CONCORD - It was an emotional day in the courtroom on Thursday as Owen Labrie was sentenced for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old schoolmate.
The St. Paul's graduate will spend one year in the house of corrections followed by probation, but the biggest impact for Labrie is that he will register as a sex offender for life.
“He will have to tell his future wife, 'You should know I’m a registered sex offender,'” said J.W. Carney, Labrie’s Attorney.
Carney painted a somber picture of Owens' life after serving time.
We heard emotional statements from the victim and her family Thursday in court.
“What he did to me made me feel like I didn’t belong on this planet," the victim told the court in a statement. " I’d be better off dead. I was completely alone at school dealing with this."
Family members were in tears as the sentencing was read.
Labrie was teary-eyed - if for only a moment. But the state attorneys are still asking, is it enough?
“This was a mission for him, a sexual conquest and a game,” said prosecution Catherine Ruffie.
So what's next for Labrie?
His legal team will file for an appeal, during that time Labrie will be free on bail.
The judge warned Labire not to do anything foolish while out on bail, and he must go under a psycho-sexual evaluation.
