    New Hampshire's highest court heard the second appeal from Owen Labrie, the former St. Paul's School student, found guilty of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate. (Published Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018)

    A lawyer for a New Hampshire prep school graduate convicted in 2015 of sexually assaulting a classmate is arguing that his conviction for using a computer to lure the girl for sex should be tossed out because prosecutors failed to prove that was his intention.

    The New Hampshire Supreme Court heard oral arguments Thursday on Owen Labrie's appeal of his conviction after a lower court judge denied his request for a new trial.

    The 22-year-old Tunbridge, Vermont, man was acquitted of raping a 15-year-old classmate in 2014 as part of a game of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School in Concord. He was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault and child endangerment, as well as the computer charge, a felony requiring him to register as a sex offender.

    Prosecutors told the court Labrie's intentions were clear.
