CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A former New Hampshire prep school student convicted of sexually assaulting a teenage girl is back in court to argue his conviction resulted from ineffective counsel during trial.

Owen Labrie (lah-BREE’) graduated from St. Paul’s School in Concord (KAHN’-kard). The Tunbridge, Vermont, resident was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl as part of a game of sexual conquest called Senior Salute when he was 18. He was sentenced to a year in prison. He’s out on bail while he appeals.

WMUR-VT reports (https://bit.ly/2dwnjhW) Wednesday’s hearing started the process of figuring out if Labrie had ineffective counsel during trial. If he did, a new trial date will be set.

Labrie was accompanied by his parents and his new defense attorney, Robin Melone, of Nashua.
