Harsh and High handed: Social Media reacts to Akuapem Poloo 90-day sentencing

Social Media has erupted with tons of reactions following the sentencing of actress and social media personality Rosemond Brown,  to 90 days in prison over nude pictures she posted with her son in June last year.

The judge handed down the sentence after pleas for a noncustodial sentence from the defense and prosecution who argued that the accused was a first time offender, had expressed remorse and was also the breadwinner of the family.
