Slander By Deed


ART.359

ELEMENTS:
1. That the offender performs any act not included in any other
    crime against honor;
2. That such act is performed in the presence of other person
    or persons; and
3. That such act casts dishonor, discredit or contempt upon the
   offended party.


Seriousness of slander by deed depends on the social standing
of offended party, the circumstances surrounding the act, the
occasion

Distinctions:
1. Unjust vexation - irritation or annoyance; anything that
   annoys or irritates without justification.
2. Slander by deed - irritation or annoyance + attendant
   publicity and dishonor or contempt.
3. Acts of lasciviousness - irritation or annoyance + any of
   the 3 circumstance provided in Art. 335 on rape (i.e. use of
   force or intimidation; deprivation of reason or rendering
   the offended unconscious; or if offended party was under
   12 years old, together with lewd designs)

ALSO of two kinds:
                   Simple
                   Grave: of a serious nature

ACTUS REUS resulting in ANNOYANCE = UNJUST VEXATION

ACTUS REUS resulting in DAMAGE TO PROPERTY = MALICIOUS MISCHIEF

ACTUS REUS + PUBLICITY resulting in DISHONOR = SLANDER BY DEED

ACTUS REUS + CIRCUMSTANCES IN RAPE (NO CARNAL KNOWLEDGE) + LEWD
DESIGNS = ACTS OF LASCIVIOUSNESS
