Akuapem Poloo Could Be Jailed For 3 Years : Lawyer

Published

on

According to a private legal practitioner, Bernard Owiredu Donkor, Akuapem Poloo could be facing up to 3 years in prison.

The lawyer explains Poloo’s offense is classified as a misdemeanor and that if her lawyers are able to build a strong case, her sentence could reduce. He said this while speaking to Citi FM.

“The offense she was charged with is a misdemeanor, and with a misdemeanor, you could be fined, you could be cautioned, and you could go a for a custodial sentence.

But when a judge directs that you take a pregnancy test as they do for female convicts, it means that we are in for a custodial sentence because the idea is that you don’t put a pregnant woman in jail.

Counsel is supposed to make a submission on behalf of the convict which we call a plea of litigation for the court to avert its mind to certain circumstances of the convicted person…

If the judge finds that the plea for mitigation is something that she could consider, it could come in to mitigate the sentence.

For misdemeanors, it is between caution and a maximum of 3 years. Looking at the circumstances we have right now, I wouldn’t be surprised if she is given a custodial sentence, and it could be one day to three years,” the lawyer said.

To newcomers on the site who might have the interest to know the genesis of the Akuapem Poloo story, you have here the background information.

Background.

On June 30, 2020, Rosemond Brown aka Akuapem Poloo celebrated her son’s seventh birthday and took her nude pictures together with her son, who was also half-naked, and posted the same on her Instagram page, which went viral on social media.

The pictures attracted comments which accused her of undermining the dignity of her seven-year-old son among others
.
Mr Bright K. Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana, petitioned the Director-General of CID, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

Rosemond, the prosecution said, was arrested and in her caution statement, admitted posting the nude picture with her son unintentionally.

The prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the pictures on social media.

She was convicted by the Accra Circuit Court on Wednesday 14th April 2021 after she pleaded guilty in court for posting indecent photos of herself and her seven-year-old son on social media.

The court subsequently ordered her to undergo a pregnancy test and suspended her sentencing to Friday, April 16, 2021.

“We Know Your Story, You Stole AC From Zylofon Office For Your Girlfriend” : Wisa Greid Goes Hard At Arnold

Published

on

Wisa Greid, Ghanaian singer is trying to resurrect the dead scuffle that ensued between Shtata Wale and Arnold Asamoah Baidoo on UTV last weekend.

On the show, Shatta Wale vented his spleen on Arnold for describing him as “confused and inconsistent”. The SM boss also described Arnold’s clothes as cheap by stating that the shoe he wore for the show was priced at GH¢2.50P.

Moments thereafter on the show, the two feuding parties smoked the peace pipe and apologized to each other for their misdemeanour.

Well, we thought all was done and good only for Wisa Greid to wake up this morning and share a cringy post on Facebook alleging that Arnold deserves all the disrespect because he stole an Air Conditioner from the Zylofon Media office for his girlfriend.

What is the motivation behind Wisa Greid’s post?
Well, according to him “that boy” (Arnold) does not have the moral right to disrespect “our international artiste” because his story stinks.

According to the “Ekikime” hitmaker, Arnold’s case, where he stole the AC allegedly for his girlfriend, is pending at the police thus he should be thinking about resolving such an image-denting issue than going about disrespecting Shatta Wale, an international artiste. Lol!

So that boy with 2.50ghc shoe dey on tv dey talk say Wanna International artist be confused and inconsistent.. He forget say we know en story ehn.. the AC wey he steal from Zylofon to go give en girlfriend wey dem catch am nu, the case still dey the police station oo .. yooo loll.

However, Wisa Greid’s post actually incurred the wrath of Ghanaians who could not believe how a kettle could call a pot black.

“Was it not the same Wisa Greid who brought out his small pen!s live on stage? Ahhh, man think about yourself,” that was one of the comments a fan made under his post.

Others rain insults and cast aspersions at Wisa Greid for trying to ride on Arnold-Shatta beef to buy some social media attention for himself.
