    Judge Refuses to Shorten Owen Labrie's Sentence

    A judge has refused to shorten the jail term for a New Hampshire prep school graduate convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate in 2015, saying he has to report to jail for the remaining 10 months of his sentence the day after Christmas.

    A New Hampshire prep school graduate convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate has begun serving the remaining 10 months of his jail sentence.

    Twenty-three-year-old Owen Labrie reported to the Merrimack County jail on Wednesday morning, a little over a week after a judge refused to shorten his sentence.

    Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was convicted in 2015 of assaulting a freshman the previous year as part of a game of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School in Concord. He also was convicted of using a computer to lure an underage student for sex, requiring him to register as a sex offender.

    Labrie had been free pending appeals, other than the two months he served for curfew violations in 2016.

    In a statement, the attorney for the survivor's family said Labrie serving his jail sentence means he "will finally be held accountable for his crime.

    "To date, he has shown no remorse nor accepted any responsibility for his actions," the statement read. "We hope he never sexually assaults another person in the future."
