4 meted life sentences
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Eighteen detention prisoners who are facing criminal charges were sentenced by Regional Trial Courts in Negros Oriental,yesterday in compliance with Supreme Court Office of the Court Administrator memorandum circular No. 204-2015 for all courts in the entire country to render judgment.
The National Judgment Day,now on its second year of implementation, was able to decongest the country's crowded jails and expedited the resolution of cases.
Under the Judgment Day program, detainees who have already served the possible prison terms of their offenses are ordered released even before the court could hand down the decision on their cases.. .
