Lawyer to appeal Akuapem Poloo sentence today. 49



Lawyer of convicted actress Rosemond Alade Brown aka Akuapem Poloo is expected to file an application seeking to appeal against the custodial sentence of his client.

Lawyer Andrews Kudzo Vortia served notice of an appeal against the sentencing on Friday in interaction with Journalists after the ruling.

Akuapem Poloo is awaiting a Covid-19 test result to begin her 90-day jail term today, April, 19, 2021.

She took the test on Friday following the sentencing by the Accra Circuit court.

Akuapem Poloo who was convicted on her own plea after changing her not guilty plea to guilty was given a custodial sentence after a pregnancy test conducted on her came out negative.

The outspoken actress was slapped with 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 a human being.

The Circuit Court in Accra presided over by Her Honour Mrs. Christiana Cann sentenced Akuapem Poloo on all three charges to 90 days each but the sentence, she said will run concurrently, meaning she will serve three months.
