Husband meted six years
for psychological violence


A Bacolod bank security guard was sentenced to six years and one day imprisonment yesterday for “psychological violence” against his family, a violation of Republic Act 9262, or the Anti Violence Against Women and Children Act.

Bacolod Regional Trial Court Judge Philadelfa Pagapong-Agraviador sentenced the 51-year-old guard whose name, along with those of his wife and children, are being withheld by the DAILY STAR because the case falls under the Family Court.

His wife, 57, a public high school teacher, told the court she and her husband who were married in December 1986 have three children.moremoremore
