Nate Parker found himself in the center of another sexual misconduct allegation — but this time Penn State is being investigated.
A female student trainer claims that in 2000, while Nate was on the wrestling team and awaiting trial on a rape allegation, he exposed himself to her while she gave him a back treatment, according to the New York Times.
The woman claims Nate told her he wanted to show her something, and then pulled his pants down to expose the top half of his penis.
Nate’s lawyer says the allegation is “completely untrue.”
The revelation comes as part of an investigation looking into Penn State’s handling of student sexual misconduct reports.
Prosecutors are trying to assess whether the school’s handling of Mr. Parker suggests a broader pattern of inaction by the athletic department when it came to complaints of sexual misconduct, according to two law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation who are not authorized to discuss it publicly.
A lawyer for Mr. Curley declined to comment on the Parker case, saying that education law prohibits the release of information about students and that questions should be directed to Penn State.
Mr. Parker has no direct connection to the criminal case against the university officials and he faces no legal problems. He has consistently said that the rape accusation, in which he and a friend were accused of assaulting a drunken woman, was false, and that the encounter was consensual. And he said through his lawyer that he was never told of any exposure complaint, and that no such incident had occurred.
“This is the first Mr. Parker has ever heard of this,” David J. Matlof, his lawyer, said in an email. “He recognizes the seriousness of the issue, but this claim is completely untrue.”
