Popular actress and lawyer Sandra Ankobiah has also shared her reactions to the sentence of Akuapem Poloo for posting a nude photo.

Poloo has been given 90-days sentence by the trial court presided over by Her Honour Christina Cann on April 16, 2021.

The pronouncement of the sentence follows her own guilty plea entered at the trial.

Sandra Ankobiah, sharing her own views on the judgement said that, it is necessary to review sentencing laws in the country.

“We really need sentencing reforms in the country. Are we making enough use of non-custodial sentencing in this country?

For the avoidance of doubt, she was tried and convicted by a court of competent jurisdiction. I’m only asking questions about sentencing reforms. I guess this is about setting precedent.

It will be interesting to see how the posting of “nudity” on social media will be viewed going forward.

I need to read the full judgement. The non-custodial Bill is ready, but like most Bills, it will take ages to be passed into Law”, she posted.
