St. Paul grad and convicted rapist Owen Labrie (below) has been re-booked and finally jailed, after telling a female reporter he'd repeatedly violated home-detention at his family's Vermont estate.
Labrie, now 20, stood trial in New Hampshire in 2015 on several charges of luring and raping an under-aged female student at his elite prep school during its time "honored" tradition of senior male students targeting freshman girls for exploitation.
Fellow participants of St. Paul's infamous 'Senior Salute' testified that Labrie was enthusiastically attempting to make himself the *winner* of 2014's contest, even bragging about the premeditated sexual assault he was later arrested for and convicted.
In an effort to appear younger than his child victim, Defendant Labrie showed up in court as a Harry Potter lookalike. But the silly disguise didn't work -- he was found guilty on multiple counts of statutory rape and one felony count of using a computer to entice a minor for the purposes of having unlawful relations with her.
Those convictions would have additionally required Owen Labrie to register as a sex offender for life, but at the time of his rearrest in March 2016 he was in the process of appealing and, supposedly, abiding by the strict terms of his bailed release.
But instead, Labrie informed a newswoman on a train headed for Boston in late February, he was "slowly reentering society" again and "dating" someone two states away.
Prosecutors in New Hampshire caught wind of his confession and, while investigating it, uncovered evidence that the convicted rapist had in fact already violated the conditions of home-arrest about a dozen times before then.
On the grounds that he'd clearly proven “unlikely to abide by any condition or combination of conditions of release,” they then successfully had Labrie's bond status revoked by a judge this month and Labrie was sent to jail for the original one-year sentence he was hoping soon to overturn.
