On August 15, 2007, the Supreme Court voted 13-0 to uphold the Sandiganbayan's decision to grant his bail in connection with his plunder case before the graft court. His father, former president Joseph "Erap" Estrada was the main accused in that plunder case, and was subsequently convicted. However, Erap was immediately pardoned by then Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. On September 11, 2007 Estrada introduced Senate bill 1556, proposing to make ROTC mandatory for all college students.

In 2010, he was reelected as senator, finishing in the 2nd place. During the opening of the 15th Congress on July 26, 2010, he was reelected as Senate president pro tempore.

He is presently accused of another plunder charge at the Ombudsman relating to Janet Lim Napoles' pork barrel scam involving P10 billion of the people's money. Two other senators--Juan Ponce Enrile and Bong Revilla--as well as more than 2 dozens individuals are charged with him.

Hong Kong Airport incident

In August 2010, Estrada claimed that while traveling to Hong Kong, he experienced a backlash of the emotions surrounding the death of 8 Chinese nationals from Hong Kong during the 2010 Manila hostage crisis. According to him, as he passed through the immigration desk in Hong Kong, officers threw back his passport at him after checking it.

Estrada said the officer may not have known who he was because he used a "regular passport" for personal travel. He also said that he "understood the pain being felt by many Hong Kong nationals".

According to Apple Daily, the Hong Kong immigration department recorded that Estrada visited Hong Kong with a diplomat passport, and that from an alleged video surveillance record, he and three other Filipinos were accompanied by staff from the Philippine embassy and had arranged to go through the privileged passage for diplomats. The immigration officer handed back the passport to the Philippines embassy staff, not to Estrada.

Personal life

In 1989, Estrada married Ma. Presentacion "Precy" Vitug with whom he has four children, namely, Janella Marie, Joseph Luis Manuel, Julian Emilio and Julienne.
