In the small town of Saguday, Quirino, a teenager was arrested for allegedly raping his younger sister.
The boy was a 17-year-old, and the rape was committed twice, in separate instances. One was in September 2013, and the other was in January 2014.
According to reports, the girl didn’t immediately report the rape since she was afraid that her older brother might get angry at her.
Under R.A. 9344, otherwise known as Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act, a child 15 years old or below at the time of the commission of the offense shall be exempt from criminal liability.
If one committed the crime between the ages of 16 to 18, he shall be likewise exempt from criminal liability and shall undergo an intervention program, unless he acted with discernment.
At the moment, the said teenager was placed under the social welfare office’s custody.
