The victim in the Owen Labrie sexual assault case will speak out publicly for the first time during an interview on NBC’s The Today Show Tuesday morning.

The teenage girl has remained anonymous since the assault took place on the St. Paul’s School campus in May of 2014. She was 15 years old at the time.

In August, Labrie was found guilty of misdemeanor sexual assault, but was acquitted of felony rape charges. He was sentenced to a year in jail, but is free on bail during an appeal.

In June, the victim’s parents filed a civil lawsuit against the Concord prep school, claiming the school failed to protect their daughter.

The school has denied those claims.
