0 818

After spending 15 years in prison for the 1991 Visconde massacre, Hubert Webb is trying to start over again by joining the politics.

Webb, son of former senator and basketball legend Freddie Webb, has filed his certificate of candidacy for councilor of the 1st District of Parañaque City.

He is running as an independent candidate. His brother Jason is in his last term as city councilor.

Now 46, Webb was the primary accused in the brutal murders of sisters Carmela and Jennifer Visconde and their mother Estrellita in their BF Homes Parañaque residence on June 30, 1991.

On  January 6, 2000, the Parañaque Regional Trial Court sentenced him to life imprisonment, along with co-accused Antonio Lejano II, Peter Estrada, Hospicio Fernandez, Michael Gatchalian and Miguel Rodriguez.

The Supreme Court, however, acquitted them on December 14, 2010 after 15  years and four months of imprisonment.
