Tony lusot sa kasong slight physical injuries
Na-dismiss ang slight physical injuries complaint sa aktor na si Tony Labrusca ng Makati prosecutor’s office.
Ang nag-file ng reklamo kay Labrusca ay si Dennis Ibay, Jr. na nagsabi na nanggulo sa isang house party ang aktor noong nakaraang January 16, 2021.
Ayon kay Makati Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Edmund Seña: “However, the complaint was only filed before this Office on June 04, 2021, or after more than two months from the time of the incident. Considering that the complaint for slight physical injuries against respondent was only filed on June 04, 2021, or after more than two months from the date of its alleged commission, the crime is already extinguished by reason of prescription. Wherefore, premises considered, it is respectfully recommended that the complaint for slight physical injuries against Anthony Angel Jones Labrusca, Jr., a.k.a. ‘Tony Labrusca’ be dismissed on the ground of prescription.”
Nakatanggap na ang legal counsel ni Labrusca na si Atty. Joji Alonso ng kopya ng resolution issued ng Makati City Prosecutor’s Office “motu proprio” (on one’s own initiative) dismissing the case of slight physical injuries on the ground of prescription.
Ayon kay Atty, Alonso: “While the decision of the Honorable Office was based on technical grounds, we remain steadfast that our client is innocent from the aforesaid charge.”
Pero hindi pa raw tapos sa ilang kaso si Labrusca dahil hindi pa nare-resolve ng Makati Prosecutor’s Office ang alleged sexual molestation case laban sa kanya ng isang babae sa same house party. Meron pang two counts of aggravated acts of lasciviousness na ikinaso laban sa aktor. (Ruel Mendoza)
