Lawyer and professor, Stephen Kwaku Asare, known as Kwaku Azar, has said that Rosemond Brown aka Akuapem Poloo ought to change her guilty plea to not guilty so that prosecutors can prove their case against her.
In a faceboook post, he said that changing her guilty plea would put the burden on the prosecutors to prove that she indeed committed the offenses against her and test the constitutionality of the charges that had been preferred against her. “Akuapem Poloo should go to trial. She must recant her guilty plea and put the prosecutors to their burden, including testing the constitutionality of some of the charges she faces,” he wrote on social media.
Meanwhile, there is social media agitation for Akuapem Poloo not to be given a custodial sentence so that she can continue to cater for her seven-year-old son as a single mother.
Many have pleaded with the state to be lenient and not commit her to jail given her circumstances and her show of remorse.
