JBlackmanCM: From victim's family' statement: "There is no joy in this outcome, however, as our daughter can never get back what she has lost."
JBlackmanCM: Labrie and Carney clasp hands as he's driven off in a blue truck.
JBlackmanCM: Prosecutors and family hug, exit courthouse. Press conference with their spokeswoman and attorneys up next.
JBlackmanCM: Families filing out of the courtroom now. Media held back.
JBlackmanCM: Bail remains the same, but with added curfew and check-in conditions.
JBlackmanCM: No pictures allowed now, but there are seven bailiffs near the defense table, all awaiting instruction.
JBlackmanCM: The girl's family has declined to comment directly, but will issue a statement through a spokeswoman.

JBlackmanCM: Sentencing date set: Oct. 29.

JBlackmanCM: Prosecutors now saying sex registry would be for life.
JBlackmanCM: Labrie, recall, does not come from a wealthy family. Mother a school teacher, father a landscaper. He had to fundraise to hire Carney.
JBlackmanCM: State requesting cash bail -- $50,000. Says he is a flight risk. Not even sure where he's been living.

JBlackmanCM: Labrie's mother looks inconsolable, asks to sit with him; told no. He reaches back and grabs her hand.
JBlackmanCM: Labrie is still out on $15K PR bail, but prosecutors could argue that be changed to cash. If he couldn't make it, he'd go to county jail.
JBlackmanCM: Labrie will have to register as a sex offender. Prosecutors not sure it'll be indefinitely. That's for the computer charge, a sex crime.
JBlackmanCM: Attorneys now entering judge's chamber. Labrie left seated at defense table. Removes, cleans his glasses. Shakes his head.
JBlackmanCM: Labrie's father still staring off, occasionally running his temple. He and Labrie's mother divorced when Labrie was two.
JBlackmanCM: Had to be guilty of statutory charge to be guilty of computer charge. That may explain why he teared after just hearing the computer verdict
JBlackmanCM: The computer charge involved Labrie's use of email/Facebook to lure the girl, then 15, to the attic to commit statutory rape.
JBlackmanCM: Correction: illegal computer use is a Class B felony. Max prison sentence: 3.5 to 7 years.
JBlackmanCM: All guilty charges are Class A misdemeanors, punishable by up to one year incarceration.
JBlackmanCM: To recap: jury found him guilty of statutory rape because of her age and inability to consent under New Hampshire law.
