In an exclusive interview with Newsweek, Owen Labrie, the defendant in the infamous sexual assault case at the lauded St. Paul's school in New Hampshire, broke his silence about life after his conviction. In June 2014, Labrie, then 18, was accused of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old classmate at St. Paul's School in Concord, New Hampshire—a charge he continues to deny today. Labrie was also found guilty of Section 649-B of New Hampshire's criminal code, which makes it a felony "to seduce, solicit, lure, or entice a child or another person believed by the person to be a child" for sex or lewd behavior on the Internet.

As his legal team prepares to bring his case to New Hampshire's Supreme Court, 20-year-old Labrie opened up about his journey from scholarship superstar to unemployed young adult living with his mom.
