RJ Raqueño was sentenced by Eastern Court Magistrate Peter Yu to two months in jail for each of the two occasions he assaulted his girlfriend, a mother of a young child, in their rented room on Chun Yeung St in North Point in November last year.

But the magistrate ordered the sentences to overlap by a month, resulting in a three-month jail term.
Raqueño was found guilty of the two assault charges at the end of a trial on Apr 4.

In mitigation, the defense lawyer said Raqueño is very remorseful and still loves his girlfriend, although his affection has been unrequited since the assaults were committed.
The lawyer cited a medical report stating that the victim’s injuries from the assaults were not serious. He also said there were no aggravating circumstances such as the use of weapons.

The lawyer pleaded for a lenient sentence on Raqueño, who arrived in Hong Kong in 2007 and is supporting his three children in the Philippines.

But the magistrate said that although the injury the woman suffered from being kicked in the leg by Raqueño did not require hospitalization, she was also strangled, bitten on her left arm, and hit in the eye by the defendant.  Vir B. Lumicao
