Rosemond Alade Brown’s appeal appealing her 90-day prison term was dismissed by the High Court in Accra.
The ruling by the Accra High Court presided over by Justice Ruby Aryeetey means Akuapem Poloo will now serve her 90 days jail terms imposed on her by the Circuit Court.
According to the court, the convict’s son should be delivered to “any competent individual in the family to take care of him.”
The court, in ruling on the convict’s request to have the jail sentence overturned and replaced with a fine, stated that the 90-day sentence imposed on her was not disproportionate or punitive. Justice Ruby Aryeetey said the punishment imposed on Akwapem Poloo was to cause much harm to the convict which will then become a deterrent to herself and others.
To this end, the court said, the decision of the Circuit was right and the High Court will not interfere with it.
Akuapem Poloo is currently sobbing while the court has indicated, she should continue her jail terms from where she left off from Nsawam.
