Nathaniel Kibby pleads guilty, sentenced to 45-90 years in prison


LACONIA - Nathaniel Kibby, 35, pleaded guilty to raping and kidnapping a North Conway teen and was sentenced to 45-90 years in prison Thursday evening.

Kibby had originally entered a "not guilty" plea, but as a result of pleading guilty to seven charges, the remaining charges against him will be nullified.

The victim, who was 14 years old at the time of the October 2013 kidnapping, provided an impact statement in which she forgave Kibby.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young described in detail the account of the victim's abduction and captivity.

NH1 News is keeping the victim's identity confidential.

Kibby said he was not interested in making comments or answering questions from the media.

NH1 will have more on the story tonight at 10 p.m. on WBIN-TV and online at NH1.com.
