Former N.H. prep school student acquitted of felony rape

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A former senior at a New Hampshire preparatory school has been acquitted of felony rape but convicted of misdemeanor sex charges regarding a 15-year-old freshman.

A jury today found Owen Labrie not guilty of raping the girl in an academic building at St. Paul's School two days before he graduated last year. But jurors found him guilty of three misdemeanor sex assault charges. 

Labrie said he and the girl had consensual sexual contact but not intercourse when he was 18.
