Bobrisky appeals against sentence

Convicted cross dresser, Okuneye Idris Olanrewaju a.k.a. Bobrisky, has filed a notice of appeal against his conviction for naira abuse by a Federal High Court in Lagos.


The convicted cross dresser in his appeal, urged the appellate court to set aside the six months imprisonment sentence imposed on him.

In the appeal, filed by his lawyer,  before the court by Bimbo Kusanu, Bobrisky argues  that the  “learned trial Judge erred in law and in facts by his imposition of the maximum sentence of 6 months imprisonment terms against the appellant without option of fine contrary to the provisions of Section 416(2) d of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act of 2015 (“ADCJA”) that prescribed the mandatory guidelines on the trial Court on imposition of sentencing after criminal conviction of a first time offender as the appellant”.

The appeal is therefore seeking an “order setting aside the 6 months maximum imprisonment sentence imposed on the Appellant and in its place imposition of fine in the sum of N50,000 (Fifty Thousand Naira) on each of the counts against the appellant”.
