The actress, barely two hours after her conviction took to her Instagram page to thank her fans adding that she is a strong woman.

Before the judgment, the actress pleaded guilty to all three charges and was convicted on her own plea by the court presided over by Christina Cann. She was subsequently remanded into custody to undergo a pregnancy test before her sentencing.
