Kuami Eugene joins other celebrities to plead on behalf of remorseful actress.
Some Ghanaians are worried about the sentence describing it as harsh whilst others think the punishment is in the right direction and will serve as deterrent to other celebrities doing same.
Meanwhile, Lawyer for actress Rosemond Brown has said he will appeal against the 90-day jail sentence against the client.
Mr Andrew Vortia after the actress was jailed on Friday, April 16, 2021 said, “For me, I want to go for an appeal.”
According to him, he has already requested for the full judgment to enable him file an appeal on Monday, April 19, 2021.
“If I have it by the close of the day, by 9 am on Monday [April 19] I will file an appeal,” he said whilst addressing journalists after the court sentence.
Rosemond Brown popularly known as Akuapem Poloo was jailed 90 days [3 Months] by an Accra Circuit Court over her nude photo with son.
Charged with publication of nude pictures with her seven-year-old son, Poloo earlier pleaded not guilty when she was first arraigned, but changed her plea last Wednesday to guilty.
Brown pleaded guilty to all three charges and was convicted on her own plea by the court presided over by Her Honour Christina Cann.
The Outspoken Actress faced three charges of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, a 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 human being.
The judge stated that such indecent acts are 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.
Her Honour Christina Cann also confirmed Akuapem Poloo’s pregnancy test as negative.
She also stated that, Poloo’s 90 days sentence on each count must run concurrently.
