Mr O’Toole, 47, denies the charge and was committed to stand trial at Leeds Crown Court.
His bail conditions are that he lives and sleeps at his address and does not contact prosecution witnesses. O’Toole was also banned from going within 100 yards of Sheepridge Grove in Sheepridge.
His first appearance at crown court will be on August 13.
