Social media personality, Rosemond Brown, is expected to be sentenced today after her conviction on charges of the publication of obscene material and domestic violence.
Known widely as Akuapem Poloo, Rosemond Brown was found guilty of posting a nude photo of herself and her seven-year-old son on his birthday back in 2020.
She has been in police custody and has undergone a pregnancy test since her conviction on Wednesday.
An Accra Circuit Court convicted the social media star after she pleaded guilty.
Rosemond Brown, also known as Akuapem Poloo, faces a possible fine of up to GHS 6,000 or a jail sentence not exceeding two years.
The complainant in the case is Bright Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana.
He petitioned the police after the incriminating photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).
Rosemond Brown has received some support from Ghanaians who have described her conviction as harsh.
Prominent Ghanaians in the entertainment industry like rapper Sarkodie have also voiced their support for Rosemond Brown.
Her troubles began on June 30, 2020, when she celebrated her son’s seventh birthday by posting the photo on her Instagram page, which went viral on social media.
The pictures attracted criticism and accusations that she was undermining the dignity of her seven-year-old son, among other things.
