Popular Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Brown, also known as Akuapem Poloo, has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for posting nude photos with her seven-year-old son on social media.
Rosemond, who had displayed her naked pictures with her son on social media on 30 June 2020, was arraigned on three counts of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity, specifically conducts that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
Akuapem pleaded “not guilty” when she was first arraigned but changed it to “guilty” when re-arraigned on Wednesday, 14 April.
Her Honour, Christiana Cann of Accra Circuit Court who convicted her said the court would not temper justice with mercy in order to bring sanity to social media.
The plea by her fellow colleague entertainers, and her mother to have her released fell on the deaf ears of the judge.
The court deferred her sentencing to Friday, April 16 for her to undergo a pregnancy test in compliance with the law regarding a woman who has pleaded guilty in court, the pregnancy test came out negative, and the sentence was finally given on the same day.
