exceptional young man. a reverend from connecticut extolled the virtues of owen la braintree over three pages, pleading for mercy from the judge, me wrote, he is humbled to the core, grateful for that which the rest of us take for granted. please let him move on. he will not waste the gift. >> the judge is going to look to his youth, lack of a prior record, other accomplishments and letters of recommendation that have been submitted on his behalf. reporter: owen's mother wrote a letter describing her only child as a gifted student whose parents divorced when he was a toddler. money was scarce. but owen sparkled from the very beginning, as an exceptional student. the offer of a full scholarship to st. paul's school, the culmination of years of sacrifice. a dream come true. in the days following the initial police interrogation, labrie's mother wrote her son was suicidal, watching his dream of harvard dissolve. holland begged the judge for
without the stigma of incarceration. >> the judge has to also consider deterrence, the judge has to consider what kind of message this send to other young men that might be out there engaging in similar conduct. reporter: one of the charges labrie was convicted of is a felony related to using a computer, that of course carries the most serious potential sentence. the court did not receive the stay sentencing memorandum by closing time today, they anticipate they'll get that tomorrow morning. sentencing scheduled for 1:30. josh: tonight police have identified the man who was the focus of a standoff in laconia. an arrest warrant has been issued for 26-year-old robert audette to felony criminal threatening. police surrounded the apartment building on jewett street yesterday where they thought audette was. after firing tear gas into the building, officers made their way inside, but audette was gone.

laws aimed at combating the heroin crisis. this comes after the governor called for a special session to work on legislation with the goal of of getting a bill on her desk by the end of january. >> we have been talking about this for some time and while there is bipartisan agreement that we need to pass legislation to address this issue, we haven't, i haven't heard a commitment from legislative leadership for a special session. and we're running out of time. reporter: despite her concerns, still no commitment from republican senators wednesday, as they outlined several bills they'd like to move forward on, including drug courts, changes to prescription drug monitoring and a study commission on long-term recovery. >> the governor certainly has the ability to call for a special session, but i think what's really most important is that we do this in a coordinated, comprehensive, well thought out way so that we don't make any mistakes so that we solve the problem and we don't have to come back and correct it. reporter: many of the priorities

she highlighted points of her economic agenda. but her trip also comes amid new controversy. in which she said the recent scandal at the v.a. had been overblown. and in a one on one interview she elaborated, saying there are systemic problems at the agency that do need to be fixed. >> but i am worry about some people trying to use the fact that we need to make major reforms as a justification for dismantling the v.a., and my comments were more directed at that. reporter: we also asked her about the implication she made that bernie samers was a sexist for remarks he made about raising her voice during the debate. do you believe he's attacking you based on your gender? >> what i said was during the debate when i heard him say that people should stop shouting about guns. >> for all the shouting in the world -- >> i didn't think i was shouting. i thought i was making a strong case.

hayley: it is definitely a wet one this evening. the last shots up in the north country there about a half-hour ago, you can see the rain, the thick clouds up in littleton and then some live shots of the monadnock region and at the seacoast where we have the rain coming down. it is mostly cloudy. but temperatures actually aren't going to get all that cold tonight. in fact they're going to go up instead of down. by daybreak tomorrow morning a lot of us waking up in the 60's as warm air surges in. here's the latest on the radar. looks like we get a bit of a break especially in the monadnock region, and in the next couple hours this area of a break in the rainfall action will start to move in. so if you have evening plans and you're heading out within the next half-hour, 45 minutes, you might actually be able to get couple minutes. but those of you up north or the lakes region, it is pouring, you're hearing it pour outside your house right now. light to moderate rainfall from

especially at the seacoast where there's a wind advisory that's been posted for the immediate coastline. tomorrow morning this is 6:00 a.m. and the winds are still gusting. they become more southerly tomorrow morning and that's when the warm air really starts to surge in here. finally it will start to diminish the wind once we get to midday. but tomorrow is going to be a breezy day no matter how you cut it, just not as gusty as what we'll have overnight tonight. so at the coast there's a flood watch posted through thursday morning and that's because of the high astronomical tide and the winds. so splashover may be possible after midnight tonight with the high tide. that will be going on about 12:51. as we go through time, the heaviest rain comes through overnight, you may even hear some thunder. then tomorrow morning the rain actually starts to taper off, we might even see the sunshine as the temperatures get up into the 70's in some communities,
