OSU Officials Release Statement, Sexual Assault Suspect Suspended

Posted: Updated:

The suspect accused of sexually assaulting five OSU students is being suspended for three years by the university.

He's also not allowed to have any contact with the victims.

The former OSU fraternity member is accused of assaulting at least five Farm House pledges in Stillwater and Tahlequah.

The allegations include groping, oral sex, and rape.

OSU conducted an internal investigation after learning the allegations.

Police first found out about the investigation through an article in the school's newspaper.

The university released a statement, saying "Oklahoma State University followed all laws, including the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and policies while carrying out its student conduct process. The university acted responsibly and swiftly to take action on the allegations brought forward by students.

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

The fraternity president says none of the alleged actions happened in the fraternity house. He says the suspect is no longer affiliated with the Farm House fraternity.

It's believed more victims could be out there. They're asked to call the Stillwater Police at 405-742-8287.

KTUL.com is not naming the suspect since no criminal charges have been filed.
