Jurors reached a verdict Friday in a rape trial that pitted the credibility of a former student of an elite New Hampshire prep school against his accuser.

Owen Labrie, now 19, faces nine criminal counts in the alleged rape of a freshman girl in May 2014 at their boarding academy, the prestigious St. Paul’s School in Concord.

The two-week trial has cast a harsh light on the school, whose alumni include Secretary of State John Kerry, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, a Kennedy and three Vanderbilts.
