Lawyer for jailed Ghanaian socialite, Akuapem Poloo has refuted criticisms that he contributed to the sentencing of his client.
The counsel, Andrew Vortia said had Akuapem Poloo, who is officially known as Rosemond Brown not pleaded guilty, her sentence would have been harsher.
He explained: “When we were in the case management conference stage, we evaluated all the evidence against her; the pictorial evidence and the witness statement. We realised that we don’t have a good case”.
He said harsher punishment would have been given her if she is found culpable, after about two or three months of trial proceedings.
The lawyer said with Miss Brown being a first-time offender pleading guilty to the charges was the best alternative.
As a reminder, Akuapem Poloo has been handed a 90 days jail sentence over naked pictures with her son.
