With his involvement on the cases, the former mayor was convicted of nine reclusion perpetua in total. And now, more than two decades of serving the consequences, he can possibly be freed through the law signed by former President Noynoy Aquino to decongest overcrowded jails in the country due to his good behavior in jail.

But two decades after, the mayor claimed in an interview based on ABS-CBN report that he was framed up over the deaths of Sarmenta and Gomez. Airing his side, he shared that he has kidney failure and taking medication for his high blood. He believed that he should be freed by October as he has already “served his sentence” and has exhibited good behavior.
