Social media personality, Rosemond Brown popularly known as Akupem Poloo will return to prison to begin her 90-day jail term.

This was after the High Court in Accra dismissed an appeal filed by her lawyers which sought to challenge the 90-day jail term handed to her by the Accra Circuit Court on April 16 this year.

In a ruling today, the Criminal Division of the court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey upheld the Circuit court decision on grounds that the Circuit court’s decision was not manifestly excessive.

“This court will not interfere and the appeal is therefore dismissed,” Justice Aryee said.

The court ordered that in the absence of the convict, Akuapem Poloo’s child should be given to any competent person in the family to take care of.

Akuapem Poloo was found guilty of posting a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son on June 30, 2020, his birthday.

She pleaded guilty to all three charges and was convicted on her own plea by the court though she had initially pleaded not guilty.
