Retired Oklahoma State University professor charged with indecent exposure, sexual battery

STILLWATER, Okla. — A retired Oklahoma State University professor was charged Monday with indecent exposure and sexual battery following an indecent exposure incident in May in Oklahoma State University's Edmon Low Library.

Keith Owen Tribble, 1616 E. McElroy, is charged with indecent exposure and sexual battery in connection with a May 7 incident on the fourth floor of the university's library.

A warrant has been issued for Tribble's arrest, according to Payne County Court Clerk records.

University spokesman Carrie Hulsey-Greene said Tribble retired in April.

Tribble is accused of exposing himself to a student in the library bathroom.

Tribble was a professor at OSU for 23 years, teaching courses in Russian language and literature.

If convicted, Tribble could face up to a $20,000 fine and/or incarceration for up to 20 years.
