Prep School Grad Convicted of Rape Files Appeal

The lawyers for a New Hampshire prep school grad convicted of sexually assaulting his classmate have filed an appeal, court documents show.

Twenty-year-old Owen Labrie was convicted in August of a misdemeanor sexual assault and a felony count of using a computer to lure a minor for a 2014 incident with a girl at St. Paul's School in Concord.

He registered on the state's sex offender registery on Tuesday. His felony conviction will require him to register for life as a sex offender.

Labrie, from Tunbridge, Vermont, was sentenced to a year in jail and can petition to be removed from the list 15 years after he finishes his sentence. He remains free pending an appeal.
