yan..

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VPSXDLCQEZGZDJSX32G7PYHNCI Noel

    So the girl left the man because the man’s wife was hurting her not because of the relationship.  These days, a 14 years old girl is matured and sexually active.  Let’s not completely blame the man.

    • suburbanmother

      Huh? Just because someone reaches puberty doesn’t mean they have the mental capacity of an adult. That’s why a 14 year old kid is considered a minor and under a paren’ts care. The 38 year old man does not have any business having sex with a minor and should be charged as a child molestor! I hope this guy rots in jail!

      • jolly_baby

         Naku kung alam mo lang…. kung di man sila payagan sa mga mas matatanda… MAGULAT KA GANO SILA ACTIVE SA KA AGE NILA…. iba na mga teen now…. mga ibang mas me edad aware lang sa activities ng mga teen na yan..

    • Cobra

      yup u have to blame the man cos he have a relationship w/ a minor & not being rich & influential in the Phils.Ask sabit singson his relationship w/ a minor is just ignored by the church & human rights do gooders.Even got the cheek to brag about it on tv.

    • http://www.dafk.net/what/ Kilabot ng mga Balahibo

       Lets just agree that the man has his share of the blame (particularly the legal complaint lodged against him.)

      and that other people, including the girl’s parents, the wife, have their own accountability, for letting it happen in the first place.

      the girl, assuming she did know what she was doing, or that she was already sexually active has her own burden to carry, albeit not with the laws of the republic.

    • ever green

      let’s completely blame the man. Hindi porke mature at sexually active na ung bata at 14 yrs old, e turbuhin na nung 38 yr old. Mas marunong dapat ung matanda kung ano tama at mali, ano ang moral at hindi. Kahit bumukaka ung bata sa harap mo, kung may moral kang tao, hindi mo papatulan.

      • bugoybanggers

        Aba naman, maghunos dili ka sa sinabi mo. BUMUKAKA sa HARAP mo at 14yrs old pa na makatas? Mga LALAKI ano ATTACK? yung hindi aatack eh pasensya. Okay kung iisipin mo kamo dapat hindi kasi makokonsiensya ka? OO ikaw lang, kita mo namang LIBOG na LIBOG din si BOY TIGAS. Makokontrol mo ba?

    So 11 pa lang yung bata ka-relasyon na nung suspect. Maliwanag na pedophilia na yan. Dapat rin kasuhan ang mga magulang nung bata dahil imposibleng hindi nila alam ang relasyon.Isama na rin yung asawa nung suspect. Lahat sila hinayaan lang ang nangyayari.

    • Luthmar

      Excuse me.  I think you have a twisted logic.  The article mentions that the two have been in a relationship for 3 years before he took her to his house.  She was 11 years old when they started.  11 years old are still playing dolls.  What did she know about having a relationship with this guy who was already more than 30 years old.  At 14, she is still a baby.  This relationship is clear statutory rape.  This guy should spend his life in jail.  He is a cradle snatcher, worse, he is a pedophile.  He is a menace in the society.

    • Vertumnus

      Now I know whey we have people preying on the young. It’s because of people like you!
      The age of consent in the Philippines is 18 years old.  Men, sick men will sweet talk a young girl so they can rape her. She’s too young to have sound reasoning, let alone consent and she’s still a young girl.  That’s why we have laws to protect those that cannot protect themselves.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PZCN62UBWNKFSNDJ2D3JQBBBWQ max m

         age of consent is 12yo.read the law clearly

      • Vertumnus

        That’s why the Philippines is a favorite destination for Pedophiles!  The law is ambiguous when it comes to age of consent.  The law needs to be revised to raise the age of consent to 16.  Law not withstanding, it’s disgusting for a 38 year old man to have relation with a 14 years old.

    • RiverHorse

      kaya nga may age of majority at may provisions para sa statutory rape…ang minors (below 18 years old) nde pwede pumirma ng contract o kahit anong legal document, kasi nde sila qualified para makagawa ng legal decision. kahit sabihin nating girlfriend sya nung 38 years old, lalabas na child abuse, kahit 17 years old na yung girl, child abuse pa rin.

  • Vertumnus

    A 38 year old man cannot have a 14 year old “girlfriend”!  That’s PEDOPHILIA and STATUTORY RAPE!!! 

    Some people are just Sick! Sick! Sick!

    • rootsofhealth

      It is definitely statutory rape, but do you notice that even the article doesn’t mention that fact. Possibly because it is so common?

      • demonyado

        That’s because statutory rape, as defined under our law, requires the offended party to be under the age of 12.

      • Vertumnus

        As the article stated, they were in a relation for 3 years, making the girl 11 years old when they started.  That defines his actions as rape.  Under the revised law, Republic Act. No 8353 ” An act expanding the definition of the crime of rape, reclassifying the same as a crime against persons, amending for the purpose Act no. 3815, as amended, otherwise known as the Revised Penal Code, and for other purposes”

        This act was signed into law on 9/30/1997.  

        The above act re-numbers the relevant code to Title Eight Chapter Three Article 266-A. “Rape, When And How Committed.   
        1) By a man who shall have carnal knowledge of a woman under any of the following circumstances: 
        a) Through force, threat, or intimidation; 
        b) When the offended party is deprived [of] reason or otherwise unconscious; 
        c) By means of fraudulent machination or grave abuse of authority; and 
        d) When the offended party is under twelve (12) years of age or is demented.

