Rosamond Brown well known as Akuapem Poloo has again filed a notice of the petition to the Court of Appeal through her lawyers over her jail term
The actress is again challenging the court over the High Court dismissal of her appeal regarding her 90-day jail term for sharing her nud£ photo of herself and his son on social media.
Her lawyers came together to file the letter of notice for the appeal on Monday 6 December, 2021led by Andrew Kudzo vortia.
In the notice, “Please take note that the convict/appellant/appellant herein, 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”
Akuapem Poloo’s lawyers have also applied for bail for their client pending the determination of the case.
The Accra High Court on December 1, 2021, ordered the actress to go and serve her 90-day jail term at Nsawam medium-security prison after the court dismissed her initial appeal.
