CARRUM Downs teenager Caleb Jakobsson has been granted bail after fatally injuring a mother-of-two in a monkey-bike accident last month.
Justice Phillip Priest told the 18-year-old, who is due back in court in January: “It was a very close run thing that you got bail.”
Andrea Lehane, 34, of Carrum Downs, was knocked down outside the Carrum Downs shopping centre, Wednesday 23 September. Her life support system was later switched off as she suffered “unsurvivable brain damage”.
Police allege Jakobsson was driving a mini-motorbike in the car park when he struck Andrea Lehane.
Justice Priest imposed 14 bail conditions: Jakobsson will be subject to a 10pm-9am curfew, he has to report to police three times a week, and he cannot leave the state or the country.
The teenager has also been banned from contacting the others charged in the case, including by social media, and has been ordered to live with an unnamed relative.
