Medical evidence of NON-virgin state sufficient to sustain RAPE conviction

The denial by the accused cannot prevail over the clear and positive testimony of the complainant. Thus, in People vs. Joaquin, this Court ruled that the testimony of the complainant herself, supported by the medical evidence of her non-virgin state, is sufficient to sustain the conviction of the accused. [G.R. No.122359. November 28, 1996]
