In North Country (movie from 2005 based in Minnesota) it is revealed near the end that Loris teacher raped her when she was 16, what happened to him after this. It's not addressed in the movie but in real life something must have happened to him.
This is a very commonly asked question, and reasonably so. What happened in real life (as well as the book series based off it) is the rapist is sentenced to do 15 years in prison. About 68 days into his sentence, he tried to escape, but was not successful. His sentence was then extended five extra years, but he died before he could finish it. Great question.
