Not necessary to commit RAPE in isolated place; not respecter of time, place

We have long adhered to the rule that it is not necessary for the rape to be committed in an isolated place; rapists bear no respect for locale and time when they carry out their evil deed. In the cases at bar, the rapes were committed inside a dwelling which had not been proved to be without walls and in the presence of children who were fast asleep. Rape has been successfully consummated in paces where people congregate, like parks or school premises, and even in a house where there are other occupants. [G.R. No. 119405-06. November 21, 1996]
