I have a question in the following scenario (real life story): A group of male friends have sex with a girl friend (a common friend of one of the guy), to which the latter gave her consent and even inititate the act. After several weeks, here comes the girl filing a complaint for rape against the 4 guys by the compulsion of the ex-boyfriend of the girl who is a married man. Before the said filing, the girl already talked to them ensuring them that she will not file a complaint since it is a concensus act and that her ex-boyfriend only tries to extort money to these guys.

for the accused what is the possible course of action, considering that the girl already filed a case to the fiscal and now the case is already at the RTC. (take note: there is no PI conducted)

I am hoping that you will answer my query.

Get a lawyer. I am very careful about giving advice on cases that are already pending in court because of the fact that it is sub judice. Furthermore, I cannot give an intelligent opinion because I do not know the whole story and if ever I give an opinion it might create confusion. Trust the lawyer that handles your case- ask him/her.

That is the recourse that I have told them, to secure a lawyer first, until now I am not sure if they already hired one. However, as per advise of one of the accused, the case is now with the RTC, without the fiscal conducting a Preliminary investigation and they were not able to file the necessary Answer to the Complaint.

They really need to get a lawyer. Certain remedies are available only in specific stages of the case and are deemed waived once there is failure to resort to it. It is very important to arm yourself with a lawyer as soon as a case is filed against you.
