The following statement was released by the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence today after the Court's Revocation of Owen Labrie's bail
Statement from NHCADSV Executive Director Lyn M. Schollett, J.D.:
“On behalf of the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, we are pleased with the court’s decision to revoke Owen Labrie’s bail and enforce his yearlong incarceration in the House of Corrections. Owen Labrie’s knowing and purposeful disregard for the court’s order makes it clear that he continues to believe the law does not apply to him.
While the court’s decision today does not change what the victim and her family have had to endure, it does ensure that Mr. Labrie will be held accountable, which may bring a small measure of peace to victims of sexual assault.
I would like to remind all survivors, and those supporting survivors, that help is available any time of day throughout New Hampshire. Please call the statewide sexual assault hotline at 1-800-277-5570 or contact your local crisis center for support.”
