Justice Herbert Lord offered Brandon Baptist, Hubert Baptist, John Grinage, Jr., and Sheldon Grinage, bail in the sum of $15,000 each plus three $5,000 sureties of the same. Their bail also came with several conditions including a curfew of 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., and an order to surrender all passports.
