  1. I hope she gets free and sets a better course for her and her child. It will be unfortunate if she takes the standard path of dropping charges and apologizing. No one should be a punching bag in a relationship.

  2. Steven you bring up an important issue in the Philippine law. This guy won’t learn his lesson if he can pay her off, because money buys forgiveness, on the other hand possibly its a sham and he is the victim. When money is the justice currency, so many ways it can be twisted.

  3. This entire story is made up. I know the true story and as usual u can’t believe everything you read on the Internet. The guy in question is also a mentally disabled veteran. I’m so sick of the lies that spew from there! She was not held against her will either. She could have left at anytime. She chose to stay. If she couldn’t have left don’t u guys think he would have also restricted phone and internet usage! This is ridiculous! There’s a lot of other factors that play a role in this entire story! It will come out but I’m sure it won’t be televised!