        International definition consider 18 as the age of consent in the Philippines, children below twelve, no matter if they said yes, will be considered rape of a minor!  He needs good lawyers for sure!

      • marcos_hitler_diktador_tuta

        He needs a good layer like Amalayer.

      • demonyado

        He definitely needs a lawyer.  However, that the article does not mention statutory rape even in light of the fact that their purported relationship began while the offended party was still 11 years old is simply due to the fact that statutory rape is a conclusion of law.  Meaning, there must first be a categorical finding that the accused had carnal knowledge of the offended party while she was still 11 years old before there can be any definitive pronouncement as regards statutory rape.  Everything, as of the moment, are mere allegations.  This explains why there is no mention of statutory rape in the article above.

        Nevertheless, I agree, this is just sick.  

    • bugoybanggers

      Nagmamagaling at nagmamalinis ang karamihan dito. Bakit kung sa mga DAYUHAN, binubugaw pa nga ang mga anak nila. Ang LABO, dito sa PILIPINAS napakaRAMING MATATALINO! Dapat kung totoo man mas maigi pa sigurong na puro BOBO para kung ano ang tama na panlasa ng marami at nahusgahan ng KAMATAYAN.. Patay agad hindi kung ano-anong batas ang dinadahilan. Marami ng batas ang PILIPINAS pero NAPAKABULOK namang ipatupad!

      • Vertumnus

        That’s why we have laws. Filipinos don’t know whats good for them. Society becomes civil when people follow the law. In this case, the law says that the girl is underage and legally cannot consent to a sexual relation with a 38 year old man. A lot of this kind of behavior happens in the Philippines because people always looks the other way and don’t care for the law. To show how wrong they are, those perpetrator should be put in jail. Only when we follow the laws can the Philippines truly mature as a country and deserving joining the rest of the world. We can no longer rely on the “Bahala Na” mentality which is a stupid excuse Pinoys love to use instead of being real and just do the right thing.

      • bugoybanggers

  • lakingbukid

    that dude probably watched the KRIS TV program in October 2012 where Gov.  Singson admitted that he married his current wife when she was only 14 years old. the kid lost her teenage years and  The fact that he married the innocent girl did not justify his pervert action… Public officials like him should be brought to justice to set an example for public officials who thinks that they are above the law. AND KRIS AQUINO should stop patronizing public officials and celebrities who have committed grossly unlawful acts.

    It takes two to Tango. Thats why Im in favor of teenagers being treated as adults in terms of criminal liability.
    Teens aged 13 and up already know what they are doing. If they commit murder, robbery, sell drugsq or in this case having relatinship with Mang Kanor, the maniac, they should face the cnsequences of their actions. This way unscrupulous people will not use and abuse them knowing kids will get away with it.

    Many people may be shocked to learn that in the Philippines, a 12 year old can legally consent to xxx. it is illigal if it is proven it was for money or gain as a result of coercion when the child is under 18. The Philippines has alot of teen pregnancy and STD issues and it has enormous impact on communities and families. With little to no xxx education in schools, many pre-adolecent and teen children simply has no clue what they are doing. We can hope this will change with the new law.

       Ang kaso kahit ilipat di naman nagbabago. Doon naman sa nilipatan mamumulut-gata. Bakit kasi di pa payagan magsipag-asawa ang mga pari para malaman nila ang hirap ng pagpapalaki ng anak. Siguro kung pinayagan silang magsipag-asawa sila pa ang kandarapa mag-approve ng RH Bill. Hindi naman sinabi ni Hesukristo na di mag-asawa ang mga pari. Porke ba hindi siya nag-asawa bawal na sila mag-asawa? Meron naman talagang mga taong ayaw magsipag-asawa. Pero yung mga pari na ayaw mag-asawa huwag niyo naman biktimahin ang mga bata pa. Yun na lang na kapareho niyong gurang. he he he

        haha oo nga bakit kaya hindi sila pwedeng magasawa, pero sangkot naman sa pangrape at pang momolestya. . Sa religion kasi nila mga priest sanctified daw sila, pero sa mga ginagawa nila at sa mga paniniwala nila i doubt, meron pa silang ganang tawagin ang sarili nilang father at reverened, most holy hoy tao lang kayo di kayo reverened at most holy yucks kadiri.

    I guess the man should be put in jail forever para di na pamarisan. Somehow di rin naman ito kasalanan lang nang lalaki, the 14 year old lady has her own mind and perhaps like what happened to her. Three years of relationship is not a joke and ganon ito katagal na matatawag nating rape? It is with consent but mali pa rin si lalake dahil alam nyang bawal ito, Mas bata, mas masarap at matindi kaya na praning si manong. Hindi lang parents ang dapat sisihin natin kundi ang mga teens na rin. Kahit anong sabihin ni mother at father kung ginusto na talaga wala talagang magagawa. The reason why I am for RH law since we can protect ourselves sa mga ma mapa nukso na satisfying at pleasurable. Hay nako mga eneng at totoy, makinig sa sinasabi ni father at mother at huwag gagamitin ang laptops sa scandals at YouP*(&^.
