In 2004, he was elected as senator.

Jinggoy is hailed as the second most productive and prolific senator, next to Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago, who filed the most number of bills and resolutions in the Senate.
On July 23, 2007, Estrada was elected as Senate president pro tempore.
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.
Jinggoy was acquitted in the plunder charge.
In 2010, he was re-elected as senator, finishing in the 2nd place. During the opening of the 15th Congress on July 26, 2010, he was re-elected as Senate president pro tempore.
During his stint in the Senate, he had been consistently hailed as one of the very few senators who scored perfect attendance, with no absence or late during the chamber’s plenary sessions.
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.
On September 16, 2017, Sandiganbayan released its resolution granting bail to Sen. Estrada.
Estrada is principal author of the Kasambahay Law, or the law promoting the interests and welfare of the domestic workers in the Philippines. Republic Act 10361, or simply the “Kasambahay Law,” prescribed standards, privileges and rights of the domestic workers.
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.
Jinggoy Estrada Personal life
In 1989, Estrada married Ma. Presentacion “Percy” Vitug with whom he has four children, namely, Janella Marie, Joseph Luis Manuel, Julian Emilio, and Julienne.
