  • Judge Tolentino's refusal to admit DNA evidence just shows that she wasn't really after the truth. Doesn't she feel guilty for what she did? This is outright denial of justice.
  • Many forget the testimonies of others in the case; the two housemaids, the testimonies of the guard(s) in BF homes, the testimony of the common-law wife of the accomplice policeman. Many also forget that the group were suspects since 1991. Many just focus on the "drug addict" Jessica Alfaro. One should also remember that HW too was sky high on drugs as well, a know druggie, something even the family hasn't denied. HW is GUILTY, if not mistaken identity for another brother, I'm sure you've heard the rumors already. Who was more closely associated with the other convicted felons? HW or?

  • Dissenting justices say Alfaro story ‘incredible’

    Monday, 29 January 2007

    By Jomar Canlas Reporter

    DOCUMENTARY evidence must prevail over the incredible testimony of star witness Jessica Alfaro, according to dissenting Court of Appeals justices who believe the Vizconde massacre accused should be acquitted. Associate Justice Renato Dacudao wrote the 32-page dissenting opinion, with Associate Justice Lucenito Tagle as the other dissenter in the special five-man division of the Special Former Tenth Division.

    The CA, 3-2, voted to affirm the guilty *****-homicide verdicts on Hubert Jeffrey Webb, Antonio Lejano, Michael Gatchalian, Hospicio Fernandez, Miguel Rodriguez and Peter Estrada.

    Davudao wrote that documentary evidence proving Webb’s presence in the United States during the commission of the crime should be given weight.

    “Between the incredible and implausible testimony of the government’s star witness Jessica Alfaro and the public or official documents presented by accused-appellant, Hubert Webb, I am more inclined to give greater weight and credence to the latter,” Dacudao said.


    He expressed disbelief that documents presented in the lower court, including the documents from the documents from the United States, could have been fabricated.

    Dacudao said he could not believe even Sen. Freddie Webb could pressure officials of the US Department of State and in the US Department of Justice.


    Dacudao called Alfaro a polluted source whose testimony was tutored.

    “Ms. Alfaro’s testimony puts too severe a strain on the credulity of this Court. I think it takes the faith of 20-men to believe her extraordinary tale,” he said.


    Tagle argued that the testimony of Hubert’s laundrywoman Mila Gaviola, of seeing blood on his shirt, should not be given credit because it was never submitted as evidence.

    In his 22-page dissenting opinion, Tagle also chided then Paranaque RTC Judge, now CA Justice Amelita Tolentino, for denying the application of the accused for a DNA test.

    “I find it unjust that his motion as well as that of appellant Webb’s for DNA test were denied by the RTC ratiocinating that at that time there is no one in the country who had the necessary knowledge and expertise to testify on DNA examination,” Tagle pointed out.

    The believe of Tolentino that the ***** found in the genetalia of Carmela Vizconde, after raping and killing her, is tampered is “grossly erroneous.”

    They only filed the Case against Hubert after they "found" Alfaro.


    June 1995—Jessica Alfaro, a confessed drug addict who claims to have witnessed the massacre, testifies before the court.

    August 1995—Based on Alfaro’s eyewitness account, the justice department finds probable cause to file ***** and murder charges against Hubert Webb, Antonio “Tony Boy” Lejano, Michael Gatchalian, Miguel Rodriguez, Peter Estrada and Pyke Fernandez before the Parañaque regional trial court.

    Two other suspects, Joey Filart and Dong Ventura, remain at large to this day.

    The defense also tried to prove Alfaro's motive in testifying against petitioners. She was questioned about her brother, Patrick Alfaro, and her uncle, Roberto Alfaro. Jessica Alfaro allegedly admitted that her brother, Patrick, was a drug addict and was arrested once by the NBI for illegal possession of drugs and that he is presently in the United States. When defense counsel inquired about the circumstances of Patrick's departure for the United States, the prosecution objected to the questions on the ground of irrelevancy. Respondent judge sustained the objection.

