Owen Labrie, the former New Hampshire prep school student convicted on felony charges that stemmed from a rape allegation, is headed back to court Wednesday as he continues to fight for a new trial.

The 23-year-old Labrie will reportedly argue that his legal team was ineffective in defending him against “certain uses of computer services prohibited,” of which he was found guilty in August 2015.

It was Labrie’s only felony conviction (he was found guilty of four misdemeanors, including sexual assault), but it came with a lifetime on the sex offender registry.

Labrie was 18 and a student at the prestigious St. Paul’s School in Concord, N.H. in May 2014 when he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old freshman girl as part of an alleged school ritual in which seniors compete to sleep with the most underclassmen.
