The appeal filed by actress Akuapem Poloo born Rosemond Alade Brown challenging her 90 days sentence has been dismissed by the High Court in Accra presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey.
This means the actress will now have to serve her 90-day prison term imposed on her months back by a Circuit court.
The appeal filed was to ask the court to set aside the 90 days sentence and replace it with a fine but the court dismissing the appeal indicated that the custodial sentence wasn’t harsh and excessive.
The court while siding with the Circuit Court’s decision noted that the custodial sentence was to serve as a deterrent to others and Akuapem Poloo herself.
According to sources, the court also ordered that Poloo’s son be given to any competent person in the family to be taken care of.
The court also ordered that Akuapem Poloo continues her jail term from where she left off in Nsawam.
