Andrews appeared before Acting Chief Magistrate Patricia Arana, where the court prosecutor objected to bail due to the serious nature of the offense, the prevalence of alleged sexual offences and the possibility of inteference with the complainant by the accused if granted bail. Andrews claimed to be a law-abiding citizen who does not interfere with anybody, but that did not spare him from being remanded until September 30.
