Convicted of “domestic violence that undermines another person’s privacy or could harm someone’s dignity and self-worth”, Poloo can be seen in the photo with her modesty covered by her hair. Her son was seen wearing trunks in the photo, which a judge presiding over the case in the capital Accra compared to child abuse, in the light of rising “obscene materials” in Ghana.
The judge explained: “The court is bothered with posting nu**de photos on social media. Did she ask for the permission of the child before posting the said picture? Did she respect the child’s right? No she did not. There is no doubt that apart from the canker of rape, defilement, physical assault, the publication of obscene materials is on the increase.” The judge presiding over her case is considering the fact she is a single parent and her apparent remorse. She however added: “A harsh sentence will serve as a deterrent.”

Meanwhile, counsel for the social media sensation, last Friday said his client will appeal against the 90 days sentence.
Speaking to journalists in Accra after court proceedings, Mr Vortia described the sentence as “harsh”. He said the court should have considered the mitigating factors that he had advanced; including the fact that Brown was a first time offender and a single mother.
