Accused CANNOT be held liable for more than what he's been charged

What is clear to us is that there were, at least, two acts of attempted rape and consummated rape, committed in light of the testimony of Gilda. The information, however, charged the accused with only one act of rape; hence, consistent with the constitutional right of the accused to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation against him, he cannot be held liable for more than what he was charged. There can only be one conviction for rape if the information charges only one offense, even if the evidence shows three separate acts of sexual intercourse. [G.R. No. 117217. December 2, 1996]
