Akuapem Poloo to serve 82 days in jail

The Criminal Court 1 Division of the High Court has asked socialite Rosemond Brown aka Akuapem Poloo to go and serve her 82 days jail term left.

The court threw out an appeal filed by lawyers of the actress on Wednesday, December 1.

Akuapem Poloo was handed a 90-day jail term by an Accra Circuit Court for publishing obscene material and violating the dignity and integrity of her seven-year-old son in a nude photo she posted on social media in June 2020.

Though she served a period into her term, her lawyers appealed the judgement considering it too harsh.

She was subsequently granted a ¢80,000 bail, pending the determination of the appeal.

On Wednesday, the Court presided by Justice Ruby Aryeetey found her appeal without merit, therefore, ordered her to go and continue her 90-day imprisonment.

The court also ordered that her son should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of him, while his mother serves her sentence at the Nsawam Prison.
