Lance Corporal Joseph Scott Pemberton is asking the Court of Appeals to reverse the Olongapo City Regional Trial Court’s decision that found him guilty of homicide for the killing of transgender Jennifer Laude.
Atty. Harry Roque represented the Laude family as a private prosecutor.
Pemberton’s lawyer, Atty. Rowena Garcia Flores sent a notice dated 18 April 2016 to the Olongapo court that he has filed an appeal to the Court of Appeals. He is also appealing Judge Roline Jinez Jabalde’s decision to deny him bail, even as she reduced his sentence.
Here is a copy of Pemberton’s appeal.
