Ghanaian actress, Rosemond Brown a.k.a Akuapem Poloo has been convicted over the publication of her Nude photos with her 7-year-old son.
The actress who had displayed her naked pictures with her son on social media on June 30, 2020, was arraigned on three count of publication of obscene materials, engaging in domestic violence, a conduct that in any way undermines another person’s privacy or integrity and engaging in domestic violence namely conduct that in any way detracts or is likely to detract from another person’s dignity and worth as a human being.
The Ghanaian actress real name Rosemond Alade Brown
, had faced backlash in june last year after she shared a nude photo where she posed with her son to celebrate his 7th birthday.
In the picture posted to her Instagram page, the actress was completely naked while holding her son who is standing and focusing his eyes on his mom’s body.
But after heavy criticism, Akuapem Poloo took down the racy image from her page and apologized.
She explained that it wasn’t done out of any bad intention, but to encourage people to appreciate their mothers.
But on Wednesday April 14, 2021, the court found her guilty of committing domestic violence against her son who she undermined his dignity.
Akuapem had pleaded “not guilty” when she was first arraigned but later changed her plea to “guilty” when re-arraigned on Wednesday.
She was then convicted by Her Honour, Christiana Cann of the Accra Circuit Court on her own plea.
The court has deferred her sentencing to Friday, April 16 for her to undergo a pregnancy test in compliance with the law regarding a woman who has been found guilty in court.
According to reports from Ghana, the actress faces up to three years in prison, which is the maximum sentence for her offense.
The court can as well caution or fine her for the offense.
But some reports say it’s possible for the court to put her in jail for even one day.
She has however been remanded into custody
for the prosecution to take her to any Government hospital to conduct the pregnancy test
However since the court has asked her to undergo pregnancy test for any public hospital to establish whether she is pregnant or not, chances are that they are exploring the option of prison sentence.
The reason for the pregnancy test is that under the law, a pregnant woman cannot be imprisoned.
So if she is found to be pregnant the court will decide what to do, either to defer the judgement or give her more lighter sentence
