5:00 pm
in short, we all need to do better and we can do better on behalf of victims. so for all of those survivors who may have never told anyone what happened to them, we would like to remind you that help is available any hour of any day. here in new hampshire by calling the state sexual assault hotline 1-800-277-5570 or by contacting your local crisis center. thank. josh: you are watching news 9 at 5:00. we've been in continuing coverage of the sentencing of owen labrie. he just learned that his convictionings will put him in jail for one year plus probation. he has been released on bail pending an appeal. but this is a case that has raised serious questions about teen-age culture with both side in part blaming the private school where labrie and the
5:01 pm
victim were both enrolled. jean: we'll have live team coverage, but first we're joined by legal analyst david are are ruoff. one year in jail, but also he's been released on bail pending his appeal. so tonight owen pla bree are not be behind bars. >> that's correct. he won't have to serve any portion of his sentence until his appeal has run its entire course and that can take up to 18 months. jean: so this process could go on and on? >> yes. they'll file a notice after peel within the next 30 days and then the supreme court will issue a scheduling other from there, and months. josh: one of the big components of this is the fact that he needs to register as a sex offender, and some charge that amountings to a life sentence. does he have any resource now with this sentence? >> with respect to the sex offender registration, he'll be what they call a tier two
5:02 pm
offender. so 15 years after completion of the sentence for that specific offense, he can ask the judge for permission to get off the list. whether that will ever happen 15 or 16 years from now, we don't know. jean: what do you make of of the one year in the county jail sentence? the new hampshire coalition against domestic and sexual violence called it a small consolation in their press conference just a moment ago. >> i understand. i'm not surprised by the sentence. i would have been surprised if he had received a state prison sentence because of the sentenced. the judge was very careful about parsing out that he wasn't sentencing him for convictions upon which he was acquitted. so, but 12 months is a long time, and it's still fairly close to what the state was asking for. they were just asking for it to be a little more time but at the state prison, with time off if he was able to complete that sex
5:03 pm
offender treatment program. josh: if you're the defense and you're putting together this aappeal, what kind of different routes may they take that would differ from the one that led to a conviction and a year behind bars? >> well, everything is on the table with respect to the ateal. they'll be able to take a look at all the motions that are filed, all the rulings the judge made and reargue those again on appeal. mr. labrie will also probably have the chance to ask another lawyer to review to see whether or not his defense attorney, mr. carney, provided adequate representation of him in the defense of this case. so there are all sorts of things that are still available to him over the next 18 months. jean: we heard during the victim impact statements, members of the victim's family saying make a statement, send a message about what happened here. does the judge factor that into the sentencing? >> absolutely. we call that deterrence, specific and general deterrence. that's one of of the things i
5:04 pm
concerned about was sending a message to other young men that are out there that are similar to mr. labrie. and it's a strong statement that if you're convicted of these types crimes that you will face the consequences and go to jail. regardless of what you already lost in terms of going to harvard and, you know, the stigma that attaches to these convictions. josh: the timeline associated with this, this has been a high profile case, gotten national media attention. i would imagine that both the prosecution and the defense will be very methodical and take their time to make sure that no mistakes are made and that this whole thing doesn't blow up in either of their faces, especially the prosecution. through an apeople. >> absolutely. keep in mind the attorney general's office will handle the appeal for the state. they handle all the appeals, so the case will get transferred to them for hand l.
