According to State Attorney Willie Meggs, no sexual assault charges will be filed against Florida State Quarterback Jameis Winston. Meggs making the announcement in a news conference on Thursday afternoon.
For the first nine games of the 2013 season, everything was coming up roses for the Florida State Seminoles. As the No. 1 ranked team in the nation prepares for the ACC Championship Game Saturday, it appears it still is.
The Seminoles were facing their first real shot at a national football championship since 1999, led by Heisman frontrunner, red-shirt freshman Jameis Winston.
They had coasted to a 9-0 record while Winston had become one of the most prolific players in the country, passing for over 2,600 yards and 26 touchdowns with only seven interceptions and adding three TDs on the ground.
Then, just like that, it seemed as if it would all change.
On November 13th, TMZ.com broke a story that Winston, the always-smiling, exhuberant QB, was possibly involved in a sexual assault.
In the short time since, the college football world had become engulfed in the unfortunate situation, with most media members choosing their words carefully and keeping Winston's on the field performance in the forefront.
Tim Brando, host of College Football Today, reminded people to tread lightly in situations like this on the Ron and Ian Show.
"I agree with you that it is very serious; it is very delicate. Those of us in the media business, you can't just dismiss it because then you're being heavy-handed with the alleged victim, but at the same time I think you have to tread very, very carefully because we just don't know."
It seems as if now we do.
The Florida State Attorney General's Office held a press conference Thursday afternoon and annouced charges will not be filed against Winston.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Search warrants in the sexual assault investigation of Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston indicate the woman told police she was raped at an apartment after a night of drinking at a bar.
The search warrants were released Thursday, hours before a prosecutor was set to announce whether the Heisman Trophy contender will be charged in the case.
In the warrant, the alleged victim says she and friends had shots at Potbellys and her "memory is very broken from that point forward." She says she remembers being in a cab with a man and going into an apartment before she was raped.
After that, she remembers the suspect dressing her, putting her on a scooter and dropping her off at an intersection, but she had no idea where the alleged rape occurred.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The prosecutor overseeing the investigation of sexual assault allegations against Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston says it is completed.
State Attorney Willie Meggs has scheduled a news conference at 2 p.m. Thursday in his office to announce his findings.
Meggs says investigators have learned as much as they can about the December 2012 incident.
A lawyer for Winston has suggested that the star quarterback and the accuser had consensual sex. But the family of the victim has accused the 19-year-old of rape.
Meggs has said he wanted to make sure prosecutors completed a thorough investigation before making a final decision. He has also said several times that it's up to prosecutors to determine whether there is a "reasonable" chance of conviction.
