A St. Paul's graduate convicted of using a computer to lure a 15-year-old classmate to have sex is objecting to the state's motion to revoke his bail.
State prosecutors have accused Owen Labrie of missing his court-appointed curfew.
Prosecutor Catherine Ruffle filed paperwork Monday saying that Labrie violated curfew at least eight times.
Labrie and his counsel argue that he only broke the morning curfew on Jan. 28 and Feb. 29 for education meetings, but that the rest of the time he obeyed the restrictions.
They say that the alleged Oct. 23 and Oct. 28 violations were before the sentencing date when the restrictions were put in place.
On Feb. 17 and 18, the objection says Labrie had been meeting with "civil legal counsel" for "various civil issues."
In all instances when Labrie allegedly had violations, the defense argues that he contacted Merrimack County Pre-trial Services for permission to be away from home outside of curfew hours.
A hearing has been scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. at the Merrimack County Superior Court.
Labrie has been living with his mother in Tunbridge, Vt., as he appeals his one-year jail sentence and the requirement that he register as a sex offender. He is supposed to be home between 5 p.m. and 8 a.m. each night.
