A New Hampshire prep school graduate who was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate was led from court in handcuffs on Friday, after he admitted violating his bail agreement by missing curfew.
Owen Labrie was sentenced to a year in jail by a judge in Merrimack County Superior Court - after authorities became aware he had been breaking his curfew by visiting his girlfriend at Harvard for brunch - among other activities.
Labrie was caught out when he bumped into a journalist on the train and told her about his life after being convicted.
After finding him in violation of the curfew, Judge Larry Smukler scolded the 20-year-old before having him taken into custody.
'There have been credibility issues throughout this trial.
'You are unlikely to abide by any conditions. I don't relax conditions because you can't comply with them.'
'Since that's the way you're going to consider these conditions I am making the finding and I think I'll leave it at that. So be it. 'Judge Smukler said Friday just before Labrie was led out of court in cuffs.
