CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A teenage girl who accused a senior at an elite New Hampshire prep school of raping her last year says she felt “frozen” when he became aggressive.
The accuser told jurors Wednesday that 19-year-old Owen Labrie, of Tunbridge, Vermont, bit her breast and tried to pull her underwear off. She was a 15-year-old freshman at the time.
Prosecutors say the rape occurred as part of a tradition at St. Paul’s School called “Senior Salute” in which seniors try to have sex with underclassmen.
Labrie has pleaded not guilty to several felony charges and maintains the two had consensual sexual contact but did not have intercourse.
On the witness stand, the girl said she was in pain but said nothing. She said she had never been in a situation like that.
