The Accra Circuit Court has found actress Rosemond Brown, also known as Akuapem Poloo, guilty of taking nude pictures with her son.
She was found guilty after posting a nude photo of herself and her son on Instagram to celebrate his seventh birthday.
She has been remanded in detention pending the results of a paternity test.
The actress pleaded guilty to all three counts in court on Wednesday, and the court presided over by Christina Cann found her guilty on her own plea.
The actress was accused of publishing indecent content, engaging in domestic violence, which is defined as behavior that jeopardizes another person’s privacy or reputation, and engaging in domestic violence, which is defined as conduct that diminishes or is likely to diminish another person’s dignity and value as a human being.
According to the prosecutor, Rosemond celebrated her son’s seventh birthday on June 30, 2020, by taking nude photos of her son, who was also half-naked.
She shared the photos on her Instagram profile, and they quickly went viral.
The photos drew criticism, with some claiming that the accused person’s actions were likely to diminish the integrity of her seven-year-old son, among others
On the picture, there was a caption that read: “I am naked in front of you because this is how naked I was giving birth to you, so in case you find me lying somewhere don’t pass by but see me as your mom who brought you to life.”
She appeared in custody on the same allegations on November 9, 2020.
However, after receiving numerous negative comments on the post, the actress apologized for her actions.
She further clarified what the act aimed to do, claiming that it was to encourage children to do more for mothers, regardless of how poor they [mothers] are.
“I was not completely naked, He did not see my organs because I covered myself with a cloth and applied sellotapes to the necessary parts. Besides the picture was taken in my own house,” She said
Rosemond was granted $100,000 bail with four sureties, two of which must be justified with $100,000 in landed lands, according to Christiana Cann, who presided over the hearing on Wednesday.
The property’s title deed shall be lodged in the court’s Registry pending the resolution of the case, according to the Court.
