Breaking Down The Verdict In Owen Labrie's Rape Trial

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The latest on the sentencing of a former student at an elite prep school who was convicted of sexually assaulting a younger classmate (all times local):

2:15 p.m.

The teenage victim of a prep school graduate convicted of sexual assault says she has lived in "almost constant" fear since that night.

The girl gave her statement Thursday via videotape in a New Hampshire courtroom where Owen Labrie is being sentenced. She was 15 at the time of the May 2014 assault. He was 18.

Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was convicted in August of misdemeanor sexual assault and a felony count of using the computer to lure the girl to the encounter.

The girl says the experience led her to feel she "didn't deserve to live" and now she lives with the stigma of being a sexual assault victim.

While she spoke, her mother sobbed into her father's shoulder.

Prosecutors are asking a judge to sentence a graduate of an elite New Hampshire prep school to 3 ½ to 7 years in prison for using a computer to lure a younger classmate to a nearly deserted school building where he sexually assaulted her.

Prosecutors said Thursday they also want 20-year-old Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, to complete a sex offender program.

Labrie was convicted in August of misdemeanor sexual assault plus the felony count of using the computer to lure the girl to the encounter. He was 18 at the time. She was 15.

His trial exposed a practice of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School known as Senior Salute in which graduating students try to have sex with underclassmen.

Labrie also faces life on the state's sexual offender registry.

Sentencing is underway for a graduate of an elite New Hampshire prep school who was convicted of sexually assaulting a younger classmate.

Owen Labrie walked into a packed and hushed Merrimack County Superior Court on Thursday afternoon. The parents of his victim entered the courtroom earlier. The victim wasn't with them.

Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was convicted in August of misdemeanor sexual assault plus a felony count of using a computer to lure the girl to a sexual encounter. He was 18 at the time. She was 15.

His trial exposed a practice of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School known as Senior Salute in which graduating students try to have sex with underclassmen.

Labrie faces up to 11 years in prison and life on the state's sexual offender registry.

12:20 p.m.

Prosecutors haven't said how much time a former New Hampshire prep school student should serve for sexually assaulting a younger classmate, but they want him evaluated by the sex offender program at the state prison, which would indicate a sentence of one year or more.

In a memorandum filed just before 20-year-old Owen Labrie was to be sentenced Thursday, prosecutors include numerous references to messages Labrie sent to classmates that they say illustrate his "callous disrespect for young women."

Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, faces up to 11 years in prison and life on the state's sexual offender registry. He was 18 at the time of the assault. The girl was 15.

Prosecutors reject Labrie's contention that he's been punished enough by Harvard's decision to rescind his admission and full scholarship.

A former student at an exclusive New Hampshire prep school who was convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate is set to learn his fate.

Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was convicted in August of misdemeanor sexual assault plus a felony count of using a computer to lure the girl to a sexual encounter. His trial exposed a practice of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School known as Senior Salute in which graduating students try to have sex with underclassmen.

Labrie was 18 then. Now 20, he faces up to 11 years in prison and a lifetime on the state's sexual offender registry when he's sentenced Thursday. The hearing begins at 1:30 p.m.

His lawyers want to keep him off the sex offender list, saying it's too harsh a penalty.
