A former high school guidance counselor was sentenced to 2 1/2 to five years in prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a 14-year-old student multiple times.
Kristie Torbrick pleaded guilty on Monday to four counts of felonious sexual assault in Rockingham County Superior Court. She admitted the sexual assault was over a course of months that began in late 2016 at Exeter High School in Exeter, New Hampshire.
The State requested Torbrick serve no less than five years in prison for her actions. However, Judge Andrew Schulman sentenced the suspect to at least 30 months followed by seven to 14 years of suspended prison time should she take sexual offender treatment.
"Kristie Torbrick betrayed her position of trust within the community as a guidance counselor by perpetrating horrible crimes against a young victim," Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway said.
