3 suicide attempt on Mon Apr 23, 2012 11:49 pm

for the complainant, it must be noted that for one to incur criminal liability, he must commit a felony. Suicide is not a felony. therefore, no crime was committed. article 4 relate it to article 3.

for the accused/defendant, although he no felony was committed, nevertheless he can be held liable for criminal nagligence article 365.

i beg to disagree...

there is a felony i.e. murder. intent to kill + evident premeditation (he decided to kill himself, thus he intends to commit a felony)

in addition...

one voluntarily committing a crime or misdeamor incurs criminal liability for any wrongful act committed by him, even though it be different from that which he intended to commit. (Wharton's Criminal Law, sec. 87 and cases cited; McClain's Crim. Law, sec. 133 and cases cited; Pettit vs. S., 28 Tex. Ap., 240; Commonwealth vs. Power, 7 Met., 596; Yates vs. People, 32 N.Y., 509; Isham vs. State, 38 Ala., 213; Commonwealth vs. Rogers, 7 Met., 500.)

thus

he [u]may
have committed homicide

RPC art 4 para 1, kung lawful act ang ginawa nya he is exempt from criminal liability but civilly liable, but however as he said in the preceding comment, committing suicide is unlawful act, so the accused has a legal causation for the dead of juan.

There is no crime committed because under Article 4 of the Revised Penal Code, any person who commits a felony even though the wrongful act done be different from which he intended is criminally liable.

As can be gleaned from the above-mentioned provision of law, a person can only be criminally liable for the consequences of his act if his act is indeed criminal. There is no law yet which punishes the act of committing a suicide.

In the case at bar, although Juan is clearly not criminally liable, he is civilly liable for the death of Juan.

I think some authors have a different say on the matter. Some say Pedro may be criminally liable under Art. 365 on Criminal Negligence for negligently killing Juan. There may be no law punishing suicide, but he was negligent in committing the same. Thus, he is liable for the death of Juan.

Really? Some authors? Can you name even just one author in criminal law? Thanks.

A person who is in the verge of committing suicide can't think clearly so article 365 does not apply.

Reckless imprudence resulting to homicide.

Felony is committed by means of Dolo or Culpa.

Here, there is culpa as when Pedro, without intent to kill juan, inflicts injury, thru his overtact(tumalon sa building)which results to the latters untimely death.

Suicide is neither lawful or unlawful.
One thing is for certain, Suicide is not punishable under RPC.
However, having killed someone, with or without intent to kill, as in this case, a result in the attempt to commit suicide is punishable.

To answer the question raised,
Yes, there is a crime committed.
