Suspended OSU student, ex-FarmHouse fraternity member Nathan Cochran charged with sexual battery

STILLWATER, Okla. - A warrant has been issued for an Oklahoma State student and former interfraternity officer a day after the university suspended him for three years for sexual abuse.

Nathan Cochran faces three counts of sexual battery for alleged offenses dating back to November 2011.

In a statement issued Tuesday evening, the university explained Nathan Cochran violated OSU's code of conduct four times.

OSU's Daily O'Collegian first reported Monday about an anonymous email they received accusing a former FarmHouse fraternity member of 10 sexual assaults, occurring on campus and elsewhere.

In the release, the university said during an internal investigation it met with five alleged victims, none of which opted to contact police at that time.

"The university's thoughts are with the students involved and OSU appreciates the cooperation of the students who brought allegations forward," read the statement.

According to Stillwater police, all of the alleged victims are men.

Under the suspension, Cochran is banned from the university as of Dec. 14 and may not have any contact with any of the alleged victims. OSU also stated none of Cochran's accusers are minors.

Cochran is listed as OSU's Interfraternity Council secretary for 2011-2012.

Tuesday, OSU FarmHouse chapter president Nick Jordan said Cochran is "no longer associated" with the organization.
