Euclid murder suspect mistakenly released from jail without posting bond EUCLID, Ohio– The suspect in the murder of a Euclid man was mistakenly released from jail.

Labrie , who was accused of raping a St. Paul’s classmate, will serve 10 months on misdemeanor sexual - assault charges. Owen Labrie , the former student at St. Paul’s School in New Hampshire who was convicted of misdemeanor statutory rape in 2015, reported to jail on Wednesday to serve

Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was acquitted in 2015 of raping the female classmate at St. Paul’s School.

But he was found guilty of a felony computer charge and several misdemeanor counts of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. The computer law says no one shall knowingly use a computer online service ‘‘to seduce, solicit, lure, or entice a child’’ to commit sexual assault.

His release comes more than two weeks after the New Hampshire’s Supreme Court denied his request for a new trial.

In its 3-0 ruling, the court dismissed arguments that Labrie’s trial lawyers were ineffective for failing to mount a defense against the computer charge.

The lead trial lawyer, J.W. Carney Jr., is a well-known defense attorney whose clients included the late Boston gangster James ‘‘Whitey’’ Bulger.

After the trial, Carney unsuccessfully asked a judge to set aside the guilty verdict on the computer charge. It never occurred to him before the trial, he said, that it was an issue worth exploring.

Last year, the same court upheld his convictions on the computer charge. The court dismissed arguments by Labrie’s lawyers that prosecutors failed to prove intent in his use of the computer and that the law was meant to be used to target sexual predators and pedophiles combing the internet, not in cases like this.
