Ghanaian actress Rosemond Alade Brown, widely known as Akuapem poloo has finished paying a fine of 1000 penalty units equivalent to GH¢ 12,000 to the Judicial Service of Ghana.
According to reports, the actress made payment of an amount of GH¢ 12, 000 today, 16th December 2021 as a replacement for her 90 days jail term.
Akuapem Poloo is expected to be released by the police from Nsawam prison and the payments was done by the actress’s lawyers controlled by Andrew Kudzo Vortia.
Recall Akuapem Poloo was sent into prison on Monday December 6 after her appeal was dismissed by High Court for publication of obscene photo involving her son.
The Court finally decided to turned her 90- days jail term into a fine which happened on Wednesday on December 15.
“Please take note that the convict/appellant/appellant herein,” the notice said, “being aggrieved by the judgement of the High Court Criminal Division (1)Accra, Her Ladyship Ruby Aryeetey dated 1 December 2021 dismissing the appellant appeal against the conviction and sentenced to 90 days imprisonment imposed on the appellant on each count to run concurrently by Her Honour Mrs Christiana Cann dated April 16, 2021, hereby appeals to the court of appeal on the grounds set out below and for the release stated hereunder.”
“That the learned judge erred in failing to appreciate that as a young first offender and a single parent, a noncustodial sentence of a fine instead of a custodial sentence of 90days imposed on the appellant by the trial court is appropriate in this case. That the custodial sentence of 90 days imposed on the appellant be set aside and in lieu, be substituted with a non-custodial sentence or a fine,” it stated.
