The lawyers of Rosemond Brown aka Akuapem Poloo have filed an appeal against her conviction at the Appeals Court.
They are asking for the court to put her 90-day jail sentence on hold as well as to reduce her sentence which they say is unneccesarily harsh.
The appeal was filed today, Monday April 19th 2021.
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.”
