Maid pleads for mercy as she asks family to forgive her.
Imprisoned maid, Jolly Tumuhiirwe, will be sentenced Wednesday.
This morning, the City Hall court was filled to capacity as Jolly was produced on torture of a child charges. It was not possible to charge her with attempted murder as of today because the parties accusing her were still compiling evidence.
When asked to take plea, Jolly said that she was guilty and also used the opportunity to apologise to Arnella's parents. The case was adjourned to 10.Dec.2014 when her sentence is expected. She was then remanded to Luzira prison until then. Sentencing guidelines for this charge call for up to 15 years-in-prison.

A lot has changed since the video went viral. Maids have been calling on radio and Tv stations expressing their dissatisfaction with their bosses, some maids who were suspected to be falling in the category of Jolly have since been fired. In the same period, there is an advert on telly calling out for maids who have been tortured to report the incidents.
