There was a huge debate about the matter and she quickly deleted the image from her Instagram page. However, the rise in public uproar against her made a group send the matter to court.
She pleaded not guilty.
However, she later pleaded guilty after the plaintiff submitted evidence. She herein pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 90 in prison. After the sentence, many Ghanaians have descended on the justice system for sending a mother to jail. They pleaded for her on social media.
But as lawyer Sampson Lardi places it; a judge has no power to reverse a sentence.
He (Sampson Lardi) took to his famous programme -Newsfile and asked
Akuapem Poloo; How are 90 Days Harsh?
According to Sampson, anybody who pleads guilty to an offence will obviously receive conviction and the court essentially deal with law and a judge discharge law.
He couldn’t understand why many Ghanaians wanted the case of Akuapem Poloo to change. Why? He quizzed.
He also asked if guilty women in prison go home to take care of their children. Although there might be exceptions when the woman in question is pregnant. In that case, she will have to wait, deliver and serve her sentence. However, when she commits another crime, she will be instructed to serve all terms for the two offences with no appeal.
Like Afia Schwarzeneggar, Ghanaians are very hypocrite. We screamed the court should deal with her and when it does, we turn around to attack the court. And we further cite some cases like Woyomi and Nam 1 as more important but no sentence for them. Sampson asked: have any of them pleaded GUILTY?
Only the president can remit Akuapem Poloo, that’s if he would -he added.
May she learn her lessons.
