Poloo, who was handed a 90-day jail term for publishing obscene material and violating the dignity and integrity of her 7-year-old son in a nude photo she shared on social media was granted bail in the sum of GHS80,000 with two sureties on Wednesday morning.

Her lawyer, Andrew Vortia has asked for a more lenient punishment for the convict maintaining the custodial sentence handed out by the Accra Circuit Court was harsh.

He said ‘the mitigating factors in her favour are greater than the aggravating factors. When you consider this offence, it is not rape. It is not murder. It is a misdemeanour in which she could have been dealt with lightly’.
