Owen Labrie Seeks Probation In NH Prep School Sex Assault.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The latest on the sentencing of a former student at an elite prep school who was convicted of sexually assaulting a younger classmate (all times local): A lawyer for a former student at an elite New Hampshire prep school convicted of sexual assault says the sexual contact between the senior and freshman was consensual. A teenaged girl said she felt “that I would be better off dead” after being sexually assaulted by a fellow prep school student in what prosecutors have described as a rampant sexual conquest among students.Owen Labrie didn’t just make one bad choice the night he invited a 15-year-old girl to a secluded room on his prep school campus to have sex with her, prosecutors said Thursday. Owen Labrie’s victim made the emotional statements in a video played before a New Hampshire courtroom Thursday where prosecutors asked that the 20-year-old be sentenced to 3 ½ to 7 years in prison. He had a plan for how he’d seduce and then trash the girls on his “Senior Salute” list, prosecutors said. “Feign intimacy … then stab them in the back … THROW EM IN THE DUMPSTER,” he wrote in a Facebook chat with a friend in February 2014, nearly four months before the sexual assault for which he was convicted. “i lie in bed with them …. and pretend like i’m in love.” Merrimack County prosecutors released their pre-sentencing memorandum Thursday on the St.

Labrie was originally charged with rape, accused of forcing himself on the girl in a nearly deserted school building in 2014, when he was 18 and about to graduate. Paul’s School graduate, hours before Judge Larry Smukler will determine Labrie’s punishment for his convictions on three misdemeanor counts of having sex with an underage girl, endangering children and a felony charge of using a computer to seduce the girl. Paul School’s campus, showed no emotion. “I was walking to a car and the entire boys’ hockey team, the boys’ varsity hockey team, stood up, stared and pointed at me as I walked alone down the street on campus,” she said. Once fulfilling that accomplishment, he was able to strike her name off a list of other female students he hoped to sleep with before he graduated that spring, Prosecutor Catherine Ruffle said.

In a videotaped statement played in court Thursday, the girl, now 17, said she was subjected to verbal and physical retaliation from other students after her return to St. Carney Jr., said Labrie already has been punished — shunned by his alma mater and losing a full scholarship to Harvard, dashing his dream to attend the college’s divinity school. That list, which Lebrie allegedly dubbed his “slut f–king bucket list,” was part of the school’s “senior salute” — a competition among graduating men to hook up with the most underclassmen before finishing school. While arguing the defense team’s claim that it was a “consensual” sexual encounter and even a “date,” Ruffle read from a number of obscene online messages she said Lebrie sent to friends.

Edmund Piper, a clinical psychologist who has been treating Labrie for 13 months, called him “remarkable” and “mature beyond his years intellectually and responsibility-wise.” A former female classmate called him “the kindest, most brilliant and most authentic friend I have,” adding that his conviction has not changed her opinion. Paul’s has long educated members of America’s elite, counting among its alumni Secretary of State John Kerry, Nobel laureates and Pulitzer Prize winners. The felony conviction mandates lifetime registration as a sex offender, although he can petition to be removed from the registry 15 years after he finishes his sentence. Labrie’s friends shared templates of messages used to seduce girls, passed down keys for secluded rooms on campus and worshipped an alumnus named “Slaymaker” for his sexual reputation, prosecutors said. He expressed disgust, outrage and heartbreak over what happened to his child while describing himself as “appalled” by Labrie’s lack of remorse or desire to make things better.

Instead, he said that Lebrie and his family devoted all their time, energy and money toward further victimizing his daughter with a witch hunt aimed at proving her to be a liar. “I am asking you, please, to give him a chance to proceed on with his life and become the productive, spiritual, decent hard-working man of service I know he is destined to be without the stigma of registration or incarceration.” Holland said her son, who was set to start at Harvard’s divinity college this year on full scholarship, became suicidal as he saw “so many years of dedication and hard work dissolve before him.”
