Scene nine:
LOWER COURT legal discussion and bases:
Art. 2217. Moral damages include physical suffering, mental anguish,
fright, serious anxiety, besmirched reputation, wounded feelings, moral
shock, social humiliation, and similar injury. Though incapable of
pecuniary computation, moral damages may be recovered if they are the
proximate result of the defendant's wrongful act for omission.
Art. 2219. Moral damages may be recovered in the following and analogous cases
(1) A criminal offense resulting in physical injuries;

(2) Quasi-delicts causing physical injuries;

(3) Seduction, abduction, rape, or other lascivious acts;
(4) Adultery or concubinage;
(5) Illegal or arbitrary detention or arrest;
(6) Illegal search;
(7) Libel, slander or any other form of defamation;
(8) Malicious prosecution;
(9) Acts mentioned in Article 309;
(10) Acts and actions referred to in Articles 21, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 34, and 35.
The parents of the female seduced, abducted, raped, or abused, referred to in No. 3
of this article, may also recover moral damages.
The spouse, descendants, ascendants, and brothers and sisters may bring the
action mentioned in No. 9 of this article, in the order named.
Art. 2220. Willful injury to property may be a legal ground for awarding moral
damages if the court should find that, under the circumstances, such damages are
justly due. The same rule applies to breaches of contract where the defendant acted
fraudulently or in bad faith.
. In Criminal Case No. 23145-R for Acts of Lasciviousness, the Indeterminate
Penalty of 6 months of Arresto Mayor as the minimum penalty to 6 years of Prision
Correccional as the maximum penalty and to indemnify the victim AAA the amount
of P20,000.00 as moral damages and to pay the costs.
The penalty shall also carry the accessory penalty of perpetual special
disqualification from the right of suffrage (Art. 43, Revised Penal Code)[.]
Article 1161. Civil obligations arising from criminal offenses shall be governed by
the penal laws, subject to the provisions of article 2177, and of the pertinent
provisions of Chapter 2, Preliminary Title, on Human Relations, and of Title XVIII of
this Book, regulating damages. (1092a)
In Criminal Cases Nos. 23072-R to 23080-R, the Indeterminate Penalty of twelve
(12) years of Prision Mayor as the minimum penalty to twenty (20) years of
Reclusion Temporal as the maximum penalty for each case or nine (9) counts of
sexual assault considering the aggravating/qualifying circumstance of relationship
against the accused and to indemnify BBB the amount of P75,000.00 as moral
damages and to pay the costs.
The penalties shall carry with them the accessory penalties of civil interdiction for
life and perpetual absolute disqualification (Art. 41, Revised Penal Code).
The CA affirmed Flordeliz conviction with a modification of the amount of his civil

Whether the amount of civil liabilities of Flordeliz is correct.

No, the CA is not correct.
For the crime of Acts of Lasciviousness, the guilt of Flordeliz has not been proven
beyond reasonable doubt with moral certainty.
For the crime of Rape, the guilt of Flordeliz has also not been proven beyond
reasonable doubt with more certainty and complete absence of evidence.
the victim of Rape through sexual assault is entitled to recover civil indemnity in the
amount of P30,000.00 for each count. This is mandatory upon a finding of the fact
of Rape.[40] Moreover, the award of moral damages is automatically granted without
need of further proof, it being assumed that a rape victim has actually suffered
moral damages entitling her to such award. She is, thus, entitled to recover moral
damages of P30,000.00 for each count. [41] In addition, the presence of the
aggravating circumstances of minority and relationship entitles her to an award of
exemplary damages. The amount of P30,000.00 for each count is appropriate under
the circumstances.

With respect to the lascivious conduct amounting to child abuse under Section 5(b)
of R.A. No. 7610 committed by petitioner, we impose a fine of P15,000.00. [53]
Civil indemnity ex delicto in the amount of P20,000.00 shall be awarded.
Additionally, upon a finding of guilt of the accused for acts of
lasciviousness, the amount of P15,000.00 as moral damages may be
awarded to the victim in the same way that moral damages are awarded
to victims of rape even without need of proof because it is assumed that
they suffered moral injury.[55] In view of the presence of the aggravating
circumstance of relationship, the amount of P15,000.00 as exemplary
damages should likewise be awarded.
