Scales of justice

A man accused of hitting a teenaged girl with his car while driving drunk in Conception Bay South has been granted bail on strict conditions.

Frederick Paul Lawlor was back in provincial court in St. John's today.

The 49-year-old is charged with impaired driving causing bodily harm, refusing the breathalyzer and leaving the scene of an accident.

Judge Pamela Goulding agreed to Lawlor's release after he posts a $40,000 surety, and has three other people post sureties on his behalf: one for $5,000, one for $1,500 and one for $500.

He is banned from consuming alcohol and drugs, is not allowed to drive and must sign in with the RNC twice a week. 

Lawlor is due back in court Feb. 28.
