CONCORD — Former Saint Paul's student Owen Labrie - convicted of statutory rape in 2015 – was back in court on Wednesday with a new lawyer by his side.
The hearing was to set the date for Labrie's charge of ineffective counsel. Labrie claims his attorneys failed him in the trial that made national headlines.
"Even the best of attorneys make mistakes and I think that's what happened here, and we're confident moving forward that is won't be the last step in this case," said Defense Attorney Robin Melone.
Labrie is appealing his conviction on statutory rape and felony use of a computer. The former prep school student is out on bail - living in Vermont with family.
A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 21, 2017.
