Repost: Cebu Prosecutor Lowers Rape Charge Against Noven Belleza to Sexual Assault

After spending three nights under police custody, Tawag ng Tanghalan’s first grand champion Noven Belleza can now go home.

The Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office has downgraded the case filed against the singing sensation from rape to sexual assault.

Unlike rape, sexual assault is a bailable offense. Cebu City Assistant Prosecutor Ma. Theresa Casiño, who perused the evidence presented to her, ruled that the proper case to be filed in court against Belleza should be sexual assault.

Bail was recommended at P120,000.

Belleza’s lawyer Leilani Villarino said they opted to waive their right to a preliminary investigation which could have given them the chance to refute the allegations hurled against her client at the prosecutor’s office.

“We will answer everything during court trial. What is important now is he (Belleza) will be able to post bail,” Villarino told the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“For now, he enjoys the presumption of innocence,” she added.

Belleza, a rice farmer from Negros Occidental, was named grand champion in last March’s Tawag ng Tanghalan, a talent search aired on ABS-CBN’s noontime program “Showtime.”

Last Saturday, Belleza performed as guest in a comedy concert of the noontime show’s host Vice Ganda at the IEC Pavilion in Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City.

After the concert, at around 11 p.m., the 22-year-old singer was arrested by operatives of the Mabolo Police Station for allegedly molesting a 19-year-old local performer who also competed in the Tawag ng Tanghalan singing contest.

Police Officer 1 Ma. Theresa Talisic of the Women and Children’s Protection Desk of the Cebu City Police Office said the victim claimed that she was sexually molested by Belleza around 2 p.m. last Saturday, July 15, in a condominium in Barangay Lahug where the singer was staying.

The young woman claimed that Belleza inserted his finger into her vagina.

About 14 hours after his arrest, Belleza complained of chest pains, prompting the police to place him under hospital arrest in Barangay Banilad, Cebu City.

Prosecutor Casiño had to go to the hospital on Tuesday morning to conduct an inquest proceeding—a mandatory procedure after the arrest of a person. The prosecutor found sufficient basis to indict Belleza on charges of sexual assault.

According to Villarino, Belleza’s lawyer, a complaint of rape can be filed by a woman when a man forcibly penetrates her with his penis.

On the other hand, sexual assault can be slapped against a person who inserts his or her fingers or any other object into the genitals of another person.

Based on the investigation of the police, Belleza and the victim knew each other and were text mates.  SFM

  2. So if a finger is inserted in a vagina without consent is not considered RAPE? What is the legal definition of rape in the philippines? Isn't this a legal definition:
    "unlawful sexual intercourse or any other sexual penetration of the vagina, anus, or mouth of another person, with or without force, by a sex organ, other body part, or foreign object, without the consent of the victim" (google)

    1. 12:43AM, as stated in the news above-mentioned, under the Revised Penal Code of the Philippines, a complaint of RAPE can be filed by a woman when a man forcibly penetrates her with his "penis".

      On the other hand, SEXUAL ASSAULT can be slapped against a person who inserts his or her "fingers or any other object" into the genitals of another person.

      Not everything can be referred to google. We are talking about legalities here and the RPC is the primary source. Belleza committed a felony by acts of lasciviousness and not rape nor rape by sexual assault.

      Delete
    14. 4:43 first time ko mag comment dito. hindi ko lang kaya tanggapin yung sinabi mo. unang una, mutual consent is required for any sexual act. pag wala nun, kahit pa nasa condo ng guy si girl (and take note, it's 2pm not 2am), kahit pa textmates sila, it does not give a guy the right to do whatever he likes to the girl. kahit pa nga sa mag-asawa di ba? there's what we call marital rape. dahil pag sinabi ng lalaki ng babae o lalaki na ayaw niya pero na-force pa rin siya, that still constitutes rape. or in noven's case, sexual assault. kaya maraming biktima ang nananahimik na lang kasi na-rape na siya, sinisisi pa siya ng kagaya mo.

  11. Maaring hindi pera, consider din ang nagagawa ng inggit sa isang tao, maraming kaibigan/kakilala si Noven na kontisera/kontisero, talo nya silang lahat, let's not judge him yet, nakasampa na ang kaso

  12. Ayaw makipag settle, so either justice ang habol nila or something else. And bakit hinatid nung girl dahil daw para safe si noven eh meron namang dalawang kasama?

    1. walang kasama si Noven nung ipinasyal ng girl. Yung dalawang kasama ay nasa kwarto ni Noven. Sa lobby lang siya inihatid at 2 PM pero nakigamit siya ng CR sa room kasi ang alam niya may mga kasama sa kwarto pero paglabas niya ng CR silang dalawa na lang ni Noven.
