    Judge Refuses to Shorten Owen Labrie's Sentence

    A New Hampshire prep school graduate convicted of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate has begun serving the remaining 10 months of his jail sentence.

    Twenty-three-year-old Owen Labrie reported to the Merrimack County jail on Wednesday morning, a little over a week after a judge refused to shorten his sentence.

    Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, was convicted in 2015 of assaulting a freshman the previous year as part of a game of sexual conquest at St. Paul's School in Concord. He also was convicted of using a computer to lure an underage student for sex, requiring him to register as a sex offender.

    Labrie had been free pending appeals, other than the two months he served for curfew violations in 2016.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    In a statement, the attorney for the survivor's family said Labrie serving his jail sentence means he "will finally be held accountable for his crime.

    "To date, he has shown no remorse nor accepted any responsibility for his actions," the statement read. "We hope he never sexually assaults another person in the future."
