(The Lyfe News) Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not face charges in the investigation of a sexual battery complaint from December 2012.
Not long after the news conference, documents from the investigation were released by the Tallahassee Police Department and Florida Department of Law Encforcement. The accuser told police that she remembers consuming several shared drinks with friends at Potbelly’s, a Tallahassee establishment, but was not sure how she ended up in a cab with the suspect “Winston” and other males. Other Florida State football players named in the police documents of the case include defensive end Chris Casher (Winston’s roommate at the time) and defensive back Ronald Darby. The accuser told police that she was assaulted in the bedroom of a first-floor apartment matching the description of the residence shared by Winston and Casher.
The accuser did not identify the suspect as Jameis Winston until January 2013, when the woman saw Winston in a class. The Tallahassee Police Department alerted Winston to the allegations, but the case was then suspended on Feb. 11, 2013 “due to a lack of cooperation from the victim.”
Heisman Trophy ballots are due Dec. 9th, after the final week of the regular season and conference championship games.
Jameis Winston finished two votes short of being a unanimous first-team choice on the All-ACC team and was named the league’s Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year on Wednesday. His 192.6 passing efficiency rating leads the nation and he set a new Florida State single-season record with 35 passing touchdowns in 2013.
