    The New Hampshire prep school graduate convicted in a high-profile sex assault case involving a fellow classmate has been released from jail after his bail was reinstated.

    Owen Labrie has until 5 p.m. Thursday to make his curfew at his home in Tunbridge, Vermont.

    A judge granted bail again earlier this week after Labrie admitted to violating his curfew while on bail waiting for his appeal, which led to him being jailed again.

    Conditions of his release including wearing a GPS monitoring bracelet that New Hampshire authorities will monitor.

    Prosecutors raised concerns Labrie may just violate his curfew again, but police say Labrie will be under a watchful eye.

    "He's not known as a random sex offender who's going to be perpetrating throughout our community," Orange County Sheriff Bill Bohnyak said in Vermont. "Vermont is small enough, same in New Hampshire, that if he violates, sooner or later, it will come out."

    His attorney says details of the release are still being finalized.

    Labrie was convicted last year of sexually assaulting a classmate at their elite boarding school.
