Akuapem Poloo to serve 90-day jail term after losing appeal

The High Court in Accra presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey has dismissed the appeal filed by Rosemond Alade Brown challenging her 90 days custodial sentence.

What this means is that Akuapem Poloo will now serve her 90 days jail terms imposed on her by the Circuit Court.

Ruling on the application by the convict asking the court to set aside the custodial sentence and replace it with a fine, the court said, the 90 days custodial sentence imposed on her was not excessive and harsh.

The court while affirming the Circuit Court decision said, the punishment imposed was to cause much harm to the convict which will then become a deterrent to herself and others.

To this end, the court said, the decision of the Circuit was right and the High Court will not interfere with it.

The court has also ordered that her son should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of him.

Akuapem Poloo is currently sobbing while the court has indicated, she should continue her jail terms from where she left off from Nsawam.

April 16, judgement

On April 16, Actress and social media personality Rosemond Brown popularly known as Akuapem Poloo was jailed 90 days or three months by an Accra Circuit Court.

This was after Akuapem Poloo pleaded guilty to three charges.

She was charged with the publication of nude pictures with her seven-year-old son. She changed her not guilty plea to guilty before being convicted.

She was sentenced to 90 days on each count but the court said, the sentence must run concurrently.
This means she will only serve a 90-day jail term which is three months.

The Court presided over by Her Honour Mrs. Christiana Cann, said such cases are becoming prevalent in society, and Institutions including the court must act.

The court said it took into consideration all the plea for mitigation before arriving at the decision.
