UPDATE: St. Paul's graduate Owen Labrie will have to register as a sex offender
CONCORD - Convicted of one felony offense, Owen Labrie, the St. Paul's School graduate found not guilty of felony rape charges, will still have to register as a sex offender for life.
Labrie was found guilty by a jury on Friday of using a computer to solicit the then-15-year-old freshman at the heart of the case, a class B felony. He also was found guilty of several misdemeanor charges.
The 19-year-old bowed his head and wept briefly as the decision was read inside the Merrimack County courthouse. He could have faced up to 60 years in prison for three aggravated felonious sex assault charges.
A jury of nine men and three women took eight hours to reach its verdict in the case against Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, a student who had attended the prestigious prep school on scholarship.
