Embattled Ghanaian actress, Akuapem Poloo, have been sentenced 90 days in prison today at the Accra High Court for taking nude photo with her minor son.

The court also revealed that the pregnancy test of the accused person is negative. She pleaded guilty to all three charges on Wednesday and was convicted on her own plea by the court though she had initially pleaded not guilty.

The judge, Christina Cann, bemoaned the spate of nudity on Ghanaian social media space. According to her, the punishment meted out to Rosemond Brown must serve as a deterrent to others.

The complainant in the case was Bright Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana.

He petitioned the police after the photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

She was handed her sentence today, Friday, April 16, 2021, by an Accra circuit court. The prosecution said Rosemund after her arrest in 2020 admitted posting the nude picture with her son but insisted she did so unintentionally.
