CONCORD (AP) — A judge has upheld the felony conviction of a graduate of an elite New Hampshire prep school who was found guilty of luring a girl to a sexual encounter as part of a sordid game of conquest.
A jury in August convicted 19-year-old Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont. His trial exposed a practice among students at St. Paul's School known as Senior Salute, in which graduating students try to have sex with younger classmates.
A judge in Concord upheld his conviction on Tuesday.
Labrie's lawyers wanted the felony conviction for using a computer to arrange the encounter dismissed. With the conviction upheld, he faces lifetime registration as a sex offender when he is sentenced next week.
Prosecutors countered that lifetime registration was appropriate.
Owen Labrie is scheduled to appear in court October 29 for sentencing.
