A solicitor, acting as agent for McGirr James Hall &

Associates in Sydney said they needed two weeks to prepare a submission to the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Crown indicated it would need two weeks to reply.

The case was adjourned until February 10.

Sutton, who remains on bail, is believed to have been staying in the South Burnett town to watch the Queensland Open Schoolboy Rugby League carnival.
