CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Police say a new graduate of a prestigious New Hampshire high school sexually assaulted a freshman as part of a student tradition in which seniors try to have sex with younger students.
A police affidavit obtained by the Concord Monitor alleges 18-year-old Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, sexually assaulted a 15-year-old on campus two days before he graduated from St. Paul’s School.
Police say Labrie denies having sex with the girl. Results are still pending from a state lab, but the affidavit says a nurse reported evidence of intercourse.
Labrie is set for arraignment Sept. 15 on three felony counts of sexual assault and one count of using a computer to lure the girl. A message seeking comment was left Saturday at a listed phone number for Labrie’s family.
