State fighting to keep Owen Labrie in NH jail while waiting for appeal
The legal wrangling over Owen Labrie's case continues.
The state is filing its response after the defense requested he be released from jail. The St. Paul's School graduate was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate had his bail revoked in August for repeated curfew violations.
"There is clear and convincing evidence that the defendant violated a condition of bail by traveling outside the parameters of his curfew at least eight times," the state said.
Labrie argued that the 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. curfew was stricter than others, however the state said the defense requested strict conditions as part of his release following the conviction.
The defense also argued the court did not consider all the conditions of bail that Labrie had met while rendering a decision.
The state argued, "the trial court explicitly stated it had considered all of the arguments."
The state urges the court to not overturn the decision to put him behind bars while waiting for the appeal of his felony conviction to be heard.
