The High Court in Accra has dismissed an appeal filed by Rosemond Alade Brown a.k.a. Akuapem Poloo which sought to challenge the 90-day jail term handed to her by the Accra Circuit Court on April 16 this year.
The socialite was jailed 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 GH¢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 ordered that in the absence of the convict, Akuapem Poloo’s child should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of.
Reacting to the news, many twitter users have expressed empathy, ishing the socialite the very best of luck.
