MOTION FOR LEAVE OF COURT


To File Demurrer To Evidence
__________________________

ACCUSED, CHITO DEL PRADO y ESPENA, through


the undersigned counsel, unto this Honorable Court,
respectfully move for Leave of Court to allow accused to file
DEMURRER TO EVIDENCE, for the reasons therein stated,
and that the same be served upon the complainant, in
accordance with law.

1. That herein accused is presently being indicted for


RECKLESS IMPRUDENCE RESULTING TO SERIOUS
PHYSICAL INJURIES under Criminal Case No. 3448 filed
before this Honorable Court against the herein accused;

2. That prosecution had already rested its case on


October 12, 2016 without the Principal Complainant alleged
victim testifying thereto;
3. That in an Order, dated 11 January 2017,
undersigned counsel, upon motion, was directed by this
Honorable Court to file DEMURER TO EVIDENCE within
TEN (10) DAYS from receipt of the Order to file the same,
copy of the said Order was personally received by the
undersigned counsel on 30 January 2017;

4. That the undersigned has until February 9, 2017


within which to file the said Motion for Leave of Court
together with the attached Demurrer to Evidence to this
Honorable Court. Hence, Leave of Court to File Demurrer to
Evidence is hereby requested on the following grounds to
wit:

I. AFTER THE PROSECUTION HAS


COMPLETED THE PRESENTATION OF ITS
EVIDENCE, UPON THE FACTS AND THE LAW,
THE PROSECUTION FAILED TO ADDUCE
SUFFICIENT EVIDENCES TO CONVICT THE
ACCUSED BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT.

II. ALL THE EVIDENCES SOUGHT TO BE


ADMITTED ARE MERELY CORROBORATIVE
AND COLLABORATIVE IN NATURE. IT MUST BE
STRESSED IN THIS PROCEEDINGS THAT THE
PRINCIPAL COMPLAINANT-VICTIM OR
PRINCIPAL EVIDENCE UPON WHICH THE
PROSECUTION RESTS ITS CASE WAS NEVER
PRESENTED. THUS IN THE CASE OF PEOPLE
VS. MARCOS, ET. AL., 70 PHIL. 468-480, THE
HONORABLE SUPREME COURT STATED:

WHERE THE PRINCIPAL AND


BASIC EVIDENCE UPON WHICH THE
PROSECUTION RESTS ITS CASE
FAILS, ALL EVIDENCE INTENDED TO
SUPPORT OR CORROBORATE IT
MUST LIKEWISE FAIL.

THUS, IN VIEW OF THE


PRONOUNCEMENT OF THE SUPREME COURT
IN THE ABOVE-MENTIONED CASE, THE
HONORABLE COURT MUST NEITHER FIND IT
NECESSARY OR PROFITABLE TO EXAMINE THE
CORROBORATIVE EVIDENCE BY THE
PROSECUTION AS IT HAS NO LEG TO STAND
ON OR HAS NO LEGAL BASIS FOR ITS
ADMISSION.

PRAYER

WHEREFORE, premises considered, it is most


respectfully prayed of this Honorable Court to GRANT Leave
of Court to the accused to file demurrer to evidence.

It is further prayed, that in case leave is granted, that


the herein attached DEMURRER TO EVIDENCE BE
ADMITTED, RESOLVED and GRANTED and that the case
be finally DISMISSED and that proper summons be served
in accordance with the Rules of Court.

It is finally prayed, that, in case, this Motion for Leave of


Court to file Demurrer of Evidence be denied, it is
respectfully prayed that accused be allowed to present his
evidences.

Other relief and remedies as may be deemed just and


equitable under the premises are likewise prayed for.

Sorsogon City, for Barcelona Sorsogon, Philippines.


February 3, 2017.

RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED.
