Jameis Winston not charged in sexual assault case

Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexual assault. State attorney Willie Meggs has determined that there is not enough substantial evidence for Winston to be charged with the crime.

The alleged assault occurred in December 2012, and reached national media in November 2013, nearly a year later. Counsel representing Winston’s accuser later released a statement saying Tallahassee Police advised against pursuing charges, on account of the high profiles of Winston and the university’s football program. Winston’s attorney, Tim Jansen, next held a press conference explaining that his client had fully cooperated with police, and that while Winston’s DNA matched a sample taken from the accuser’s underwear, he would be exonerated. Meggs has since concluded his investigation and decided not to charge Winston with the crime.

Winston’s Seminoles are currently ranked No. 1 in the nation, and are one victory away from the BCS Championship Game. Individually, Winston is a Heisman Trophy frontrunner, after an exceptional redshirt freshman season. Had Winston been charged with a felony, he would have been ineligible to play, per Florida State University policy.
