Owen Labrie wants a new trial.
The St. Paul's prep school graduate was convicted of sexually assaulting an underage classmate after using Facebook to lure her into the situation.
In the motion, Labrie said his defense let him down because they didn't pay enough attention to the felony computer-related seduction charge, which he was ultimately found guilty. Labrie’s conviction on that charge resulted in the requirement that he become a registered sex offender.
He was also found guilty of misdemeanor charges of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Labrie said the defense team "objectively unreasonable" strategy for his felony charge and because of that, it was a "miscarriage of justice."
J.W. Carney represented Labrie during his trial.
His new lawyer is Jaye Rancourt.
The St. Paul's graduate began serving his one-year sentence after his bail was revoked last month.
