a voice disguised in court. >> i felt like i was frozen. >> this is the first time you've come out and said publicly what happened. >> yes. >> why did you want to do that? >> well, it's been two years now since the whole ordeal, and i feel ready to what happened to me. i'm going to make sure that other girls, other boys, know that they can own it too and they don't have to be ashamed either. >> the story starts on the grounds of this beautiful campus in new hampshire. a school where her father, alex, had graduated and her older sister. it was just before graduation when she accepted a date with popular senior owen labrie. a date that she says went horribly wrong and ended with

7:34 am
raped. i was just trying to go smoothly and not cause any waves. >> on one hand he was convicted of misdemeanor sexual assault, which means the jury believed that a sexual assault took place. on the other hand, there was a more serious charge that he was not convicted of. how did you feel about the verdict in this case? >> well, they said that they didn't believeha knowingly. that frustrated me a lot. he definitely did do it knowingly. the fact that he was still able to pool the wool over a group of people's eyes bothered me a lot and just disgusted me in some way. >> what do you hope happens to him now? do you ever think about that? >> i don't. i hope he learns. i hope he gets help.
7:35 am
sort of process like this. if he doesn't learn, he'll do it to another woman. >> she was adamant about returning to st. paul school. what happened when you went back to school. >> everybody knew. none of my old friends that were boys would talk to me. they didn't even look me in the eyes. they were uncomfortable or what. i don't know. and nobody was talking about the issue in itself. they weren't trying to prevent it from happeni else. >> chessy eventually left st. paul's and they filed a civil suit against the school saying it failed to meet its most basic obligation to protect children entrusted to its care. we talked with chessy's family as well. the school obviously denies the allegation in the lawsuit. some will say, oh, a lawsuit. is the family trying to get money. what's the real motive here? why not just let it go?
7:36 am
we kneel an obligation that this not happen to any future kids at the school. >> you think the campus would say we need to talk about what's happened. we didn't see that happening. and if ever there was a family to work with, it would have been our family. we loved the school. my husband experience there. our oldest daughter had a great experience there. unfortunately it seems like the school's reputation became more important rather than supporting our daughter. >> st. paul says we catego categorically deny there ever existed at the school a culture of tradition of sexual assault. you have an idea of how you can take something terrible that
7:37 am
what are you hoping to accomplish? >> we have been talking a lot about a woman's bill of rights. i want other people's input. i want other people to feel empowered and just strong enough to be able to say i have the right to my body. i have the right to say no. and i wanted to bring this initiative that would be a hashtag i have the right too and have people contribute to it. there with you all along and a lot of people don't have that. i can only imagine how helpful that's been. >> somebody has got my back. somebody is going to believe me. somebody is going to help me. even when i get panic attacks and i lock myself in my closet because i don't want my little sister to see me like that. she comes into my room sometimes
7:38 am
and punching my legs trying to get myself calmed down, and she'll try to give me the biggest hug and say, chessy, you're okay. chessy, you're okay. and it just -- i can't imagine how scary it is for other people to have to do this alone and i don't want anybody else to be alone anymore. i don't. >> to find out more prout's new campaign for survivors and her hashtag i have the right too go to you'll find the full response from st. paul's school including a list of changes the school has made since this happened. she is a very determined young woman. >> she's in another state and another school and applying to college this fall. >> amazing interview. thank you very much. let's get a check of the weather now. dylan is in for al.
