Popular actress Akuapem Poloo, also known as Rosemond Brown, will have to spend the next 3 months in jail.
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.

Akuapem Poloo had shared those photos on social media to celebrate the son's birthday in June 2020, and the photos went viral.
After serving a few days into her term, her lawyers appealed the judgement after calling it "too harsh" for a mother. The actress was subsequently granted N5.3m bail (GH¢80,000) pending the determination of the appeal.
The court has thus rubbished the appeal with the explanation that it found it without merit.
Rosemond Brown has thus been ordered to go and continue her 90-day imprisonment.
