Nate Parker can’t win for losing. The Birth of a Nation director’s name is involved in another sexual misconduct allegation at Penn State.
The incident occurred back in 2000, when Parker was on the wrestling team.
A female student trainer claims 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 … this according to a New York Times report. She claimed Nate told her he wanted to show her something, and then pulled his pants down exposing the top half of his penis.
Nate’s lawyer says the allegation is “completely untrue.”
Prosecutors are reportedly investigating the University’s handling of the student’s complaint. She reported the alleged incident to the school’s assistant athletic director and the school encouraged her to report it to police, but she dropped the matter … she says because she feared retaliation.
Prosecutors are looking into the way the school handled the matter and whether they were appropriately aggressive.
However, his friend Jean Celestin, who is also a co-writer of The Birth of a Nation was found guilty. He appealed, and the victim chose not to testify, leading to the dismissal of the re-trial.
Parker has always maintained that the sex was consensual.
