Akuapem Poloo likely to go jail

“If a judge asked for you to be remanded to be sentence later it means only one thing, it means it is possible the judge want to sentence you to imprisonment that is why she was asked to be remanded and conduct a pregnancy test because If you listen to what they are saying she was to be remanded to undergo a test to ascertain if she is pregnant”.

“You know in our laws, a pregnant woman is not to be imprison just like that so if she says you should be remand and appear later for your sentence what I understand is that the judge had made up the mind to sentence her to imprisonment,” he said.