    Jessica Alfaro is a Snitch!
    Sometimes law enforcement officials seek out snitches and give them extensive background on cases — essentially feeding them the information they need to provide false testimony.

    The Innocence Project uses DNA evidence to help exonerate wrongfully convicted people.


    Facts on Post-Conviction DNA Exonerations


    There have been 261 post-conviction DNA exonerations in the United States.

    • The first DNA exoneration took place in 1989. Exonerations have been won in 34 states; since 2000, there have been 194 exonerations.
    • 17 of the 261 people exonerated through DNA served time on death row.
    • The average length of time served by exonerees is 13 years. The total number of years served is approximately 3,337.
    • The average age of exonerees at the time of their wrongful convictions was 27.
  • If SC should acquit him based only on lower court's failure to admit DNA test evidence, Hubert Webb may have the right to file for state compensation for his hardships and sufferings in prison.

    How much is his 15 years?

  • Now in an open letter published just days ago in several metropolitan broadsheets, lawyer Mario E. Ongkiko, Rene A.V. Saguisag, Florente Arceo-Bautista and Jose Luis V. Agcaoili have taken aim at the Court of Appeals appointment of Judge Tolentino – and of course drawn blood. Gahd, the gall of this woman! The four lawyers aver that "unable to moderate her ambitions, evincing conduct unbecoming, she applied for a seat in the Supreme Court, directly, in her letter dated November 15, 2000 addressed to the JBC!" And then again, the press blurbs on her appointment said Tolentino passed the 1968 bar exams with a rating of 91.5 percent. The truth? She only got a grade of 77.5 percent, according to the quartet of lawyers who defended Hubert Webb.


    How did Judge Amelita Tolentino get her Court of Appeals seat?

    According to the four aforementioned lawyers, she is a townswoman (Lubao) of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo who may not have known about the "horror stories" stored mid-stream in her judicial career. It is also mentioned that Rep. Peter Cayetano "now sits in the JBC where his father, Sen. Renato Cayetano, used to." Well! Sorry, Rene, my friend, but you remain vivid in my mind as the private prosecutor during the Vizconde trial who attended prime witness Jessica Alfaro – a drug addict and a liar – with the meticulous care and extravagant punctilio normally reserved for the Princess of Wales or the Duchess of Windsor. You were such a hound for publicity, Mr. Senator, and, forgive me, you still are.

  • Compensation for person wrongfully convicted urged

    By MARIO B. CASAYURAN

    A person wrongfully convicted of a crime must be compensated by the State, Senator Loren Legarda said on Thursday.

    This came after Legarda filed Senate Bill 1409 and stressed the principle that the State is the guardian of the people’s rights and is thus mandated to protect the rights of persons wrongfully convicted of a crime.

    The Legarda measure seeks to compensate the victim by as much as twice the amount of his or her income during the year prior to his or her incarceration or the amount of P100,000 for each year of incarceration whichever is higher to indemnify him or her for the loss, injury and damage brought about by such wrongful conviction.

    Legarda conceded that ‘’no justice system is perfect.’’

    ‘’There have been certain cases when the Supreme Court, upon review, reversed the decisions of the lower courts and decided to acquit the person wrongfully convicted,’’ she said.

    She stressed that a Supreme Court’s reversal of the ruling of the lower court consequently means that a person not otherwise guilty of the crime for which he or she was charged had been jailed for a crime he or she did not commit.

    The measure requires that the ‘’claimant’’ should have established the following by clear and convincing evidence:

    -He was unjustly convicted of a crime and subsequently sentenced to a term of imprisonment, and has served all or any part of his sentence.
    -He did not commit the crime for which was convicted.
    -He did not, by his own conduct, cause or bring about his conviction.

    Kelan ba lalabas ang hatol ng Supreme Court?
  • The judge was obviously biased.

    A junkie witness that changes her sworn statement drastically was deemed reliable enough for a conviction. Beyond the shadow of a doubt my *****$.

    The then US Secretary of state certified Webb's presence in the US as did numerous witnesses more sober.

    And now missing ***** samples?

    I would so hate to be Jessica Alfaro right now.
