Owen Labrie, an 18-year-old graduate of St. Paul’s School in Concord, is accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate as part of a competition with his friends. He was also accepted to join the class of 2018 at Harvard University. But as of yesterday, he was no longer enrolled.

The Harvard Crimson confirmed with a faculty spokesperson that Labrie was no longer enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences. According to the report, his name had been removed from the Harvard College Facebook, which is a directory for enrolled students, weeks ago.

It remains unclear whether Labrie left the school voluntarily or if his enrollment was revoked, but, according to the Crimson report, the university does reserve the right to revoke enrollment on the grounds of “behavior that brings into question your honesty, maturity, or moral character.”

Labrie, a Tunbridge, Vermont resident, turned himself in to police on July 16 and was charged with three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, three misdemeanor counts of sexual assault, and a felony charge of using a computer to lure his alleged victim to meet him.

After turning himself in, Labrie was released on $15,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on September 15.
