Gerald Stanley will be set free on $10,000 bail.
Stanley is the accused in the shooting death of 22 year old Colten Boushie, and made two appearances in court on Thursday. Both court sessions were met with rallies from Boushie supporters, who drummed and chanted “Justice for Colten” outside of the respective courthouses in North Battleford and Battleford.
After Stanley’s second appearance at the court of Queen’s Bench, the decision on whether or not to grant bail was held until this afternoon.
According to both CBC and the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, Stanley will be released upon payment of $10,000. He will not be allowed to range more than four miles from his farm in the Biggar, Saskatchewan area, and will be monitored electronically. He also must remain more than 20 miles from Red Pheasant First Nation, which is home to Boushie’s family.
The bail decision comes after a hearing yesterday afternoon, which was described as emotional. Evidence introduced at the hearing is subject to a publication ban.
