NH files to revoke Owen Labrie's bail after Twitter messages point to broken curfew

CONCORD - The state has filed a motion to revoke the bail of Owen Labrie after he's been accused of violating its conditions.

According to the state, the former St. Paul's School student violated conditions of his release after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old prep school student.

Labrie was released on a $15,000 personal recognizance bail with the condition that he lives at his mother's home in Tunbridge, Vt., and that he comply with a curfew from 5 p.m. to 8 a.m.

The state says that a Twitter messages detailing a conversation on between Labrie and a journalist on or about Feb. 29 sparked an investigation after it was discovered he was on a train in Cambridge, Mass.

In court papers Monday, prosecutor Catherine Rufflesaid Labrie failed to comply with his curfew, travelling outside the parameters of it at least eight times.

The state has asked for an expedited hearing and has requested Labrie be detained while he appeals his conviction.

The date has yet to be set.

Labrie was arrested days after graduating from St. Paul's School, an elite prep school in Concord.

He was sentenced to five years' probation on misdemeanor sex assault charges and a felony conviction of using a computer to lure a 15-year-old girl for sex. He is appealing the conviction.
