CONCORD - A judge has order Owen Labrie's lawyer off his appeals case.
Prosecutors asked the court to disqualify lawyer Jaye Rancourt as Labrie's lawyer in his appeal of his conviction of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate at St. Paul's School. He is appealing arguing ineffective counsel.
Prosecutors says Rancourt played an integral role in his defense and should be barred because Labrie is claiming ineffective counsel.
St. Paul's School graduate Owen Labrie was released on bail from the Merrimack County Department of Corrections May 19 where he was met by his father.
Under his bail conditions, Labrie must return to his home in Tunbridge, Vermont, and he must wear an electronic monitoring device.
The St. Paul's School graduate was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old freshman girl as part of a game of sexual conquest called "Senior Salute." He has appealed his conviction.
Labrie had been free after his trial last year but a Merrimack County Superior Court judge revoked his bail in March after he admitted violating curfew. He appealed to the state Supreme Court, which returned the matter to the trial court.
Labrie's attorney argued at a hearing on Monday that being locked up for two months has been "life-changing" for Labrie, and he'll comply with any additional conditions.
A prosecutor countered the only thing that's changed is Labrie doesn't like being in jail.
