Akuapem Poloo’s appeal dismissed; continues her 90- day jail term

Actress and Social media influencer, Rosemond Alade Brown aka Akuapem Poloo has been asked by the Accra High Court to continue her 90 day jail term.

Akuapem Poloo appeared in court after allegedly displaying her naked picture together with her son on social media.

Poloo was charged with publication of obscene material, two counts of engaging in domestic violence, pleaded guilty after pleading not guilty from the onset.

Poloo was, however, granted bail in the sum of GHS 100,000 with four sureties, two to be justified with landed property worth GHS100, 000 after serving few days out of the 90-day jail term.

Lawyers for Poloo appealed against her sentence arguing that it was harsh considering that fact that she was a first time offender and she had pleaded guilty.

Poloo in her application for bail, contended that her days of incarceration was so short and if not admitted to bail immediately, by the time the appeal was heard, she would have finished serving her sentence.

In her substantive appeal, she prayed the High Court to convict her to a fine instead of serving a custodial sentence.

But in a latest development, The High Court in Accra has dismissed the appeal filed by Akuapem Poloo which sought to challenge the 90-day jail term handed to her by the Accra Circuit Court

The actress will therefore continue his 90- day jail term
