The defendant’s lawyer applied for reasonable bail and told the court that his client is willing to submit to any conditions of the court.

The prosecution had no objection to bail.
Magistrate Lovell granted bail on the condition that the defendant reports to the Brickdam Police Station every Monday at 1pm. McDonald was then ordered to return to court on January 31.
