The Office of the Ombudsman ordered Babaran’s dismissal, as approved by Deputy Ombudsman Rodolfo Elman, after finding substantial evidence. It was contained in the teenager’s complaint that on June 19 of year 2015, she was raped by Babaran twice after inviting her to come with him following a youth meeting, and then on September 22 of the same year, she was raped again inside a motel room. She added that Babaran threatened her that if she tells her parents, her family will be ejected from their residence.

It was in February 7, 2017 when the last hearing was held, with the next hearing to happen February 22.
