Actress and socialite, Akuapem Poloo, has been jailed three months after her conviction on charges of the publication of obscene material and domestic violence.
The actress popularly known as Rosemond Brown was found guilty of posting a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son on his birthday on June 30, 2020.
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 in 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. Our sources in the courtroom revealed that Akuapem Poloo who was sobbing all day broke down in tears in the courtroom.
The court had court deferred her sentencing to today, April 16, 2021, for her to undergo a pregnancy test to ensure she was not pregnant before her sentencing is passed.
Before her sentencing, the presiding judge confirmed that the actress was not pregnant after her test came out negative.
The pregnancy test ordered by the court is a requirement by law to ensure that, before a woman who pleaded guilty in court is sentenced, the court should know her status.
Therefore she was remanded into custody for the prosecution to take her to any Government hospital to conduct the pregnancy test and produce the results today.
The outspoken actress is facing three charges of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
Rosemond, who displayed her naked picture with her son on social media on June 30, 2020, pleaded not guilty to all the charges.
