Filmmaker Socrates Sarfo has called on the Attorney General’s office and lawmakers in the country to review punishments given to celebrities or public figures who commit menial crimes.

According to the ‘Hot Fork’ movie-maker, celebrities or public figures who are jailed for smoking marijuana could be influenced negatively by other hardened criminals they meet in prison.

“Sometimes certain crimes do not make you dangerous to society. If someone uses narcotics like marijuana, should that person be put in a confined area in which the environment or the people in there can motivate (sic) him or her negatively?

Don’t we know that sometimes we make society create negative human beings into the system?” Mr Sarfo quizzed on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review.

He stated that it was about time the courts considered sentencing certain individuals –depending on their crimes- to doing community service which in turn would benefit society directly.

“Psychology teaches us that show me your friend and let me show you your character. You can spend just a day with a person and he or she will succeed in changing your behaviour or your perception on something. I’m taking it through this medium to the Attorney or whoever is listening that we beg, they should take these things into consideration.

Sometimes depending on the crime or offence of the individual, he or she should be made to do community service like cleaning gutters or something. In other countries we see these things,” he said.

Currently several celebrities like rapper Kwaw Kese and ace broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah popularly known as KKD, among others, have found themselves in the firm grip of the law.
