Mutilation


ART.262

KINDS OF MUTILATION:
1. Intentionally mutilating another by depriving him, totally or
   partially, of some essential organ for reproduction.
2. Intentionally making other mutilation, i.e. lopping, clipping
   off any part of the body of the offended party, other than the
   essential organ for reproduction, to deprive him of that
   part of his body.

ELEMENTS OF THE FIRST KIND OF MUTILATION:
1. Castration, i.e. mutilation of organs necessary for generation
   such as the penis or ovarium; and
2. Purposely and deliberately.

In the first kind of mutilation, the castration must be made
purposely. Otherwise, it will be considered as mutilation of the
second kind.

Mayhem refers to any other intentional mutilation.

Under R.A. 7610, the penalty for the second type of mutilation
shall be one degree higher when the victim is below 12 years old.

Intent to mutilate must be established. If there is no intent,
the crime is only serious physical injury.
