    Owen Labrie, right, listens to prosecutors before being sentenced in Merrimack County Superior Court, Oct. 29, 2015, in Concord, N.H. The graduate of the exclusive St. Paul’s School was sentenced to a year in jail for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old freshman girl.

    The lawyers for a New Hampshire prep school grad convicted of sexually assaulting his classmate have filed an appeal, court documents show.

    Twenty-year-old Owen Labrie was convicted in August of a misdemeanor sexual assault and a felony count of using a computer to lure a minor for a 2014 incident with a girl at St. Paul's School in Concord.

    He registered on the state's sex offender registery on Tuesday. His felony conviction will require him to register for life as a sex offender.

    Labrie, from Tunbridge, Vermont, was sentenced to a year in jail and can petition to be removed from the list 15 years after he finishes his sentence. He remains free pending an appeal.
