Akuapem Poloo's lawyer now says she's guilty as court sets April 14 for trial

A Circuit Court in Accra has fixed April 14 2021 to commence the trial of Rosemond Alade Brown aka Akuapem Poloo.

Akuapem Poloo and her son Chief

The trial stems out of the charges the Ghanaian actress has been facing for sharing a naked photo she took in the presence of her son and shared on social media to mark his birthday.

The date of the trial has been announced today after Akuapem with her lawyer, Mr Andy Vortia, appeared before the court for a case management conference and he prayed for a long adjournment with the reason that his client would be travelling to Nigeria for movie production.

Mr Vortia explained that Akuapem Poloo has already signed a contract for the production which demands her presence in Nigeria. When the court demanded the contract, Rosemond showed the court a copy of the contract on her phone.

However, the court noted that the contract was not signed but she explained that she left the signed copy at home. The actress' lawyer also informed the court that his client would also like to change her plea of not guilty to guilty.

The "Side Chick Gang" actress has been charged with publication of obscene material, and two counts of engaging in domestic violence but she denied the charges and is on a GH¢100,000 bail.

Police Chief Inspector Agartha Asantewaa, the prosecutor, told the Court that they were comfortable with the new date.
