The Baguio City Jail reported congestion, but they live more dignified lives compared to counterparts in other areas.

As of Oct. 16, the City Jail has 619 inhabitants, with 511 in the male dorm and 108 in the female dorm.

BCJ male and female dorm wardens J/CInsp. Crispin Dornagon, Jr. and J/SInsp. April Rose Ayangwa, respectively, said the male dorm has a 411 percent congestion rate while the female dorm is at 116 percent.

Despite the congestion, both said that the inmates are luckier than their counterparts in other facilities since they each have their own beds.

Of the top crimes charged to male inmates, Dornagon said 290 are drug-related cases or violation of Republic Act 9165 or the Dangerous Drugs Act; 53 are robbery, and seven cases are rape.

The oldest male inmate is 75 years old charged with rape and violation of RA 7610 or the Special Protection of Children Against Abuse, Exploitation, and Discrimination while the youngest is 16 charged with slight physical injuries and rape.

Of the crimes charged to female inmates, Ayangwa said 57 are drug-related cases; 27 for  estafa; 10, theft/ qualified theft; seven for illegal recruitment; three, murder; two for child trafficking; one each for perjury and child abuse.

The oldest female inmate is 70 years old charged with illegal recruitment and estafa while the youngest is 18 charged with violation of sec. 5 of RA 9165.

Both wardens thank the city government led by Mayor Mauricio Domogan, Rep. Mark Go and Vice Mayor Edison Bilog for its continuous support for the city jail’s programs aimed at rehabilitating and reforming inmates.
