Ghanaian actress and social media sensation, Rosemond Brown, popularly called Akuapem Poloo, has been granted bail by the Criminal Division of the High Court pending an appeal filed by her lawyer against her 90-day jail sentence.
Akuapem Poloo was granted the bail in the sum of GHS80,000 with two guarantors.
She will be reporting to the case investigator every two weeks and must deposit her passport to the registrar of the court.
Akuapem Poloo was handed a 90-day jail term for publishing pornographic content on social media and violating the dignity and integrity of her 7-year-old son after she pleaded guilty to all three charges raised against her.
Her lawyer, Andrew Vortia had made a alleviation plea to ask for a more tender punishment.
“The mitigating factors in her favour are greater than the aggravating factors. When you consider this offence, it is not rape. It is not murder. It is a misdemeanour in which she could have been dealt with lightly.”
“Social welfare should have been bought in. We are protecting the child. The mother is gone, so who takes care of the child? Absolutely nothing was done to that effect.” He added.
