Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Brown popularly better known as Akuapem Poloo has been sentenced by an Accra Circuit Court to a 90 -Day imprisonment for posting a nude photo of herself with her seven-year-old son on the social media.
TheseTimes had earlier reported her conviction. Poolo had pleaded guilty to the charges of misdemeanour, domestic violence and publishing obscene material.
Poloo was much castigated when in June 2020, she shared a nude photo of herself with her son on her Instagram handle. In the picture, she was squatting naked while holding the hand of her son who was dressed in his underwear.
She had initially defended her action saying, “I was not completely naked. He did not see my organs because I covered myself with a cloth and applied sellotapes to the necessary parts. Besides, the picture was taken in my own house.” But she later made a public apology for the error.
Poloo who was arraigned on three counts of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity, and engaging in domestic violence, amongst others, first pleaded “not guilty” when she was first arraigned, but later changed her plea to “guilty” when she was re-arraigned on April 14.
