Akuapem Poloo Sentence To 3months Imprisonment Over Publication of Obscene Materials

The Circuit Court sitting in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, has found an actress, Rosemond Alade Brown, guilty as charge over publication of obscene material and domestic violence.

The court sentence Rosemond Alade Brown, popularly known as Akuapem Poloo, to three months imprisonment.

In her allocutus plea, Poloo’s lawyer, Andy Vortia, had prayed for a more lenient sentence.

However, the court held that a harsh sentence must be passed to serve as a deterrent to others.

The actress was convicted on her own plea after she had pleaded “guilty” to three counts of publication of “obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence namely a conduct that in any way undermine another person’s privacy or integrity, and engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracted or was likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.”

Recall the actress had shared a nude picture of herself alongside her son, to mark his seventh birthday on her social media handles in June 2020.

She was virally condemned for the post but the Director of Child Rights International, Ghana, Bright Appiah, filed a petition seeking her prosecution.

However, Poloo had apologized over the post, saying the picture was originally meant to encourage people to appreciate their mothers.
