It can be recalled that Akuapem Poloo pleaded guilty to all three charges, was convicted on her own plea by the court and was sentenced to a 90-day-jail term by an Accra circuit court presided by Christiana Cann.
But her lawyer, Andrew Vortia, immediately appealed against the sentence, describing it as harsh.
