Social media reacts to St. Paul's rape case - is Owen Labrie guilty or not?

CONCORD – As jurors finish up their first day of deliberations, the public weighs in on whether or not the the 19-year-old former honors student at St. Paul’s is guilty.

Physical evidence, witness accounts and testimony from both Labrie and the now 16-year-old girl have painted two opposing views.

The prosecution has argued that Labrie calculated every part of the night he allegedly raped the then 15-year-old and boasted with friends afterwards.

The defense has maintained Labrie did not have sex with the girl and that they were both flirting with each other and exchanging messages prior to and immediately after they met on the roof of an academic building.

NH1 has been following the trial since the beginning, including live tweeting straight from the courthouse.

After closing arguments Thursday, NH1 posed the question via Twitter – is Owen Labrie guilty?

Here are some of the thoughts viewers shared via Twitter about the trial and more.

According to the Concord Monitor, Owen Labrie has been charged with three counts of felonious sexual assault, three misdemeanor counts of sexual assault, felony charge of using a computer service to lure and solicit the girl and endangering the welfare of a minor.

He could face up to 60 years in prison if he is found guilty.
