1. Nestor had an argument with his live-in partner, Honey concerning their son. During
their heated discussion, Nestor intimated to Honey his desire to have sex with her
but the same was thwarted. Frustrated and incensed, Nestor set fire on both the
plastic partition of the room and Honey’s clothes in the cabinet. After realizing what
he did, Nestor attempted to put out the flames but it was too late. This resulted to
the burning of their home and the other neighboring houses. Nestor was forthwith
convicted of destructive arson. Was Nestor’s conviction for the crime of destructive
arson proper?

Ans. Yes, because Nestor had burn their home and the other neighboring houses which
stated in Revised Penal Code Article 320 the first requisite of destructive arson that one or
more buildings or edifices, consequent to one single act of burning or as a result of
simultaneous burnings, or committed on several or different occasions therefore Nestor
violated the RPC Article 320.

2. Distinguish Art. 320 of the Revised Penal Code from P.D. 1613.

Ans. The nature of Destructive Arson is distinguished from Simple Arson by the degree of
perversity or viciousness of the criminal offender. The acts committed under Art. 320 of The
Revised Penal Code constituting Destructive Arson are characterized as heinous crimes "for
being grievous, odious and hateful offenses and which, by reason of their inherent or
manifest wickedness, viciousness, atrocity and perversity are repugnant and outrageous to
the common standards and norms of decency and morality in a just, civilized and ordered
society." On the other hand, acts committed under PD 1613 constituting Simple Arson are
crimes with a lesser degree of perversity and viciousness that the law punishes with a lesser
penalty. In other words, Simple Arson contemplates crimes with less significant social,
economic, political and national security implications than Destructive Arson.

did not permit Pedro to take out one of his taxis. However, Pedro still went out with
a taxi and did not return the taxi on the same day. Is Pedro liable for carnapping
under the Anti-Carnapping Act?

Ans. Yes, because all the elements of carnapping done by Pedro was fully accomplish. First,
Pedro actually take the taxi. Second, the taxi was didn’t belong to Pedro. Third, the taking
of the taxi is without the consent of the owner. Last, Pedro intends to gain from the taxi
that did not return.

4. What is apoderamiento?
Ans. Apoderamiento or unlawful taking to characterize theft in Spanish Law. The Philippine
Supreme Court adopted the thought that there was no need of an intent to permanently
deprive the owner of his property to constitute an unlawful taking. Unlawful taking or
apoderamiento is deemed complete from the moment the offender gains possession of the
thing, even if he has no opportunity to dispose of the same. Unlawful taking means the
deprivation of one’s personal property. It is the element which produces the felony in its
consummated stage. At the same time, without unlawful taking as an act of execution, the
offense could only be attempted theft, if at all.

5. Supposed you are the assigned criminal investigator of a case where burning and
death simultaneously occurred, what should you need to consider in order to
determine the malefactor’s main criminal intent and subsequently what case to
charge the accused?

Ans. It is de riguer to ascertain the main objective of the malefactor: (a) if the main
objective is the burning of the building or edifice, but death results by reason or on the
occasion of arson, the crime is simply arson, and the resulting homicide is absorbed; (b) if,
on the other hand, the main objective is to kill a particular person who may be in a building
or edifice, when fire is resorted to as the means to accomplish such goal the crime
committed is murder only; lastly, (c) if the objective is, likewise, to kill a particular person,
and in fact the offender has already done so, but fire is resorted to as a means to cover up
the killing, then there are two separate and distinct crimes committed—homicide/murder
and arson.

The Fight Against Child Pornography

In recent news article topic, pornography has established itself as perhaps the most
controversial topic arising out of the use of the Internet. The easy availability of this type of
sexually explicit material has caused a panic among government officials, family groups,
religious groups and law enforcement bodies and this panic has been perpetuated in the
media. Rapid grow of internet users as a result of widely open access significantly
contributes to increasing criminal cases particularly child pornography. Internet becomes a
convenient place for users to commit distant crime by accessing porn images or child
photographs as well as child sexual activity. Meanwhile, current methods to prevent and
solve are considered ineffective and conventional. This paper discloses the increasing
number of child pornography and provides solution to overcome it. Meanwhile, child
pornography has grown alarmingly in the Philippines. The offenders are foreigners, with
collaboration from Filipinos who procure Filipino children for child pornography. The news
article about the mother uses her daughter in online child pornography was not common in
the Philippines as we all know that our country become the global epicentre of the live-
stream sexual abuse trade, and many of the victims are children. 

It is almost impossible to withdraw child pornography once it has been placed on the
Internet, and the pain of crime victims lasts long into the future. Such heinous child
pornography crime is unacceptable and the spread and flow of child pornography should be
stopped and eliminated. In order to solve the issue of child pornography, the role that the
police should play through strengthened crackdown is significant, but at the same time, it is
also indispensable to obtain people's understanding and cooperation and take preemptive
measures to prevent the occurrence and expansion of the damage of child pornography and
to enhance the system to protect and support child victims.

petitioners’ case beyond the ambit of said law?

Ans. No, R.A. No. 3019 does not apply to his case because the provision contemplates only
transactions of a pecuniary nature. Since the law punishes a public officer who extends
unwarranted benefits to a private person, petitioner avers that he cannot be held liable for
extending a favor to Mayor Adalim, a public officer. Further, he claims good faith in taking
custody of the mayor pursuant to his duty as a "Provincial Jailer" under the Administrative
Code of 1917. Considering this, petitioner believes himself entitled to the justifying

official, administrative or judicial functions through manifest partiality, evident bad faith or

official functions. He must have acted with manifest partiality, evident bad faith or gross
inexcusable negligence and his action caused any undue injury to any party, including the
government, or gave any private party unwarranted benefits, advantage or preference in
