Ghanaian actress and socialite, Akuapem Poloo, has been jailed for 90 days following some charges brought against her.
The judgement was passed in April this year after she shared obscene photos with her seven-year-old son on social media.
Her lawyers filed for an appeal for the sentence to be reconsidered because it was “too harsh”.
During all that, some celebrities, both Ghanaian and Nigerians, jumped to Poloo’s defense and called for her to be freed.
However, it seems these celebs are going to be disappointed now that their pleas have fallen on deaf ears and Rosemond Brown has been sentenced to 90-days in prison.

Court directs Akuapem Poloo to continue jail term
The Criminal Court 1 Division of the High Court on December 1, 2021, threw out an appeal filed by lawyers of the actress and socialite.
This followed the 90-day jail term handed to her by an Accra Circuit Court for publishing obscene material and violating the dignity and integrity of her seven-year-old son.
She has been directed to go back to continue her 90-day jail term.
