Bail for doctor facing three assault charges

Social Share

A GYNAECOLOGIST ACCUSED of indecently assaulting three women was released on bail when he appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Dr Wayne Welch,  of Mount Wilton,  St Thomas, was not required to plead to indecently assaulting  one woman on February 2; another on June 16  and a third on June 20, all in 2012.
There was no objection to bail but prosecutor Station Sergeant Keith Belle asked that bail  be granted with  certain conditions.
He asked that Welch be made to surrender  his passport; that  he be made to present himself at the police station nearest to him and that he have  nothing to do with  the complainants  during the “currency  of the matters”.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick confiscated Welch’s passport, ordered him to report to District “F” Station every Wednesday, and released him with a surety  of $15 000.
Welch, who was represented by Anthony Wiltshire, returns to court on November 4. (HLE)
