Former OSU Student Enters Guilty Plea; Sentenced to Seven Years Probation

Posted: Updated:

A former Oklahoma State University student has been sentenced to seven years' probation after he pleaded guilty to sexual battery charges.

Nathan Michael Cochran pleaded guilty to three counts of sexual battery on Friday. Prosecutors dismissed a fourth count.

Associate District Judge Stephen R. Kistler sentenced Cochran to seven years' probation and ordered him to complete a six-month in-patient substance abuse and behavioral treatment program.

He must also register as a sex offender.

His attorney, Jay Husbands, says that Cochran has accepted responsibility and is moving forward with his life.

Prosecutors say Cochran molested or attempted to molest male students while they slept in dorm rooms.

Oklahoma State came under fire for not immediately reporting the alleged incidents to authorities, instead opting to handle complaints against Cochran through disciplinary boards.
