Its Too Harsh - Akuapem Poloo's Lawyer Files For Appeal In Court

Few days into the brouhaha surrounding her 3 months jail term to be served in Capecoast inside Ankaful Prisons, lawyer to Rosemond Brown [Akuapem Poloo] has filed a petition against the sentencing. 

He believes the sentence handed to her client is too harsh even after showing a sign of remorse and regret. 

In the notice of appeal at the High Court, lawyer Andrews Kudzo Vortia said:

“…That the ninety (90) days sentence is so short that if the applicant is not admitted to bail immediately by the time the appeal is heard, she would have finished serving the sentence.

“That the Convict/Appellant pleaded guilty simpliciter and was convicted on her own plea and on all counts and sentenced to ninety (90) days IHL all counts to run concurrently.

“That I am advised by Counsel and verily believe so to be true that there has been a grave miscarriage of justice and that the trial judge erred in considering only aggravating factor in arriving at her decision.

“…We verily believe that the following exceptional circumstances existed in this case which the trial court ought to have duly considered.”
