Fraternity Leader Facing Four Counts of Sexual Assault

Nathan Cochran was arrested on December 12, 2012, and charged with three counts of sexual battery, after two men accused the fraternity leader of sexually assaulting them while they slept. Following his arrest last month, Cochran denied the accusations filed against him and plead not guilty at a court hearing. The new charge alleges that the suspended student, currently out on a $100,000 bond, sexually assaulted one male on August 11, 2012, while he was attempting to sleep in a bed. According to the alleged victim, Cochran placed his hands on the man’s leg and lower back, and attempted to place his hands inside his pants. According to court records, the alleged victim stated that Cochran told him he wanted to know what it was like to be with a male sexually.
