Bail revoked for prep school grad, who's taken into custody


CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Bail has been revoked for a graduate of an exclusive New England prep school who was convicted of sexually assaulting a younger student.

Twenty-year-old Owen Labrie was taken into custody Friday after a judge in Merrimack County Superior Court found that he violated conditions of his bail.

Labrie had been free on bail while he appealed his one-year jail sentence and the requirement that he register as a sex offender. Curfew was part of his bail requirement, but a prosecutor said he violated it at least eight times.

A lawyer for the 20-year-old Labrie acknowledged that his client "tried, admittedly, to fly under the radar on three occasions." He says Labrie was sorry.

Labrie was 18 when he was arrested days after graduating from St. Paul's School in New Hampshire.
