Prosecutors aim to have Owen Labrie's felony conviction stick

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Prosecutors will be making their case that a felony conviction should stand against a former student at an elite New Hampshire prep school convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old freshman days before he graduated.

A jury in August convicted 19-year-old Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont. His trial was full of lurid details that exposed a practice at St. Paul's School in Concord known as Senior Salute, in which graduating students try to have sex with younger classmates.

Labrie's lawyers are asking a judge to throw out the felony conviction for using a computer to arrange their encounter in May 2014. If the conviction stands, Labrie could be ordered to register as a sex offender for life.

Prosecutors must file their objections in writing Thursday. Sentencing is set for Oct. 29.
