The 15-year old teenager who fatally stabbed his teacher at the Pedro “Oloy” N. Roa High School in Barangay Canitoan, Cagayan de Oro City will likely be exempted from criminal liability and be subjected to an intervention program, based on RA 9344, otherwise known as Comprehensive Juvenile Justice and Welfare System Act of 2006 or the “Pangilinan Law”.

Section 6 of RA 9344 states:

SEC. 6. Minimum Age of Criminal Responsibility. – A child fifteen (15) years of age or under at the time of the commission of the offense shall be exempt from criminal liability. However, the child shall be subjected to an intervention program pursuant to Section 20 of this Act.

A child above fifteen (15) years but below eighteen (18) years of age shall likewise be exempt from criminal liability and be subjected to an intervention program, unless he/she has acted with discernment, in which case, such child shall be subjected to the appropriate proceedings in accordance with this Act.

The exemption from criminal liability herein established does not include exemption from civil liability, which shall be enforced in accordance with existing laws.
