Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 77 last Tuesday acquitted Pulmano due to the prosecution’s failure to prove her guilt, reports said.

“Although the court is not certain as to her innocence, it is also not certain to her guilt; hence, it is its duty to acquit her,” said QC RTC branch 77 Judge Vivencio Baclig in his 10-page decision.

Atty. Joji Alonso, Mercado's lawyer, sent a statement to Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP) stating their dismay on the court's decision to acquit Pulmano.
