She was convicted on charges of publication of obscene material and domestic violence.

She pleaded guilty to all three charges on Wednesday and was convicted on her own plea by the court though she had initially pleaded not guilty.

The judge, Christina Cann, bemoaned the spate of nudity on Ghanaian social media space.

According to her, the punishment meted out to Rosemond Brown must serve as a deterrent to others.

The complainant in the case was Bright Appiah, who is the Director of Child Rights International Ghana.

He petitioned the police after the photo went viral on social media, and the matter was referred to the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU).

The prosecution said Rosemond after her arrest in 2020 admitted posting the nude picture with her son but insisted she did so unintentionally.

A write-up accompanying the picture 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.”

The prosecution held that Rosemond deliberately posted the pictures on social media.
