Judge revokes bail for Owen Labrie; former prep school graduate taken to jail

CONCORD - Merrimack County Judge Larry Smukler has revoked bail for Owen Labrie, the former St. Paul's School student convicted of sexually assaulting a freshman at the school.

Prosecutors had brought a motion to revoke Labrie's bail noting he'd been seen away from home after the curfew that was set as part of his bail conditions.

"What's troubling is that you took it upon yourself to construe, as was stated of your pleading, the spirit of the bail order and not the letter, and you made that decision yourself," Smukler addressed Labrie after both sides made their pleadings in the bail revocation hearing.

"It would not bode well for probation if I allowed you to make the decision about what you're going to, that if you feel you have a good reason because you're going to pursue an educational opportunity, well, that's more important that the bail conditions. It isn't." he said.

Labrie was led away from the courtroom in handcuffs.

NH1's Jenna Abate is at the courthouse now and wil provide more information as it comes available. Labrie's lawyer is expected to address the media shortly.