5:05 pm
whether mr. darn carney stays on as the attorney for the appeal remains to be seen. josh: a year, year and a half, two years? >> 18 months to two years. jean: owen labrie is being released on bail pending his appeal. if he were to serve that one year in the house of corrections, would it be a full year? >> no, it wouldn't be. for house of corrections sentences they actually get a third of the time off if they behave themselves, so it would be eight months behind the wall. jean: from your experience and to our viewers' benefit, what's the difference between serving time in the state prison and ebb serving time at the house of corrections? >> both facilities are very, very different. state prison is where a lot of hard core criminals are, a l. repeat offenders, a lot of people that are there for very serious felonies. the county correctional facilities tend to be, house
5:06 pm
small time offenders, and people that are awaiting trial. josh: quickly, one-year sentence for the conviction, is this considered a harsh sentence or is this pretty much the line with what you would expect? >> i think it's in line with what i would expect. i think it is something that a lot of people that have followed the case are not surprised. jean: we're joined on the set by legal analyst david ruoff. we within to listen to some emotional sound we heard in the krom within the past hour, hour and a half. >> unfortunately the owen labrie my daughter met in 2014 was not the bespeckled pale tweed jacket wearing to expelt divinity student we see in the court. but the vulgar sex obsessed deny until you die entitlessed slay maker who used every trick in
5:07 pm
conquest to his impressive list and extensive collection. >> st. paul's school does a lot of wonderful things. but it fails the students in one glaring respect. it's been called the culture of st. paul's, it's been called the tradition of st. paul's. if any parent did what st. paul's school did in ken urging senior boys to hook up with freshmen girls, that parent would be justifiably excoriated by others, saying are you crazy, have you lost your mind? why would you ever say that to your children? jean: we've learned that labrie has been sentenced to one year in county jail followed by probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
5:08 pm

5:16 pm
>> the trust fund for social security has another 18 to 20 years before it's depleted. and i heard one of the candidates say last night that's going to be gone in five years and that people are stealing from you and all of that. that's just not true. reporter: health care costs also a big concern. so far the drug companies have been successful in avoiding having to negotiate with medicare for lower prices. that has to change. it one of my highest priorities because it will help get the cost of health care down. reporter: clinton was also asked who she might consider choosing as her running mate. she said it was way too soon to tell. in berlin, jennifer crompton, wmur news 9. hayley: good evening, everyone. what a wild roller coaster ride we've been on today. we woke up this morning to temperatures that made it feel almost like an august morning and even humidity levels were
5:17 pm
high too, along with the rain showers that moved through and the wind kicked out all of this warm air and we'll start to see cooler air. first stop in claremont, notice all those leaves that are on the lawn there, probably was not helped by all the heavy rain and wind we had overnight. find. same thing in littleton, clouds in place as we look toward cannon and maybe some sun trying to peak through the cloud as the away. so the two big things today, were the heat and also the wind. the wind were incredibly strong. we had gusts upwards of 40, a couple places approaching 50 miles per hour. we had some power outages reported, at this hour still a few communities out. this is the latest, they have significantly dropped off, the wind gusts, so things are looking better. the cold front has swung through.
5:18 pm
still breezy, lebanon 21 miles per hour. jaffrey, 17 miles per hour. so the wind will be moving around as we go through the evening hours and overnight. 76 degrees in concord was the high temperature today. almost close to a record, but portsmouth, you did get to a record. the old record 73. today was 74. the average high for this time in october, 56. so we were a good 20 degrees above that in manchester. here's where we sit right now, 50's up north, that's where the cold air has seeped in, the rest of us in the 60's. so relatively mild evening here that is all about to change because of cloud, showers moving their way through, still some showers up in the mount washington valley area. i wouldn't be surprised if we still have a couple hit or miss showers through the overnight hours as well. big area of low pressure up to the north of us, and this is just sitting and spinning. eventually it going to drag down
5:19 pm
so for the next 24 hours a huge temperature swing instead of 70's like we had today, we're talking more like fifth for highs tomorrow. here we go on future cast, any lingering showers, cloud, should clear by daybreak tomorrow morning, at least in the central and southern new hampshire. there may be lingering showers and even high elevation snow showers early on friday morning up north. then we'll have basically clearing skies for the rest of the day, with temperatures only climbing into the 50's on friday. friday night clear skies, saturday for halloween looking good, perfect for trick or treat first the evening because it will be dry, so a little bit cool. here's your forecast tonight, showers ending, a pretty picture from plymouth. you can see at least some breaks in the cloud, clearing skies overnight and temperatures falling into the 40's up north, 50's in the southern part of the state. big game going on down at gillette tonight, 8:25 the start of the game, pats versus the dolphins, 55 degrees with a bit of a breeze picking up there. here's your forecast for
5:20 pm
tomorrow, 50's across the state and a few 40's up north, a huge change from what we had today. for the trick or treating forecast, temperatures falling through the 40's with clouds increasing, but you don't need the wet weather gear. jean: thank you, haley. cases of breast cancer are
5:21 pm
5:22 pm
jean: a new report finds breast cancer is a growing health concern for black women. josh: dr. timothy johnson explains what is being learned and what all women can do to lower their risk. reporter: breast cancer, while detection and treatment have been improving, it's an established fact that black women tend to fare worse with this disease. now new statistics reveal that black women today get breast cancer as frequently as their white counterparts, a surprise since white women have traditionally been more likely to develop breast cancer. but researchers at the american cancer society looking at data from a large national health survey find that in some states rates are now even hyper in black women. these women are also likely to be diagnosed later when more aggressive forms of cancer take hold, a finding that researchers say might be due to a lack of care. bottom line is that when black
5:23 pm
women do get breast cancer, they are 40% more likely to die than white women. fortunately there are steps that all women can take to lower their risk. eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetableses are maintain a healthy weight, limit alcohol intake, and talk to your doctor about screenings. small steps that may figure big in prevention. jean: straight ahead tonight, passengers rushed to evacuate when their plane catches fire on the runway. josh: getting a makeover can can
