St. Paul’s School graduate Owen Labrie is asking the state’s highest court to review a New Hampshire law that requires him to register as a lifetime sex offender.

Labrie was convicted in 2015 of having sex with a fifteen year-old classmate while he was a student at the Concord prep school. The law at issue involves the use of a computer to lure a minor for sex.

Labrie’s lawyers say the law was designed to target adults who prey on children, not two teenagers talking on social media.

Labries’s attorneys are asking the New Hampshire Supreme Court to clarify this matter.

Labrie was sentenced to a year in prison, and is currently free on bail at his mother's Vermont home.
